Style/Music: Imelda May
Imelda May – (born Imelda Mary Clabby – 10 July 1974) Imelda May is something else – great set of pipes, sweet hair-do, extremely pretty, extremely talented – and to top it off, she’s Irish! Rockabilly from Ireland – who would have guessed? Imelda and her band play a pretty straight forward version of classic rockabilly with an occasional jazz-tinged ballad thrown in for good measure. She has recorded 3 LPs – Mayhem 2010/2011, Love Tattoo 2009 and No Turning Back, 2002 as Imelda Clabby (good thing she dropped the Clabby bit). After you’re done looking at her, listen to a couple of cuts – Johnny Got a Boom-Boom (from Love Tattoo) or Mayhem (from Mayhem) – you’ll be sold.
