Irish rockabilly queen Imelda has come a long way since her self-released debut album in 2005. Her 3rd major label album 'Mayhem' has caused mayhem throughout the world, clearly finding an audience who weren't being catered for by most modern artists. Her stompin' anthems 'Johnny Got A Boom Boom', 'Psycho' and 'Inside Out' could be 1950s classics. Her special blend of old rock 'n' roll with rhythm 'n' blues takes you on a twistin' ride through influences by Wanda Jackson, Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent, but all delivered by Imelda's own unique voice and lyrics.
“The problem with an artist like Imelda May is that she’s so good, it makes a critical review almost impossible to write; her performance is flawless.” – Clash Magazine
