"As winter lands and we turn up the (double) bass and swing into another festive season, Imelda May rocks into the party with an electric new album of future classics - it's smoky, it's sultry, it's hotter than Mrs. Claus doing the hootchy cootchy for Santa and it's yours to own now!
Inspired by such Jazz greats as Billy Holiday, Dinah Washington, and the undisputed queen of rockabilly, Wanda Jackson, Imelda May is forging a contemporary sound all of her own. With a nod to the glory days of old but with her heart and soul very much in the present, this rockin' little minx belts them out with all the musical force of a veteran rockabilly wildcat! As one reviewer put it, Imelda May has a 'voice so throaty and powerful, it suggests that this young twenty-something actually lived through the 1950s' (METRO)." Imelda May website 2007
"The Fly is a peculiar venue. It’s usually for the metal/rock types to premiere/experiment new material but tonight Dublin born Imelda May is here to sample her soulful/folky tunes on an unsuspecting audience. She is currently promoting her album 'Love Tattoo’ and is soon to be supporting Jools Holland on tour, which is a high accolade for a singer trying to establish herself. Imelda May proudly stands on the stage with her Rock chick hair and styles and commences her jazzy, sumptuous music. Her vocals are immense and pierces through the venue. Looking ever so cool and calm, she sings her songs with ease and has fun with it. Imelda May completely owns the stage and her sultry sexy stage are captivating. At times her tunes sound like the B52’s which is a wonderful combination of hectic, fairground music and husky vocals..." Music-News.com
