Dublin, Ireland's Imelda May is a unique vocal talent, one whose gift lies outside the normal order of pop culture time and trends. Inspired by vocal jazz and rockabilly, May began performing with the swing outfit Blue Harlem, and released a handful of independent CDs before scoring attention in 2007 with the release of her official debut, Love Tattoo. The album, featuring her strong backing band, was critically and commercially well received, leading to some high-profile live gigs, including hitting the road with Jools Holland. It was released in the U.S.A. by Decca in 2009 and scored a mid-level success. Her sophomore effort, Mayhem, arrived in 2010. ~ Chris True
