Decca Records artist Imelda May performed an intimate and exclusive music industry showcase in the famous Gibson Guitar Studio in Central London on Wednesday, June 2. The Irish-born singer performed a number of hits from her debut album Love Tattoo as well as her new single “Psycho,” taken from her forthcoming studio album Mayhem. The album is due September 6 in the U.K. (no U.S. date has been set yet). May was last seen performing at The Grammy Awards in Los Angeles with Jeff Beck, singing “How High The Moon” in honor of the late, great Les Paul. Imelda will also join up with Jeff Beck and special guests at the Iridium Club in New York on June 8 and 9 to mark what would have been Les Paul’s 95th Birthday.
Having fallen in love with rockabilly and the blues as a nine-year-old girl growing up in Dublin, Imelda turned her musical influence into a cool, swinging fusion that’s both classic, catchy and relevant. Her musical heart lies primarily in early rock and roll, but she sprinkles her own unique 21st century spin on it. May is due to embark on a busy European and U.S. tour, taking in key cities in Ireland, the U.S., Spain, Switzerland and the U.K., including a show on the acoustic stage at the Glastonbury Festival on June 26th.
