Imelda May at Bonnaroo

Imelda May, Does She Play?
Voyage-Air? She did This Day!

 

 Stopping by the Artist Catering Tent at Bonnaroo this year, Imeda May was immediately drawn to the Voyage-Air Guitar sitting in the corner. Her fascination with it had her holding it, playing it, folding it. She just couldn’t put it down. Click the link for the video below to see her playing the guitar, and what she had to say.

Born in Dublin, she is already a superstar with her debut album”Love Tatto” , which has gone Triple Platinum. She has shared a stage with U2, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Van Morrison, Lionel Richie and most recently, the first lade of rockabilly, Wanda Jackson. In 2009, Imelda knocked Bruce Springsteen off No. 1 to become the first female Irish artist to top the Irish album charts since Mary Black nealy 20 years ago. She then went on to win Female Artist of the Year at the Irish Meteor Awards.

Despite album success, Imelda continued to tour, playing to over 400 000 people in 8 countries across Europe and the US – including, most recently a US tour with Jamie Cullum.

Imelda has not only caught people’s attention musically, her striking style and unmistakable cool but quirky 50s look has led her to grace the front cover of the Irish Sunday Times Style, Roberto Cavalli flew her out to perform at his private party during the Milan Fashion Week.

2010 got off to an auspicious start when Imelda accepted an offer from Jeff Beck to perform with him at the Grammys. This was followed in April by a two night support slot in London with one of her idols, Wanda Jackson.

Her new album ‘Mayhem’ sees Imelda continue to develop her uniquely modern fusion of classic musical genres. The record not only showcases her exceptional songwriting ability, but also displays some more disparate influences, with first single Psycho seeing Imelda channel the spirit of early PJ Harvey, whilst the heartbreakingly poignant “Kentish Town Waltz” conjures an image of Chrissie Hynde at her most reflective.

Recently bestowed with the title of Ambassador for the Irish Make a Wish Foundation, Imelda shows her compassion and energy for helping others. She has invited Voyage-Air Guitar to join her in this new venture. Check back for more info!
