I don't like a lot of chick musicians.
I suppose that's just being unfair, but if you put all the bands/singers I like in a list, I'm sure 85% of them are dudes.
I don't know why. Same thing with comedians. You gotta have something special if you're a chick and you want me to take notice.
Ok Feminists, you can flame me all you want, this is your chance.
Now that you got that out of your systems...
I do, however, like a few. And I love Imelda May. Her album 'Love Tattoo' was one of our in-store play CDs at the bookstore a few months ago.
Imelda May is originally from Dublin. Her music mainly has a rockabilly feel, but there's some blues thrown in for good measure. She sings and plays the bodhrán.
'Big Bad Handsome Man' is my favourite song. Very sexy, very slinky. Makes me want to put on a tight satin dress and sip a martini.
A dirty martini. *phwoar*
Imelda May has a fantastic, distinctive voice and a striking look. She just started touring in the U.S. this year. I'm hoping she widens the scope of cities in the future, because they've all been too far away from me.
December 2010 through February 2011 she's in Ireland and England, so if you live in these places you should go down and check her out. Just to make me jealous.
You can see her playing on her bodhrán in 'Johnny Got A Boom-Boom'.
She's coming out with a new album called 'Mayhem' this October 4th. This is the title cut from the album.
If you'll excuse me, I've got to get up and dance now...
