MUSIC NOTES: Imelda May’s Palpable Coolness

by Steve Houk

One of popular music’s coolest stars is anything but a diva…she’s down to earth, swings to a unique sound, and yeah, she’s worked hard for her money.


Anyone who works at a nursing home singing old songs with the elderly to make them happier, or rescues an injured crow who’s fallen out of a tree, has to be considered pretty darn cool.

But add to that an incredible singing voice, stunning good looks, a musical style that blends several different genres, and a career headed to the absolute stratosphere, and well, that makes Imelda May even cooler. As well as the fact that she comes off as one of the nicest, most sincere and thoroughly engaging people…uber-cool actually…that you’d ever want to spend time talking to.
