But her career didn't stall there. In 2007, after years of singing in clubs and an underground debut, Imelda May stole the spotlight with "Love Tattoo". The 12-track collection shot to the #1 spot in Ireland, displacing Bruce Springsteen and stealing the hearts of audiences and contemporaries the world over. May has since won a Meteor award and shared a stage with a very impressive and long list of artists, including The Supremes, Lou Reed, Jools Holland, Elvis Costello, Jeff Beck, Meat Loaf, and Lionel Ritchie, among others.
May released a followup to "Love Tattoo", which reached US shores in 2011. "Mayhem" is a continuation and evolution of May's bluesy, rocking jazz. It showcases May's penchant for witty lyrics, mixed genres, and energizing rockabilly. Also including more than a hint of country and May's unmistakable, powerful vocals, "Mayhem" builds on the balladry that first ushered Imelda May into the international spotlight. It's no wonder that "Mayhem" was released to a #1 spot on Irish charts, and has since become Imelda May's best-selling effort yet. It's clear that Imelda May is here to stay.
