Alongside the rather unlikely choice of Stereophonics, Bob Dylan recently named Imelda May as one of the finest musicians working today. And he’s not the only high-profile fan – May has performed with Lou Reed, Bono, Jeff Beck and Tom Jones among many others.
The Irish singer-songwriter started out playing bars in Dublin as a teenager, and began honing her twist on blues and rockabilly. In 2008 her album Love Tattoo went to No 1 in Ireland and broke the UK thanks in part to the patronage of Jools Holland. Her next two records both hit the UK Top 10. New album Life. Love. Flesh. Blood, written in the wake of a divorce, sees her take a left turn into country soul aided by producer T Bone Burnett.
With the album out now, she joins us to answer your questions in a live webchat from 1pm BST on Monday 24 April – post them in the comments below, and she’ll answer as many as possible.
