I was brought up listen-ing to everything from Bing Crosby and Nat</p><p>King Cole to TheCarpenters, TheSpecials, DavidBowie, Meat Loaf a huge amountof different, greatmusic.</p><p>One of mybrothers was into rockabilly Elvis, GeneVincent, Wanda Jackson and I just wentcrazy for it, but then I also went crazy forwhat came after. Ian Dury, Adam Ant, theClash, the Ramones and all these bands thatmade sense to me in my world.</p><p>JZ: You started performing in clubs at 16 andwere sometimes thrown out for being underage.How was it for you to get gigs in venues thatserved alcohol?</p><p>IM: My brothers and sisters used to sneakme in because I was way too young andthe owner used to turn a blind eye I dontthink you could get away with that anymore.Thats where I learned my trade. Ive nevergone to music college - that was my musiccollege. I soaked it all up and I loved it.</p><p>JZ: After working with some bands for a fewyears, you decided to go solo. What prompted thatdecision?</p><p>IM: I was bored. Not bored with music orthe bands, but I needed a challenge I waswriting my own music since I was 14 yearsold, but kept quiet about it. Like a lot of art-ists, I just wrote for myself and kept all mysongs in a big bag.</p><p>It came to a point where I didnt want tosing other peoples songs anymore. I really,really wanted to do my own stuff. I neededto push myself. Thats when I thought, itsnow or never.</p><p>JZ: Youve really carved out a style that is allyour own. How long did it take for you to find thesound that you were looking for?</p><p>IM: Not long, but forever and not long.Its like, Oh, shes an overnight sensationafter 25 years. Ive been in blues bands, jazzbands, swing bands, soul bands, rock bands,rockabilly bands it took forever, if youknow what I mean, to really get into all ofthese, but then when I was writing my songs,obviously, it all seeped into it.</p><p>Imelda charts her own courseIrish singer brings her jazz-rockabilly-blues sounds to theBurnaby Blues Fest stage</p><p>Photo contributed/burnaby now</p><p>Solo style: Irish songstress Imelda May brings her unique sound to the Burnaby Blues &amp;Roots Festival stage on Aug. 9.</p><p>ON MY BEATJacob Zinn</p><p>Imelda May Page 8</p><p>For avideo,scanwithLayar</p><p>Burnaby NOW Friday, July 25, 2014 3</p></li><li><p>4 Friday, July 25, 2014 Burnaby NOW</p><p>whitespot.ca</p><p>Celebrate BCA local celebration of freshness!From vine to glass and field to fork, we invite you to Celebrate BC with deliciousdishes inspired by fresh, local ingredients and paired with outstanding, BC VQA wines.Celebrate BC.
