Imelda Kehoe – Please Say Yes | New Music
Imelda Kehoe is an Irish, English Contemporary Folk singer-songwriter.
She was born in Leeds but she kept moving across England and Wales while her parents renovated old properties. She grown up listening to her father soundtracks record collection, which included Nat King Cole, Buddy Holly, Neil Diamond, Simon and Garfunkel and the Beach Boys. These musically rich tracks inspired her todays music production.
So, with all of these influences, she creates her own style which often switches between genres.
her tracks are Folk, Blues, Jazz and Americana. Her melody are full of life experience and always written with the listener at heart.
Bobby Green says about her: ’You don’t need bells and whistles with a voice so honest and songs so beautifully classic in their arrangement. This album really did stop me in my tracks, and I am thankful for it.”
As example, she trained as an Emergency and Intensive Car Nurse in Leeds, and these experience have shaped her writing. She now lives in Wexford, Ireland.
After a year of playing Sold Out gigs in her home town, she’s looking bigger and in 2020 she’ll be playing at the National Opera House. Her dream is to perform with a Live Orchestra.
Nowadays, she has just released a new track from her forthcoming second album due to be release in 2020.Titled “Please Say Yes” has been released as a Christmas single. It’s an emotive acoustic track dealing with emigration in the 80’s. It’s a story of hopes, dreams and adventure and all the things that might happen in life the way.
Clever emotional lyrics, her voice, and a classic guitar, that all.
I spent 18 years in Africa due to my father’s job, and this experience has made me want to become a journalist. Writing has always been one of my hobbies, as well as art. I’m passionate about 60’s film, art house film, and also by modern art.
