    Episode 9: Imelda Kehoe

    Imelda Kehoe is an Irish Contemporary Folk Singer Songwriter. She has created her own style, which is influenced by Folk, Blues and with elements of Soul. Her songs are Melody rich, full of stories, life experiences written with the listener at heart and with a definite World music feel.
    'Beautiful, heartbreaking pop inspired songs that trip along and pull you in to their melodies and chord structures that are reminiscent of Paul Weller's Butterfly Collector or English Rose' Billy Roche, Songwriter, Playwright, Actor
    From a big Irish/English family, Imelda was born in Leeds but spent most of her childhood moving around and living in beautiful locations in England and Wales while her parents renovated old properties to the soundtrack of her Father’s record collection, which included Nat King Cole, Buddy Holly, Simon and Garfunkel, Mamas and Papas and the Beach Boys. She describes these early influences as shaping her love of good melody.   She trained as Nurse in Leeds and worked in inner City A&E and Intensive Care departments and cites these experiences as being influential in her Song Writing.

    Pierce Turner is an Irish singer-songwriter who grew up in the port town of Wexford, where he played music as a child and wrote his first song at age 12. His parents had a record shop in Wexford town.
    Recently Pierce was signed to a new boutique record label called Story Sound who are backing his new album which he is recording with guitarist Gerry Leonard who has also worked with David Bowie, Suzanne Vega and Rufus Wainwright.
    Following his first professional job at 18 was as a musician with the pop showband The Arrows, Pierce moved to New York City and recorded several albums with Larry Kirwan.

Christy Moore recorded two of Turner's songs "Wicklow Hills" and "Musha God Help Her". Moore's 2004 box set includes the track I Love the Way Pierce Turner Sings.
    “There is no-one in the whole wide world of music quite like Pierce Turner; a unique visionary, the owner of a voice that drips emotion, a consummate lyricist and the creator of tunes which are both complex and accessible...Listen and marvel”
