Imelda's song writing is of top quality and it's for that reason that the album can be listened to over and over and over and you will keep picking up on bits you hadn't noticed the 37 times before. ” - Dave McMahon

Born – Leeds, United Kingdom. Lives Wexford, Ireland (Nationality – Irish).  

Imelda Kehoe is an Irish Contemporary Folk Singer Songwriter. Though there are influences from Contemporary Folk and Jazz/Blues, it’s difficult to pin a specific genre to the style. Described as ‘A Rare Songstress in today’s music’ by Pure M, the songs are melody-rich, full of stories of life and written with the listener at heart. 


From a big Irish/English family, she trained as a Nurse and worked in A&E and Intensive Care in Leeds working in the inner City. She cites these life experiences as being influential in her writing. 

Her music taste is eclectic, from Pink Floyd to Amy Winehouse and the classics from her Father’s record collection like Nat King Cole, Glen Campbell & Buddy Holly. 

Imelda has been involved in the music scene in Wexford for the past 10 years through choirs, music groups and Open mic nights before teaming up with local legend, Michael Egan as a Song Writer. 

Ordinary Star is the first release from Imelda's forthcoming Album, recorded at Windmill Lane Studios in Dublin. The Album is expected to be ready towards the end of 2020.
