Live Photos: Behind the Scenes with Imelda May

Though we have less than a month to wait for Imelda May’s fifth LP, Life. Love. Flesh. Blood., the Irish rockabilly apostle previewed new tracks last week at The Cutting Room in Midtown Manhattan. Compared to 2014’s Tribal (produced with snarky, snaking energy by Mike Crossey), the upcoming album is produced by Americana legend T Bone Burnett, reveling in a stripped-down, bluesy bent that still keeps May’s powerful pipes in the spotlight. Photographer Jeanette D. Moses captured May during soundcheck and for the live show, surrounded by a buoyant band and backup singers. Imelda May is on tour in the UK throughout May.
