Born Optimistic Imelda May Irish Music Podcast

Renowned Irish singer-songwriter Imelda May talks optimism, song writing at 13, and the importance of fulfilling a creative spark.



Imelda’s down to earth and relaxed personality makes for a fantastic listen as she takes us through the story of her early career, travelling and performing with little or no money. She tells us about how she ‘enjoyed the journey rather than focusing on the destination’, an admirable quality we can all take something from.

From a musical family with a wide range of influence, her art has touched thousands, making her a role model to many, young and old, even if that is a scary idea in her own head! All the same Imelda expresses her thoughts on the importance of embracing love rather than fear in life. An insightful and extremely kind person, along with a creative spark and wonderful singing voice, its no wonder Imelda May has had this amazing success over the past few years. Have a listen, and enjoy!
