The rockabilly queen from The Liberties in Dublin has become a global phenomenon, winning new fans wherever she appears. Her third album, Tribal was the second to be packaged by Stylorouge, and has sold xxx copies more than both of her previous albums together.
During the four years we’ve been working for Imelda, we’ve also created a host of singles bags, merchandise, two EPK’s, and three live concert shoots, one of which became a pop promo. Rob O’Connor has art directed two major location shoots with Imelda, with Chris Clor and Barry McCall respectively, and has done a shoot of his own, at London’s Ace Cafe, where two behind-the-scenes video clips were also shot by Stylorouge as part of the Tribal marketing campaign.
She is without doubt an amazing talent and one of the favourite music artists we’ve ever worked with.
Her guitarist/husband Darrel Higham has a side project – KatMen – with former Stray Cat, Slim Jim Phantom, and drummer Steve Rushton has a similar extra-curricular big-band activity in Rare Orchid, which features vocalist Louise Cookman. Stylorouge have designed sleeves for both of these projects with Rob O’Connor taking the photographs.
