Mary Coughlan on her new album and her remarkable Life Stories
WHEN MARY Coughlan began work on the album that would become Life Stories, there was no such thing as Covid-19. She completed the album during lockdown, and has released it, when small scale music gigs are possible.
It is another remarkable chapter in the life stories of Mary Coughlan, one of the greatest singers to ever come from Galway, and who is also, arguably, Ireland’s finest jazz vocalist.
Life Stories - released last week - is a triumph, one the best in a career spanning 35 years. “The response has been amazing,” Mary tells me during our Tuesday afternoon conversation. “It’s been number one on iTunes and Amazon, the support of people has been incredible.”
