She's never been one to pull her punches but even by her standards, Mary Coughlan's latest album is a rollercoaster. Here, she talks about a life of love, loss, pain and redemption.
At 52 years of age, Mary Coughlan has delivered her 13th and best album The House Of Ill Repute, a definitive work that veers from burlesque to blues, from heartbroken to hardbitten. But like any record worth the time of day, it comes with a fair amount of collateral damage to the heart. There isn’t a trivial note in any of these songs.
The House Of Ill Repute is out now on Rubyworks
