Mary Coughlan is our greatest female singer because over thirty-three years and sixteen albums she’s made the most grown-up, uncompromising, wholly personal and utterly universal music on either side of the Atlantic.
Mary Coughlans first album, Tired and Emotional, sold 100,000 albums in Ireland in 1985, mainly off the back of plays on Mark Cagney’s “Nightrain” radio show.
She has recorded 15 more albums since then !
