One of Ireland’s greatest soulful jazz and blues singers Mary Coughlan will release her highly anticipated album ‘Life Stories’. Mary Coughlan is one of Ireland’s greatest female jazz and blues singers, a true artist who has carved out a highly regarded career and a legion of devoted fans worldwide. Described as ‘Ireland’s Billie Holiday’ Mary has overcome childhood trauma, alcoholism & drug addiction to become a musical force like no other.

The new studio album from Irish jazz, blues and folk singer and actress Mary Coughlan, who has received great acclaim, particularly in her native Ireland where she is considered musical royalty, for her emotional and heartfelt renditions. The new album, “”Life Stories”” was mostly written and recorded by Pete Glenister and Mary at No Name Studio in London in the summer of 2019 and finished in February 2020.

“Life Stories” is one of the best albums I’ve heard this year. It’s a journey from pessimism to optimism with occasional flashbacks and doesn’t ignore the fact that even the most horrific journeys can have their humorous twists and turns. It’s a fine set of musicians creating settings that make these twelve diamonds sparkle.” (

“Her life story gives weight to the truth that the best singers are the ones with the most painful lives.” (The Guardian)

“Bitter, seductive, raunchy, contemptuous. Startling songs of lust and disillusion.” (MOJO)
