The young Amy Winehouse from North-London is one of the new, twinkling singer/songwriter stars. She doesn’t only have a remarkable, hoarse voice, reminiscent of Lauren Hill or even Billie Holiday, she also displays a form of straightforwardness that is typical of these modern times. Let’s make one thing clear: Winehouse may be only twenty, but her subjects are a lot wiser and more explicit than those of your average One Hit Wonder in the charts. She commands a lot of different styles as we can hear on her debut CD Frank. From seventies soul and modern R&B she goes straight into jazz classics that she gives the sweltering soul ballad approach. All in all, this wayward singer with a lot of grit in her is a newcomer to cherish. And what will she sound like live?
