Bio

5 times Grammy winner, Amy Jade Winehouse is remembered for songs like 'Rehab' and 'Valerie' whose musical career blossomed as a jazz vocalist with an eclectic mix of pop, soul and R&B. Winehouse was immersed in music from a young age & grew up listening to a diverse range of music from James Taylor to Sarah Vaughan, owing to her maternal family being professional jazz musicians and her father who sang as a kid.

Life & Career

Winehouse's debut album in 2003‘Frank,’ was a critical success in the UK and was nominated for the Mercury Prize. Her second album Back to Black, won five Grammy Awards tying the then record for the most wins by a female artist in a single night. Fans and critics alike embraced her rugged charm, brash sense of humor, distinctively soulful and jazzy vocals. She earned an entry into the Guinness Book of World Records for ‘Most Grammy Awards Won by a British Female Act’ in 2009. Despite her musical success, Winehouse's health and personal life began to quickly deteriorate. Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on 23 July 2011, at the age of 27.
