Amy Winehouse has been hailed by Newsweek Magazine as a cross between jazz legend Billie Holiday and hip hop and R&B lovely Lauryn Hill. The British soul singer Amy Winehouse’s U.S. debut, Back To Black (Universal Republic Records) hits stores this Tuesday, March 13, amid a flurry of accolades, radio and TV buzz unprecedented in recent years for a young siren. Back to Black has already reached #1 in England and garnered the 23 year old Amy Winehouse a Brit Award for Best British Female Solo Artist.

 

Amy Winehouse’s brassy mix of emotive vocals tinged with 60’s girl-group stylings, sly funk, and anguished jazz, sparked the New York Daily News to crown Back To Black a “marvelous debut that would do Etta James proud” while New Yorker Magazine called her “a fierce English performer whose voice combines the smoky depths of a jazz chanteuse with the heated passion of a soul singer,” and Spin Magazine affirming “there’s never been A British star quite like her.”  R&B and Modern Rock radio have already embraced songs “Rehab” and “You Know I’m No Good” while Winehouse videos are quickly becoming a mainstay at VH1 and MTV. 

 

Helmed by street-smart production stalwarts Mark Ronson (Christina Aguilera) and Salaam Remi (Fugees), Back To Black smolders with a bristling fusion of old school doo-wop/soul inflected uprisings, (the charismatic singer/songwriter wrote or co-wrote all of the songs on the album) brewing instant classics such as the Shirley Ellis influenced “Rehab,” the Supremes tinged title song “Back To Black,” the aching “Wake Up Alone,” and the album’s closer, “Addicted.”

 

Winehouse is scheduled to appear on The Late Show With David Letterman on March12, while getting ready for a slew of much anticipated live shows, including New York City’s The Bowery Ballroom on March 13, Los Angeles’ the Roxy on March 19, and Spaceland in LA on March 20.  The singer will also be appearing at the upcoming South by Southwest Festival in Austin, TX, on March 15, and the Coachella Music & Arts Festival in Indio, CA, on April 27.
