Jake Brown will take you deep into Amy Winehouse's world of record deals, contracts, touring, bands, men, tabloids, drugs and alcohol. Amy Jade Winehouse was born on September 14th, 1983 in the middle-class London suburb of Southgate to parents Mitch and Janice, who worked as a cab driver and pharmacist respectively. She died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011, at the young age of twenty seven years old. Her album Back to Black subsequently became the UK's best selling album of the 21st century in 2012.
Amy's introduction to her father's love for jazz would prove in time to be the pivotal stylistic influence in the course of shaping her broader musical roots as both a singer and songwriter. "I taught Amy to sing when she was a baby, like all parents sing to their children, I taught her how to sing…we loved singing together. We loved talking about music." Along with her father, the singer would additionally credit her brother Alex with helping put her in touch with her first exposure to playing, "my brother taught himself guitar, so I took an inspiration for teaching myself from him, and he showed me a couple of things." Though she began fiddling around on the guitar, Winehouse's true calling would come with a unique vocal gift that instantly caught the ear of everyone from the first time they ever heard it. Mitch said, "I remember her being nine and ten and just starting out and realized she had a very powerful voice." Not surprisingly, it was within her early explorations of her talent that Amy would find refuge, "I was singing mostly a lot of blues and jazz when I was young, a teenager. That's when you're really messed up about your life.

"It's just mad, your life, you're up and down, like nobody's business." It was here during this early period in her evolution as an R&B singer that Amy would first make the all-important connection between the fundamental importance of feeling what she was singing on a personal level, so that she could then succeed in communicating that feeling in the embodiment of her physical vocal performance. An essential lesson she summed up with, "you have to live certain things, to be able to then sing about them."
