We all know the tragic story of Amy Winehouse… Drug & alcohol abuse dominated her career and made headlines around the world. Like many artists that struggle with drugs, Amy took solace in her music. She was a creative powerhouse and a once in a generation talent.

Winehouse died on the 23rd July 2011 at the age of 27.  In her last interview recorded during a session with legendary vocalist Tony Bennett, Winehouse addresses her love for music;

“I’m not a natural born performer. I’m a natural singer, but I’m quite shy, really,” she said.

“You know what it’s like? I don’t mean to be sentimental or soppy but it’s a little bit like being in love, when you can’t eat, you’re restless, it’s like that.

“But then the minute you go on stage, everything’s OK. The minute you start singing.”

Her untimely death sent shockwaves though the music industry and although we have 2008’s grammy award winning album “Back In Black”  You can’t help imagine the body of work which could have been.
