Amy winehouse's Debut album represents her world and her soul; a collision between 21st century london's urban soundscapes, the great jazz voices of the last century, and the emotional experiences of a 19-year old Jewish girl with alot to say. Released in 2003, Frank, the Ivor Novello nominated debut by North London’s Amy Winehouse, was also nominated for two Brits Awards and short-listed for the Mercury Music Prize.
The sound of her voice is the sound of Chicago in the '40s- you can picture Amy performing in the smoky back room of an after hours Jazz club, but the beats and the lyrics are unmistakeably the product of a life spent in the urban sprawl; hip hop, nu-soul, messy break-ups and streetwise sass. Amy's music is fresh, engaging and irresistible; subtle and charming, funny and so smooth that half her wit passes you by on the first listen. Named after her pet dog, and featuring the singles "Stronger Than Me", "Take The Box", "In My Bed" and "…Pumps", it was described by Billboard as “stellar”, eventually going double platinum in the UK alone. In 2007 it re-entered the charts in the wake of the phenomenal success of her sophomore release, the five times Grammy Award winning chart-topper, Back To Black.
