Amy Winehouse was an English singer and songwriter born 1983 at Enfield, London. She was known for her eclectic mix of Soul, R&B and Jazz styles. A member of the National Youth Jazz Orchestra during her youth, Winehouse signed to Simon Fuller's 19 Management in 2002 and soon recorded a number of songs before signing a publishing deal with EMI. Working with producer Salaam Remi, Winehouse's 2003 debut album Frank was a critical success and was nominated for the UK's Mercury Prize. Her follow-up album, Back to Black (2006) went on to become an international success and one of the best selling albums in UK history. At the 2007 Brit Awards it was nominated for British Album of the Year, and she received the award for British Female Solo Artist. Winehouse was plagued by drug and alcohol addiction. She died of alcohol poisoning on 23 July 2011, at the age of 27. A documentary film, Amy (2015), directed by Asif Kapadia was released on 3 July 2015. The film covers Winehouse's life, her relationships, her struggles with substance abuse both before and after her career blossomed, and which eventually caused her death.
