Description

Amy Winehouse is the most talked about singer-songwriter of her generation. Her soulful voice has won her critical acclaim, scores of awards and fans from all walks of life, while her turbulent and decadent lifestyle has made her an irresistible target for the popular press. But who is the real Amy Winehouse? This fascinating biography traces her story from her childhood in North London, through to her eventful time at the Sylvia Young Theatre School. It follows her as she takes early steps to fame under the management of Pop Idol guru Simon Fuller and then signs her first deal with Island Records. Her bestselling second album "Back To Black" has earned her nominations for Grammys, earning Amy growing international acclaim.With original interviews and revealing anecdotes included along the way, "Amy Winehouse: She Told Us She Was Trouble" tells the gripping 'behind the scenes' story of this living legend, right up to 2008, when her husband Blake Fielder-Civil faced trial. Chas Newkey-Burden is the first biographer to chart the rise of this extraordinary performer and wild, rebellious character. His compelling portrait is an exclusive look at the life of the country's greatest living singer. She told us she was trouble, but we know that she's so good.
