Amy Winehouse...Back to Black

This woman can write and sing.

I think she is a soulful cross between Sheryl Crow and Macy Gray. Amy is a great songwriter who gets the everyman/every woman kind of thing that Sheryl has going on. Amy also has a smooth bluesy voice like Macy's that can "git rough" if it needs to.

Her songs are about unrequited love and cheatin', and the pain of heartbreak. The title tune "Back to Black" is a testimony to lost love. "Tears Dry on Their Own" is an anthem to starting over.

She is one of the best singer/songwriters I have heard in a long while.

By following the link above you can listen to some of her album and get the flavor of it.
