This weekend, while visiting my family in Maryland, the sad news came out that Amy Winehouse was found dead at 27. Talented but troubled, it's a sad but unfortunately not surprising loss. Amy helped usher in a 60's retro sound trend followed by Duffy, Adele and many others. Her "Back to Black" was the album of 2007 due to the cultural need for fresh music featuring a real singer.
After winning five Grammy's and topping multiple top 10 lists, the pressure was on to follow up with an equally smashing record. We will never see that fulfilled (although you know demos and unfinished tracks will be leaked) and that is a loss for lovers of music indeed.
We'll miss you, Amy.
