DUFFY - Sissy (con't)

What can you expect to hear? The title track and album opener, as atmospheric, slow-building and idiosyncratic song as you could hope for, leads into a collection of original material that some might call retro in feel but which Duffy herself prefers to identify as classic. You’ll find arrangements as sparsely effective as those against which Dionne Warwick told her Bacharach & David-wrought tales of heartbreak in the early 1960s. You’ll find lush choruses and swooning hooks (as perfected by the late Miss Springfield and various distinguished others). But this is far from pastiche.

What you’ll find instead is irrefutable evidence of a significant new talent, and one that has developed in splendid isolation, not in reaction to market forces or the input of focus groups and industry experts. Duffy is the real, unspoiled original deal. “People keep asking me where my voice comes from and the fact is I don’t know,” says the brightest new star of 2008. “Why are your eyes the colour they are? It’s no answer at all but it’s the only one I have.”

Update 2009
Her 2008 debut album 'Rockferry' entered the UK Album Chart at number one. It was the best selling album in the United Kingdom in 2008 with 1.68 million copies sold. The album was certified several times Platinum and has sold over 5 million copies worldwide, spawning the hits “Mercy" and “Warwick Avenue". With "Mercy", Duffy became the first Welsh female in 25 years to achieve number-one on the UK Singles Chart. In 2009, she won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album for 'Rockferry,' and she was nominated for two other Grammy awards. She also won 3 Brit Awards including Best Album and an Ivor Novello for “Mercy”.
