Amy Winehouse Biography

Able to create distinguishable music which is perceived to be the perfect fusion of traditional and modern influences, Amy Jade Winehouse was born to a taxi-driving father named Mitchell and pharmacist mother named Janis on September 14, 1983 in Camden, London, England. She spent most her early years in the suburb of Southgate, North London where she attended Ashmole School. The niece of professional jazz musicians from her mother's side, music surely was never an alien thing to the girl. She grew up listening to a diverse tunes ranging from Sarah Vaughn to Salt-N-Pepa. At age ten, she even confidently formed a short-lived amateur rap group named Sweet 'n' Sour in which she used the latter moniker during the troupe's existence.

Though her abundant love for music was certainly unquestionable at that time, Amy, however, still gave herself a chance to try for another field as she later entered the Sylvia Young Theatre School in Marylebone by age twelve. Nevertheless, the classes were unable to capture her interest and within the following year, she was expelled for "not applying herself", leading her to attend Britain's only free performing arts and technology institution the BRIT School. The movement thankfully proved well on the teen as she could further hone her musical skills to afterwards begin making her way in music scene through Sunday morning gigs and Youth Jazz Orchestra.
