ICONATHON: Amy Winehouse Edition

Tears Dry On Their Own: An Amy Winehouse Experience

Starring Danielle Tyler as AMY

Amy Winehouse was a young ground breaking singer/ songwriter from North London. Her 2008 album “Back To Black” earned her five Grammy Awards and she was the first British female to win three of “the big four awards” -Best New Artist, Record of The Year and Song of The Year. Winehouse was known for her deep expressive vocals with an eclectic mix of styles including rhythm and blues, jazz and neo-soul. Her major influences ranged from Sarah Vaughan to Ronnie Spector, but the edgy, unapologetic flare she brought to the table is what made her an instant legend adored by fans all over the world. On July 23, 2011 Amy Winehouse tragically lost her battle with addiction making her a member of the infamous “27 Club.” This is where her legacy remains; amongst the many other young musical icons who left this earth too soon.

In Damn The Light’s tribute to Amy Winehouse we explore her story through interviews, personal accounts, multi-media and her incomparable song catalogue. Complete with a top-notch band and her signature motown-esque horn section, Damn the Light once again delivers you an authentic sound and experience like no other.
