When almost seven years have passed since the tragic death of British singer Amy Jade Winehouse (14 th of September of 1983 – 23 th of July 2011), a exclusive given this week to a local London medium has revealed the existence of an unreleased demo of the soul diva, created in 2001 o make record companies fall in love.
My own way is a demo recorded when the singer was only 17 years old
The subject has been released thanks to Gil Cang, producer and composer of the singer, who has declared in the interview that he was giving many laps for a long time, but finally came back to run into the issue and thought “I'll put it there for people to hear it “.
Written with co-composer James McMillan, My own way was recorded in the singer's studio on Hornsey Road two years before the release of her debut album Frank.
Amy revered jazz and was responsible for reflecting the love of this musical style throughout her iconic career. However, he sound of the model that has just revealed is markedly different from her usual interpretations and it leans more toward pop, with a touch of the great R & B of early 2000, and shows us a voice that sounds very young for Winehouse, but tremendously mature for the seventeen years that the interpreter had then.
“It was a particularly serious moment in the pop world. Amy came to see us, opened her mouth and we gasped. And immediately we were struck by her talent: was truly a surprise”, acknowledges Cang, recalling his first encounter with the singer who showed up dressed in “a pair of jeans that had ‘ Sinatra is God’ written in black marker on the back”.Well it does not surprise us because that was Amy Winehouse, the white soul voice as self-destructive as bright and unique, who died at her home in Camden Square in 2011, at 27 years old, and whom we honored from Espai Coriveu with our singing workshop Forever Amy.
We hope you enjoy this unprecedented gem that is a gift for those who admire this legendary artist who, fortunately, will remain forever in our hearts thanks to his musical legacy.
