Duffy in Auckland, Wellington, Christcurch

What do you get when raw talent meets youth & beauty?

The unique sound and style of a young twenty-ish Welsh songstress by the name of Amy Duffy, or just plain Duffy as the world is coming to know and love her.

Blessed with a striking vocal range and an undeniable presence, this pocket-sized Welsh diva is bringing her phenomenal, distinctive voice and band to New Zealand in March/April 2009 for 3 very special shows.

Duffy first seeped into our consciousness earlier this year with the title track to the classic retro-soul influenced album “Rockferry”which achieved 1 million album sales in 6 short weeks after release and reaching # 1 in 11 countries.

Written and recorded with the help of former Suede guitarist Bernard Butler,
“Rockferry” also boasts the rhythmic grace of “Mercy” and the emotionally soulful ballad, “Warwick Avenue”, and has already exceeded double platinum sales in New Zealand, still a top 5 album after 6months on the national chart.

Blue-eyed soul does not come any better than this.
