Born and raised in Nefyn, North Wales, Duffy
has a vocal ability that towers above expectation. Evocative of the music that raised her, yet thoroughly modern, her soulful sound combines a longing, scratchy blues feel with the rustic sound of modern life.
She began songwriting at the age of 10, influenced by Doris Duke
, Bettye Swann
, Scott Walker
and Richard Hawley
. She has spent the past two years creating the album that would mark her arrival: Rockferry
is slated for a May 13th US release.
