After breaking out with her 2003 award winning album Frank, Amy Winehouse quickly became a name to watch. Since then, she's released the massively successful follow-up Back to Black, which includes the prophetic single "Rehab" and risen rapidly to become one of the biggest female artists in the world. This title traces her roots back to middle class North London where she grew up in a nice Jewish family, first in Southgate, then in East Finchley where she moved after her parents divorced. It follows her journey to stardom including her expulsion at the Sylvia Young theatre school, her time at the performing arts BRIT school and at a private all girls school in Mill Hill where she was miserable because there were no boys.With original interviews with key figures throughout her career, "Amy Amy Amy" tracks her early singing career, taking in key moments such as being discovered by Simon Fuller's 19 Management Ltd and getting signed to Island Records when she was only 18. It also tracks her meteoric rise as Frank and Back to Black catapulted her to stardom and many awards. It covers her turbulant personal life, taking in the numerous public scandals over her open alcohol and drug use, her tussles with anorexia, bulima and alleged self-harm and her chaotic love life in particular her Sid 'n' nancy style marriage to Blake Civil-Fielder.
