Industry insiders and media pundits are unanimously predicting massive chart success for a hotly tipped new female singer whose name temporarily eludes us, but she does sound rather like that Amy Winehouse we think.
The hugely talented but incidently really rather attractive singer in her early twenties has been singing since the age of fifteen. She was snapped up by Universal Music shortly after record company executives learned that the release date of the follow up to Back in Black has been delayed by another six months.
“Erm, that new singer we were just talking about really is a exciting new talent" said Rory Lyle, head of PR at Universal. “she writes all her own songs and only drinks in moderation thank God. We’re thrilled at the public reaction to her so far: when she played Glastonbury, loads of fit girls started getting up onto their boyfriends’ shoulders and waving their arms around in the air; that’s not happened since James Blunt!”
The singer, who claims her musical influences are “all those classic sixties singers like Dusty Springfield and, er...” finally releases her first single “Prefab” next week, having been played within an inch of its life for three months solid on Radio 2. The album “Ain’t no Saint” is due in supermarkets at the end of the month.
“We’re so proud to have signed … oh crap, what is her name - that slightly mediteranean-looking one with the bobbed haircut - on our label.” beamed Rory “she is hugely talented and undoubtedly has a long career ahead of her – judging by current progress on that frikkin’ Winehouse album anyway...”
