New Music: India Shan

London-based singer-songwriter India Shan showcases some of her home town’s finest new music through the release of melodic new single ‘Don’t Wanna’.

Dreamy and delicate in tone, the song delivers a style of production that infuses R&B with hints of electronica, creating a sound that feels fresh and distinctive yet soulful and moving.

“The song kinda wrote itself, and quickly too. It’s about the patterns in a relationship that aren’t necessarily healthy – wanting to try and make things work but the realisation that it’s not a functional place to be. I think that’s what defines a toxic relationship, when you’re fully aware it’s not right but you struggle to leave because the ups and downs are essentially addictive.” 

With mentorship by London’s iconic Roundhouse, the Amy Winehouse Foundation and acclaimed producer Raf Riley, 2022 may well be Shan’s biggest year yet.

Has it really been ten years since Amy released Back To Black?

amy-winehouse-back-to-black-album-cover

On the 27th October 2006 Amy Winehouse released ‘Back to Black’. I still remember going to the album launch at London’s Bloomsbury Ballroom with a friend who had never heard of her back then and who I had to beg to join me so I wouldn’t go alone.

Anyway… This might excite you if you happen to love Amy as much as I do while also being far more musically gifted than me…

THE AMY WINEHOUSE FOUNDATION INVITE YOU TO CREATE YOUR OWN VERSION OF A CLASSIC AMY WINEHOUSE TRACK FROM HER SEMINAL BACK TO BLACK ALBUM, TO CELEBRATE THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF IT’S RELEASE.

Nas announces London show with ticket proceeds going towards Amy Winehouse Foundation

Nas and Amy Winehouse seemed to have an unusual partnership that worked pretty well, so it’s not surprising that he will give ticket proceeds from his March 19th 2013 show at the O2 Arena to the Amy Winehouse Foundation. Support from Meek Mill. Nice.
