The Gabeyard Shift – Amy Winehouse

amywinehouse-4.24.20123

This week was the first proper evening / morning of The Gabeyard Shift for 2016.

Last week, of course, we were dealing with the shocking and sudden loss of David Bowie so those couple of hours were spent honouring him.

This time around however it was all about Amy Winehouse. I finally got around to seeing the documentary about her that came out last year titled ‘Amy‘. While I already admired her as an artist and appreciated her incredible vocal talent, I certainly wasn’t aware of her musicianship when it came to guitar and her jazz knowledge.

She was also obviously as artist that preferred spending time crafting songs and recording in the studio than being on stage and on tour. It’s a beautifully made film that really shows admiration for her musical talents.  The Gabeyard Shift focused on playing some of the music that influenced her sound and what helped her become such an incredible songwriter.
