The girl from Nefyn town

Filed by Parris Bambery/March 31, 2009/10.46

You could thank Whoopi Goldberg’s appearance in Sister Act for the early inspiration behind Welsh singer Aimee Ann Duffy’s rise to fame. With over 5·5 million copies of her début album Rockferry being sold worldwide, Duffy hails from the small North Wales town of Nefyn where she started singing in local bands, later appearing on a Welsh Pop Idol-like television show. The doe-eyed blonde beauty has been described as a soul-siren, and compared to the likes of Dusty Springfield and Lulu.
   So for those Duffy admirers out there, you’ll be glad to know she has brought her distinctive, lounging voice to New Zealand with three shows throughout the country starting with a performance tonight at Vector Arena in Auckland, Wellington on April 1 at the TSB Bank Arena, and in Christchurch on April 2 at the Christchurch Town Hall.
