Her 2008 debut album Rockferry entered the UK Album Chart at number one. It was the best selling album in the United Kingdom in 2008 and has sold over 5.5 million copies worldwide. In 2009 she won three BRIT Awards, British Breakthrough, Best Female Solo and Best British Album. She also won a Grammy Award in the category Best Pop Vocal Album for Rockferry, and she was nominated for two other Grammy awards.

She grew up speaking Welsh as her mother tongue. Her parents divorced when she was ten and she moved to Pembrokeshire with her mother and sisters. She dropped her first name, calling herself Duffy professionally and personally. Duffy's introduction to soul music and inspiration to get into the music industry occurred while watching Whoopi Goldberg's performance in the movie Sister Act. It is known that Duffy watched her father's videotapes of the 1960s television rock show Ready Steady Go! – she says she grew up without a record collection of her own. Duffy began singing at age six and carried around a notebook which she filled with scribbled lyrics. She was later asked to leave her school choir because her voice was "too big" and she "didn't fit in." In 1998 (aged thirteen), Duffy was briefly put in a police safe house when authorities uncovered a plot by her stepfather's ex-wife to pay a hitman £3000 to kill her stepfather, identified as Philip Smith. Smith's ex-wife, Dawn Watson, was sentenced to a 3½ year jail term for soliciting to murder. "I was so terrified. I felt so ill", Duffy recounted in 2008, as reported by the NME magazine and The Sun. A 1998 article in the Daily Mirror, another British tabloid, quotes a man identified as Philip Smith describing similar circumstances, though the stepdaughter's name is spelled Aimy — not Aimée — and the surname Duffy is not mentioned. Duffy describes living in the safe house as a dog eat dog, claustrophobic and isolating experience. At age fifteen she ran away back to her father's house in Nefyn. Duffy said in retrospect, "It was a horrendous thing to do". Her mother and her sisters did not speak to her for about a year afterwards. Duffy has admitted to smoking "not just cigarettes" during her teenage years, at a time when she was "quite mischievous" and always looking for trouble. She says that these activities with friends occurred as a result of boredom. Duffy cites the effects of her stepfather's ex-wife's alcoholism as well as her desire not to become a "celebrity" as reasons she does not use drugs or alcohol currently.  Early career After finishing her GCSEs in Pembrokeshire, Duffy returned to Nefyn when she was fifteen, and started singing in various local bands. She then spent a year working in Switzerland, collaborating with the writer-producer Soren Mounir under the name Soulego. Duffy returned to Wales in 2003 and was invited to appear on Wawffactor, a Welsh television show on S4C, which has been compared to Pop Idol. She was expected to win, but came second to winner Lisa Pedrig. Duffy claims that she was conned into the appearance; she later called it "the unhappiest time in my life." In her teens Duffy wanted (and expected) to be a world famous pop star, and as such felt that she let others use her "as a vehicle for their vision not mine." At age eighteen, thinking her dreams were not going to come true, she "became almost a quite withdrawn singer". After a re-evaluation she decided to just make music for no other purposes than her own fulfilment. Duffy was elected president of the Students' union at Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor in Pwllheli, North Wales before transferring to the University of Chester in England. She was advised by a lecturer to "Go on the dole, love, and become a singer". She also built up a following at Alexander's, a local jazz and blues club, performing with guitarist David Burton from the band The Invisible Wires. In 2004 she recorded a three-song Welsh EP, written and produced by Paul Eastham of international celtic rock band "Coast". Simply titled Aimée Duffy, the 3 tracks were "Dim
Dealltwriaeth" (No Understanding), "Hedfan Angel (Fly Angel)", and "Cariad Dwi'n Unig (Lover, I'm Lonely)". She also appeared on two tracks on the album See You in the Morning by Mint Royale while working as a waitress in a fishery. Owen Powell of Catatonia and Richard J. Parfitt of Newport band 60ft Dolls, introduced Duffy in August 2004 to Jeannette Lee, former Public Image Ltd. member turned music manager and part-owner of Rough Trade Records. Lee moved Duffy to Crouch End in London, and orchestrated a meeting between Duffy and Suede's ex-guitar player Bernard Butler. After Butler had given Duffy a soul music "education" by downloading tracks on to her iPod that she could listen to while around London or travelling back to Wales, the pair co-wrote with her and helped create a new retro sound. The tracks included Al Green, Bettye Swann, Ann Peebles, Beyoncé, Doris Duke, Scott Walker, Phil Spector and Burt Bacharach. Duffy was quoted as saying Bettye Swann "is one of my biggest inspirations" particularly her song Cover Me because "it marks the time I got interested in physical contact. I was 19, and here was a woman singing "Cover me, spread your precious love all over me". It's very tender, but it's also, hilariously, quite crude".  Breakthrough Duffy was contracted to A&M Records on 23 November 2007. She performed on the BBC Two television show Later with Jools Holland, which resulted in a second appearance on the related New Year's Eve show Hootenanny, on which, among other things, she performed with soul legend Eddie Floyd. On 22 February 2008, she appeared on Later with Jools Holland for a third time and performed "Rockferry", "Mercy", and "Stepping Stone". She also appeared on the BBC Two television programme The Culture Show on 23 February 2008 and performed "Mercy". In January 2008, she came second to Adele in the annual BBC News Online poll of industry experts Sound of 2008, for acts to emerge in the coming year. In Wales, she seems set to become the "pop" equivalent of mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins. A number of commentators have remarked on her unaffected personality and natural charm. In February 2008 her Welsh language EP (Aimée Duffy), recorded four years earlier, reached the top of the Welsh C2 chart.  Rockferry The album was named after Rock Ferry in the Wirral where Duffy's grandmother lives. Logo used by Duffy (2008-present)Butler and his musical partner David McAlmont, and a number of other musicians formed the backbone of Duffy's band for her debut album entitled Rockferry, which was released on Polydor Records on 3 March 2008. The black and white album art and video for the title track were shot by directors Luke Seomore and Joseph Bull, on and around the Ffestiniog Railway in Porthmadog, which was renamed 'Rockferry' for the occasion. According to Duffy, "The album took nearly four years to make. We had to hire cheap, tiny studios and sometimes there would be three-week periods between writing and recording." Bernard Butler, who was not initially paid, produced four songs for the album, including the single, "Rockferry". The singles "Mercy" and "Stepping Stone", were co-written & produced by Steve Booker, and the second single "Warwick Avenue", by Jimmy Hogarth and Eg White. Duffy released the debut limited edition single "Rockferry" in November 2007 followed by the Steve Booker co-written & produced single, "Mercy", which went straight to number one. Mercy was the last song written for the album. The single was physically released on 25 February 2008. She has revealed that both "Mercy" and "Stepping Stone" are autobiographical; "Mercy" is about "sexual liberty" and "not doing something somebody else wants you to do", and "Stepping Stone" is about not expressing her feelings to a person she fell in love with. Warwick Avenue was the second single released from the album. The song occurred when Duffy then 19 years old was familiarizing herself with the London Underground and accidently found herself at the Warwick Avenue station. The following day the song "just sort of came out". At first the video for the song was meant to be an elaborate production but ended up a tearful head shot in a taxi cab with Duffy's mascara smudgeing. Duffy has said "That's as close as I'm ever going to get to doing a performance that's real in a video." By May, "Mercy" was a staple on VH1 and a hot Adult Contemporary radio hit and had been featured in the season finale of the American television medical drama Grey's Anatomy as well as the soundtrack album for Sex and the City: The Movie. A remix of "Mercy", featuring rap artist The Game, was released on 10 May. On 13 May Rockferry was released in the United States to positive reviews. Because of its cheap production values the album is reaping Duffy substantial financial benefits. Despite her album's success in the United States Duffy was quoted as saying “I don’t like how big American stars consider themselves an exception from humanity". In November 2008, the single Rain On Your Parade was released. The song was co-written & produced by Steve Booker. The song was first released on download sales only on 10 November 2008 before being released physically on 17 November 2008. Duffy describes this song as "a big, disco-y dance song". The song entered the UK Singles Chart at number twenty-two before rising to a peak of fifteen the following week. The track was included on the deluxe edition of Rockferry. At the 2008 MOJO Awards, Duffy won the "Song of the Year" award for "Mercy" and was nominated also for "Album of the Year" and "Breakthrough Act". These three nominations were the largest number of nominations for any one act. She also received a 2008 Q Award in the category of Breakthrough Act, a nomination for the Q category of Best Track for "Mercy", a Music of Black Origin Award nomination for Best UK Female. At the MTV Europe Music Awards, she received three nominations in the categories of Album of the Year,Most Addictive Track, and New Act. She performed at the EMA show. At the 51st Grammy Awards held in February 2009, Duffy won a Grammy Award in the category of Best Pop Vocal Album for Rockferry. Earlier she had been nominated for awards in the categories of Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for her single "Mercy". Duffy equalled Coldplay with four 2009 Brit Awards nominations. She eventually won three awards, including Best Album for Rockferry, one behind the record held by Blur for the most won in one night. "I cannot tell you what this means after five years of hard work," said the singer. At the awards ceremony she performed "Warwick Avenue". Songwriter Bernard Butler gained an award for his work on the Rockferry album. In 2009 Rain On Your Parade became the first song by Duffy to be played on Australian radio.  Sales  United Kingdom In February 2008 Duffy's EP Aimée Duffy reached the number 1 spot on Siart C2. When the single "Mercy" hit the top of the charts in February 2008 Duffy became the first Welsh female to achieve a number one pop single in the past 25 years to ever top the UK Singles Chart. . It remained at number one for five weeks. The second single from the album, "Warwick Avenue" was at the number 3 position on the UK Singles Chart. The title track "Rockferry" peaked at number 45. The single Rain on Your Parade debuted at number twenty-two on 10 November and rose to a peak of number fifteen the following week. With a total of 1.685m physical and digital sales, Rockferry was the best selling album in the United Kingdom in 2008. "Mercy" was the third best selling single for the year with over 500,000 copies sold. As of 26 December, 2008 in its 43rd week on the charts Rockferry had risen to the number 6 position from number 10 the previous week. The week following her 3 Brit Award victories in February 2009 the album rose from number 19 position to number 4.  United States In the United States, the album peaked at the number 4 on the Billboard 200. The singles "Mercy" and "Warwick Avenue" peaked at number 27 and 96 respectively. By November 2008 500,000 copies of Rockferry had been sold and had been certified Gold by the RIAA. In the first quarter of 2009 Rockferry sold 107,000 copies ranking it 13th among international artists and 73rd overall.

Rockferry was the world's fourth bestselling album in 2008. By March 2009 the album had sold nearly 6m copies.  Comparisons with others Under the sub-title, "The New Amys", Adam Thompson wrote in The Times on 30 December 2007 that "Duffy, Gabriella Cilmi and Adele lead the charge to be the next Winehouse. First sightings seem to indicate that they are all bright-eyed innocents with bags of talent — a familiar starting point, no?" Duffy herself dislikes being referred to as "the new Dusty Springfield". She said at first she did not understand the comparisons to Springfield and believes the comparisons with others or putting her in a movement is "a gimmick" and noted that "nobody is replaceable". Singer-songwriter Alison Goldfrapp said while Duffy has a great voice, she was trained to sound essentially like Amy Winehouse as part of a business plan, mistakenly believing that Duffy had attended the Brit School. Noel Gallagher of Oasis has a similar perspective. By 2009 people had stopped referring to Duffy as the "New Amy" or "New Dusty" a prospect that is a "bit more frightening because before I had certain references but now it's just me on my own". British singer Estelle said that she does not agree with those who describe Duffy and Adele as soul singers but that she is happy that they have been successful. In North America, Duffy is seen as part of a recent wave of British singers or "British invaders" consisting of females with a unique take on writing and performing songs. Motown has been seen as an influence in this wave. On 1 February 2009 The Times Encyclopedia of modern music named her album Rockferry an "Essential" Blue Eyed Soul recording. Albums by Amy Winehouse and Adele were also named as essential Blue Eyed Soul recordings in the "recent" category.  Touring Her first American performances took place at the SXSW conference, and the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was her first festival gig. The Coachella performance started off with sound problems but she "delighted the crowd with 'Rockferry', 'Serious', 'Warwick Avenue' and 'Mercy'." To coincide with the release of Rockferry Duffy performed at the Apollo Theater in New York City Duffy commented "Every time I'm in America, I feel there's some atmosphere -- I can't put my finger on it -- but there's some excitement that exists nowhere else. And I think it's because soul music, black music, is basically what started pop music". Duffy has played a number of festivals in Europe, including the Vieilles Charrues Festival in France, the Hove Festival in Norway the Accelerator Festival in Sweden, Glastonbury and Evolution Festival's in England, the Electric Picnic festival in Ireland, Connect Festival in Scotland on Sunday 31 August, Wakestock in her native Wales, the V Festival on 16 August and the Roskilde Festival in Denmark. In North America she has performed at Lollapalooza on 1 August in Chicago and the All Points West Music and Arts Festival at Liberty State Park, on the 8 August. She played the Virgin Mobile Festival at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore on 10 August. On 3 September Duffy played an intimate club gig and then answered questions at New York's China Club. On television, Duffy performed on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, The Late Show With David Letterman, Saturday Night Live, and Austin City Limits. Her 45 minute concert at an East End of London church was aired on BBC1 on 12 October. During the show she performed a new song "Rain on Your Parade". On the 28 October Duffy sang "Stepping Stone" on The View. The singer became star struck when she was interviewed by co-host Whoopi Goldberg. Duffy played a fourteen-city North American tour. Plans had called for her to open for Coldplay on six of the dates. A performance at the Quicken Loans Arena left The Cleveland Leader to wonder why Duffy was not the headlining act. Duffy is using the tour to test new songs including "Rain On Your Parade" and "Fool For You". Duffy accidentally set the entire left side of her hair on fire in a Cleveland dressing room. The incident occurred when after blowing out a candle that was melting she bent down not realizing the candle was still lit. The incident caused her more embarrassment than harm. At New York's Webster Hall, Duffy apologized to the audience after briefly bursting in to tears. Duffy explained this happens in one out of every 15 of her shows when she feels exposed for reasons she does not understand. Duffy toured the United Kingdom and Ireland during November and December 2008. She performed at the Live In London concert at the O2 Arena on 26 November. Duffy was quoted in a British tabloid as saying she is proud to represent the British Music Scene abroad and to explain that Great Britain encompasses more than London. In December 2008, Duffy was among several singers who performed for Prince Charles, and his wife Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall, at the London Palladium for the 80th anniversary Royal Variety Performance. On 20 December she performed on the final of the BBC television show Strictly Come Dancing and on the 2008 editions of Jools Holland's New Year's Eve Show and the Top of The Pops Christmas special. In February 2009 Duffy performed on United States talk shows Rachael Ray, The Tonight Show With Jay Leno as well as Austin City Limits and the 2009 Brit Awards. Duffy performed at a BBC sponsored Children in Need benefit concert, singing her new single Rain on your parade and Mercy. On 2 April Duffy performed at the V Festival in Melbourne, Australia.  Future projects As of August 2008, Duffy with several other artists were working on the soundtrack to an upcoming independent film about the British northern soul scene of the early 1970s entitled Souled Out. According to Duffy's website the singer will tour Japan in 2009. Duffy has been confirmed to perform at the SOS 4.8 48 hour Music Festival on 1 May. Duffy plans to begin work on her second album later in 2009.  Endorsements  Adverts In August 2008 it was reported that Duffy will appear in a advertisement in Fashion Rocks Magazine for Nivea endorsing their new line of skin care and body care products. Duffy has been named the "star" of a multi-million pound European Diet Coke advertising campaign, which was launched on ITV immediately following the Brit Awards on 18 February, 2009. Duffy, who is a heavy drinker of the product, is scheduled to appear in a series of 30 and 60 second adverts with other young women. The ad was criticised for setting a bad example to young people because she is seen riding a racing bicycle at night, without lights or reflectors - acts which are unlawful. In the advert she sings the classic song I've Gotta Be Me.  Charity Duffy recorded a cover of Paul McCartney's James Bond theme song "Live and Let Die". It was used on the War Child charity album entitled Heroes, which is was released on 16 February 2009. McCartney, who hand picked Duffy to do the cover in the Spring of 2008, said that Duffy's version "is great - I was really impressed". Ben Knowles, director of the project, described Duffy's cover as a "really stripped bare, northern soul version".  Illegal music downloads Duffy says that she does not mind people illegally downloading her music because she believes most people who do are kids who cannot afford the CDs and will buy them when they get older.  Personal life  Johnny Rotten incident Duffy claimed that at the Mojo Awards show in June 2008, Sex Pistols lead singer John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten) heckled her. According to Duffy, when she went to make peace with him, "I walked past him, said 'Hi, you all right?', and next thing I was literally slammed against the wall, pinned by his arm at my throat. He called me a c***. The violence was awful". According to Lydon, "I was doing an interview and she came up behind me - I didn't see anything". He claimed she was a "young girl who made the mistake of trying to jump on my back". He said he hadn't realised who Duffy was, saying: "Oh, she got an award? I quite like her." Although she left upset, Duffy later blamed herself for what happened.  Dealing with fame In September 2008, Duffy mentioned that she was "on the borderline of a nervous breakdown" because of the pressure that fame has brought her. She also said that she had considered becoming a recluse, but eventually decided against the idea for the sake of her fans. Although acknowledging that most people do mean well, she finds it "scary" when people recognize her in the street, and has been fearful of her image possibly changing the person she truly is.  "Duffydil" flower It was announced that Duffy has had a special variant of Daffodil (a flower traditionally associated with Wales) named after her, called the "Duffydil". She picked the variant she wanted to be named after her from a selection grown by the Really Welsh Trading Company. Duffy said of this, "The Duffydil, brilliant! Maybe now I can forgive myself for stealing them from people's gardens!". The flower will be revealed at the RHS show in Cardiff, April 2009.
