Duffy Bio

Aimee Ann Duffy (born 23 June 1984 in Bangor, Gwynedd), known professionally as Duffy, is a Welsh singer-songwriter. In 2008 she debuted at number one on the UK Album Charts with her album Rockferry, so far selling over 4 million copies worldwide. Duffy is the first Welsh female to achieve a number one pop single in the past 25 years with her second single "Mercy".

Raised in Nefyn on the Ll?n Peninsula in North Wales, with her twin sister, Katy Ann, and older sister Kelly, Aimée Duffy 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 at the age of nineteen, 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.
