Duffy

Welsh singer-songwriter

Amiee Ann Duffy (born 23 June 1984), usually known as just Duffy, is a Welsh singer, songwriter and actress from Bangor, Gwynedd. Her first album, Rockferry, sold more than 6.5 million copies.[1] Rockferry, and a song from the album, "Mercy", both reached number one on the UK music charts.[2] Her second album did not sell very well, with only 200,000 sold in the UK.[3] In 2009 she made an advertisement for Diet Coke. The ad caused problems because she is shown riding a bicycle at night without a helmet or lights.[4] Journalist Luke Lewis described the ad as "...blank, sterile and mildly unsettling."[5]
