In her short career, the talent of Amy Winehouse created a lasting impression on the music world of the 21st century. Recording three critically acclaimed albums from her debut ‘Frank’ in 2003, the Grammy Award winning ‘Back to Black’ in 2007 and the posthumous ‘Lioness’ in 2011 along with the covers of ‘Cupid’ and ‘Valerie’ with Producer Mark Ronson, no one can deny the talent and impact of this often-misunderstood star.

Lioness provide an authentic tribute to the precocious talent featuring TV’s ‘Stars in Their Eyes’ finalist and ‘X Factor’ bootcamp contestant Emma Wright as Amy Winehouse, plus a full backing band to recreate the authentic sound of this heady mix of jazz, soul and pop. With a full stage show showcasing the talent of this songstress will take you on a journey through the emotional roller coaster of her song writing, guaranteed to have you singing and dancing along throughout the performance.

The band are made up of hand-picked experienced musicians, carefully selected to maintain the accuracy to the original performances of the UK’s brightest star that so tragically burned out in 2011. The crafted show focuses on the vocal talent and soul of Amy, unhindered by the dark side to her addictions to alcohol and substances. Lioness provide, without doubt, the most authentic recreation of Amy Winehouse, designed to entertain and deliver the experience of Amy at her very best.

Having recently completed their third UK and Irish headline tour wowing audience covering in excess of 5,000 miles with 24 shows in 3 months closely followed by shows in both Spain and Gibraltar the band are red hot. The response from venues, promoters and audience alike has exceeded all expectations. The Amy Winehouse Experience AKA Lioness have delivered at every level.

“Lioness AKA The Amy Winehouse Experience isn’t just a regular tribute act. From the back to the front there is talented musician upon talented musician. On arrival the very petite (and very pretty) Emma does not look like Amy at all and may leave you wondering who you have booked but as soon as she belts out those first vocals during a sound check you know you’ll be fine! A short while later she reappears with Amy’s trademark swagger and snarl and you wouldn’t believe it’s the same person. The backing singers (and you can’t really call them this) are again vocally superb and the tracks they do during a costume change fit in perfectly with the crowd. Included in the set are all of the well known Amy tracks plus a few that maybe are not as well known – a great balance of ballads and get off the floor and dance it should keep everybody in the crowd happy.

The act are professional and easy to work with. They will provide social media activities to fit in with your event and provide any information / images required. We would definitely look to book again!” – Darren James (King George’s Hall, Blackburn)
