Description Duffy is, without a doubt, one of the most successful musicians of the past decade. Her debut album Rockferry became Britain’s best-selling album in 2008, earning her a Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album. Despite her fame, Duffy’s approach to performing remains focussed on the music itself. She has revealed that at times she has struggled with the pressures of celebrity and was reported to be on the verge of a nervous breakdown in 2008. However, she recovered in time to collect a host of awards, including a Grammy and three Brit Awards. With her music central to the soundtrack of the last few years, Duffy has earned a reputation as one of Britain’s greatest contributors to popular music in recent times.
