Biography

Welsh singer, songwriter and occasional actress.

Her career began when she recorded and released her debut EP, Aimée Duffy, in 2004. Her 2008 debut album, Rockferry, was the best-selling album in the United Kingdom in 2008 with 1.68 million copies sold. The album was certified several times Platinum and sold over 7 million copies worldwide, spawning the hits "Mercy" and "Warwick Avenue".

In 2009, Duffy won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album for Rockferry, and she was nominated for two other Grammys at the 51st Grammy Awards. In 2009, she won three Brit Awards: British Breakthrough, Best British Female and Best British Album.

In 2010, she completed recording of her second album Endlessly that was released on 29 November and made her acting debut in the film Patagonia. In February 2011, Duffy announced she would take an extended hiatus from music before beginning work on her third album.

Duffy dated Cheshire-born Mark Durston for over five years until November 2006. Duffy lived in Abersoch with him.

In September 2008, Duffy said that she was "on the borderline of a nervous breakdown" because of the pressure that fame had brought her. She 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 spoke of finding it "scary" when people recognised her in the street, and was fearful of her image possibly changing the person she truly is.

Duffy dated Welsh international rugby star Mike Phillips from September 2009 to May 2011.

On 25 February 2020, in a post on her official Instagram account, Duffy said that her extended hiatus was due to her having been "raped and drugged and held captive for some days". Following this she did not want to use her music to sing about her pain, she said.
