Dionne Bromfield has been making rounds over the years as a singer, collaborating with acts such as: Diggy Simmons, Mz Bratt, Lil Twist, and Tinchy Stryder, to name a few.
She has a soulful, vintage vibe to her and her sound has definitely matured over the years. She started making noise around the young age of 13. Now, at 19, Bromfield has had plenty of time to blossom as an artist. Put this in perspective: she’s been trained by a legend of our era. Bromfield is Amy Winehouse‘s goddaughter and protégé. You can hear Amy’s influence in her tone, but she definitely has her own unique sound.
The ballad, Black Butterfly, is a soulful tune that has you following her every note. When people think of Amy, this song makes a beautiful tribute by the right person, her godbaby. It was also co-written with hit-makers, Sia (Chandelier, Titanium, Rihanna – Diamond, etc.) and Chris Braide (Christina Aguilera, Lana Del Rey, etc.).
“There was a black butterfly that flew in at Amy’s funeral and it landed on Kelly Osbourne’s shoulder. It stayed there for the whole service, then flew out as soon as the service had finished. It’s probably the best song I’ve ever written, and I was crying when I recorded it.” (Source: Amy Winehouse Forever)
I don’t know how true this statement is, but if it’s true, then that’s beautiful.
This tribute allows the soul of Amy Winehouse to rest in peace…
