Duffy, The Next Great Export From The UK?

You've undoubtedly been seeing the name Duffy popping up a lot lately. She is the latest in a long and successful line of female singers from the UK. Comparable to Amy Winehouse in style, the Motown/Stax influences are unmistakable, though not a carbon copy by any means. The BBC ranked her second on their Sound of 2008: The Top 10 list and she also earned a coveted spot Spin's 2008 Who's Next list. Her debut album, Rockferry, is due out March 3 in the UK and two months later on May 6 in the US.

Stream her first single, "Mercy."
