In some respects, the pressures placed on artists are only intensifying: in the four years since Winehouse’s death, sales from recorded music have been slowly dwindling, as the music consumer moves from parting with £10 for an album, to streaming it for free, meaning artists, labels and publishers receive a fraction of the royalties they once did.
“The irony is, when it’s someone like Amy, your records will carry on selling, people will carry on writing about you and, in a weird way, [not performing] makes your value in the long run much higher.”That Winehouse continued on in such a state speaks volumes about the pressures inherent in pursuing a career as a musician, whatever your apparent level of success – pressures that are rarely discussed, but which the film Amy brings into focus.
