Dionne Bromfield inspired by her diary
Amy Winehouse taught Dionne Bromfield how to write songs from her diary.
'Yeah Right' hitmaker Dionne didn't initially understand why her godmother - famous for her confessional, personal lyrics - told her to keep notes on what she did week to week, but when it all made sense when it came to recording her second album.
She told BANG Showbiz: "I kind of have a diary. My godmother Amy told me, 'Always keep a diary of everything you do' and I was thinking, 'how can you make a song out of stuff you've written in your diary?'
"But then it all just clicked in my head, and once you're in the zone, it's kind of just there, it was amazing."
Dionne, 15, added she and Amy worked together a great deal in the studio making 'Good for the Soul', with her helping to "tweak" certain arrangements until they were just right.
She added: "She was always in the studio always helping, if something didn't sound right, in one of the verses or whatever, she'd just tweak it here and there.
"Some of the songs she had a little bit of input into writing the songs, and singing wise - well, you'll just have to wait and see."
'Good for the Soul' is released in June.Posted on 18 Apr 2011 08:30 to category : Music News
