When the UK press dubbed Adele “the next Amy Winehouse” in late 2007, the hype didn’t touch upon the singer songwriter’s influences. Influenced by Roberta Flack and Suzanne Vega, Adele soon became a phenomenon in her own right. Her second album, 21, eventually sold an estimated 30 million copies worldwide, making her one of the few sales successes in an age of digital streaming. Adele first made an impression in 2006 when her demo landed her a deal with XL Recordings. She toured as an opening act for Jack Penate and graduated to headlining status by the end of 2007. An appearance alongside Paul McCartney and Björk on the BBC 2 television show Later with Jools Holland came next and a recording contract with XL Recordings was finalized shortly after. Early 2008 brought similar success as Adele found herself atop the BBC’s new music talent list which was compiled from votes of 150 music critics. That same January, XL issued a new single, “Chasing Pavements” along with her debut album 19. The title reflected Adele`s age at the time of the album’s release, and its popularity resulted in the release of several bonus editions throughout the year. Also in 2009, Adele won Grammy Awards for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
