Rosie - Joan Armatrading

Joan Armatrading was born in Basseterre, Saint Kitts in the West Indies on December 9, 1950. She moved with her family to Birmingham, England in 1957. She moved to London in the early Seventies to perform in a production of the musical 'Hair'. This led to her meeting lyricist Pam Nestor and recording her debut album 'Whatever's for us' (1972).

'Rosie' was released after five albums in 1980. It became her first European hit, reaching number 15 in the Netherlands.
