Hi! I'm Florelie aka Flo. I'm a singer based in East London (Hackney). I moved to London 2 years ago from Melbourne, Australia to immerse myself with the UK's great music scene. I endeavour to learn from the best people in the business and dedicated in putting in the work required of me.
I am very, very passionate about learning all I can about singing, and meeting amazing people along the way is my life-long goal. I have been singing professionally for 13 years now and will be for the rest of my life. Singing is currently my only source of income and do not work in any other industries.
The artists that move me are: Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston, Sarah Vaughn, Nina Simone, James Brown, Michael Jackson, D'Angelo, Maxwell, Erykah Badu, Brandy and a whole lot more.
LEAD VOCALIST jobs
Right now, my main band is called Motown Gold by an agency called Earcandy. We perform the most awesome Motown Classics at private functions (corporate gigs and weddings, mostly). I am one of their lead female singers and we play about 40-50 gigs/year. I've been working with Earcandy since Aug 2015. They are quite supportive and are accommodating whenever I need to dep gigs out. Here is our promo video released earlier this year:
I also perform in numerous other bands and play solo (with backing tracks) and acoustic duo as well.
I also write, arrange and record my own soul influenced music: http://flo.fm

In May 2014 to Feb 2015, I led the Soul Of Aretha tribute project. We were a 10-pce soul band and we played 2 x 1hr sets of all of Aretha's biggest hits. http://flo.fm/soulofaretha
