Florrie: as traditional a musician and performer as can possibly be, but at the same time a completely new type of independent pop artist.
Florrie's bold, attention-grabbing pop music is at once robotic and human, chunky and svelte, big on ideas and not shy of explosive choruses.
Florrie is a 21 year old artist, originally from Bristol in the south-west of the UK.
She's a drummer, singer, songwriter, guitarist and remixes her own tracks.
She played her first ever gig, aged 7, dressed as a fish!
In June 2008 she became the Xenomania house drummer. She has played over a hundred gigs, including Glastonbury Festival, and Radio One's Live Lounge.
In the last two years she has played drums on 'The Promise' by Girls Aloud and various other tracks for Kylie, Pet Shop Boys etc.
Florrie worked her way up through the ranks at Xenomania from drummer to writing lyrics to singing tracks to programming and remixing.
Contemporary French disco legend Fred Falke has been an instrumental force in defining Florrie's sound. Her first track 'Call 911' was co-written and remixed by him, and was released in Feb 2010.
Florrie has released three more tracks: 'Panic Attack' also co-written and remixed by Fred Falke, 'Fascinate Me' and 'Come Back to Mine feat. Moguai'.
Florrie has made all of her music free to fans on her website Florrie.com
Florrie's tracks have gone down a storm with music blogs and influential music titles such as Pitchfork, NME and The Fader.
Kitsune, the impeccably hip French electronic music and fashion label, like 'Call 911' so much that they included it on a compilation with Ponystep, the noted fashion style webmag based in east London with a global reputation for all things fashion art and music. Call 911 has also been released as the lead single from the Kitsune x Ponystep CD in July 2010.
AS YET Florrie is not signed to a label. She wants people to sing / dance / download / love and play her music as much as possible, before she does that!
