Floetry, comprising of Natalie Stewart (“the Floacist”) and Marsha Ambrosius (“the Songstress”), first began to capture attention in the UK during the late ‘90s. Formed in 1999, having met through their love of basketball some ten years earlier, the Brit school alumni’s Stewart and Ambrosius began writing songs and playing shows in and around London on various performance poetry stages.
Following a bold move to the states in 2000, the ladies found success overseas signing a management deal with Julius Erving III and becoming regulars at Philadelphia’s infamous “Black Lilly” jam sessions. Floetry’s “poetic delivery with musical intent” captured the eye of DJ Jazzy Jeff and the ladies soon began recording with the Philly native.
Signing a deal with Dreamworks by the end of 2000, Floetry recorded two studio albums Floetic (2002) and Flo’Ology (2005) and one live album Floacism (2003). Floetic sold over 788,000 copies in the United States alone. The album spawned the singles “Floetic” and two top ten songs “Say Yes” and “Getting Late”. Following their success, both in the charts and on the underground scene, Floetry released their live album Floacism, featuring the single “Wanna B Where U R (This Is A Love Song)”. Flo’Ology followed with the release of “SupaStar” featuring Common.
Floetry has received seven Grammy Award nomination, three Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards and have penned classics for Earth Wind & Fire, Michael Jackson (Marsha only), Jill Scott, Macy Gray, Glenn Lewis (Marsha only) and Bilal to name but a few.
On May 16, 2015, Floetry reunited to perform their first show in almost nine years at the Pepsi Funk Festival in College Park, Georgia. Following, “The Reunion Tour” went on to perform 43 critically acclaimed shows across the United States culminating with a homecoming show in Brixton, South London where their journey first began. Floetry plans to record new material and continue pleasing audiences worldwide with their infamous live show.
