The new album Characters journals Flo’s exploration, getting to know the different aspects of herself and her relationship to them, exploring themes such as family roots, identity, relationships, belonging, mental health and the significance of self-reflection. Her lyrics are articulate, and the music original and mesmerising, showing how contemporary Folk music is evolving. Recorded and mixed at MAP Studio, Kentish Town, with a group of incredible session musicians, the new album features drums, electric and upright bass, keyboards, saxophone and a string trio.
With musical influences ranging from Zero 7 and Avishai Cohen to Laura Marling and Erykah Badu, Flo has dedicated her creativity to music that is meaningful to her. From busking around the Middle East, USA, Europe and Asia (where she ordained as a Buddhist nun in Myanmar), life unexpectedly changed when Flo was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease at the end of 2015 and spent a few years in and out of hospital. Over this challenging time, she created her beautiful new album, Characters.DOWNLOAD LYRICS
