Standing on Ceremony

Florence stormed on to the worldwide stage in 2007 with an instantly recognizable voice, telling stories of frailty and heartbreak. Recalling the free spirit of Kate Bush and the innovation of Bjork, Ms Welch knows how to use a harp to send shivers down your spine.

First appearing at R+L in 2009 fresh from BBC Introducing, Florence + The Machine (which changes regularly, but can be anything from a piano to a 7 piece band) are experts in creating powerful performances, where gothic-tinged wailing combines with pulsing drum beats to produce a in-demand musical experience. Celebrated albums Lungs and Ceremonials are never far from the charts, with Lungs becoming one of the best-selling albums of 2009/10 and Ceremonials bearing the genius touch of producer Paul Epworth.

Magical, etheral and heart stopping - Florence and her machine will whisk you away on an intense trip, where all that matters is getting lost in epic harmonies and beautiful eccentricity.
