Florence Welch (aka Florence and the Machine) is an art-college dropout from Camberwell, London, who was discovered singing Motown covers in a nightclub toilet, drunk. Musically, Florence and the Machine’s sound is referred to as soul-inspired indie rock that often pulls comparissons to Grace Slick.

Welch, who grew up listening to The White Stripes and Kate Bush, says she writes metaphorical songs that are “stories with consequences and weird morality issues,” She gets her material from a variety of sources and experiences. Florence And The Machine’s music has received praise across the British music media, especially from the BBC who have played a large part in their rise to prominence by bringing them into the spotlight as part of BBC Introducing. At the Brit Awards 2009 Florence picked up the Critics Choice Award; a category introduced in 2008 focusing on new talent, voted for by a panel of music industry experts.
