Multi-instrumentalist, producer, singer & songwriter Florence Donovan played the piano and sung from an early age but it was not until a struggle and recovery from anorexia and a subsequent move abroad that she took the plunge into a full time musical career. Born in London now based in Italy, she experimented with various genres, formations and bands, appeared on Italian National TV, and toured both Italy & the UK- where she supported Bryan Ferry. Deciding to go solo in 2011, she spent 3 years under the staircase at home, Harry Potter style, writing, producing and recording what would become her debut solo album “The Widowed Earth”. Using field recordings, extensive sound design and learning to play any instrument necessary. The result is a hypnotic genre defying cinematic soundscape of an album, her “pieces as much sound sculptures as they are songs”. [Huffington Post “A singer song writer in full bloom”] Taking the stage name Dos Floris (Florence and Donovan were already taken) the album was released in November 2015 by the Irish independent label, Dynamik Records and made it onto a number of bloggers, radio presenters and independent record store’s top 10 best albums of the year getting excellent reviews & comparisons to Bjork, Portishead, Cocteau Twins & Kate Bush. The first video “Water”, in the words of a recent review, a “a gorgeous, bucolic convergence of the human spirit and nature” was released in November and will be followed up with a second video in February 2017. Described as a “one woman powerhouse” with “genre defying skills that are not quite of this earth”. [Glitter & Stilettos “an extraordinary electronic encounter, Velvet Independent] Dos Floris’ live performances are captivating audiences. She uses an array of instruments – strings, keys, flutes, looping pedals, experimental effects and a pure captivating voice to create hypnotic sets that develop the tracks beyond the album versions”. [Cambridge Music Reviews] Future dates for Dos Floris include an already sold out show in London April 2017 where costumes, visuals and music will come together for an immersive experience and an interview with It Matters Radio in the US to be aired 1st January 2017.
