About Florence and The Machine
Very few at the age of 25 can sing about eating the hearts of her lovers, but Florence Welsh can. She and her band sing about love lost, love found, and other related tragedies. Each song has a story to tell, much like each story has a song to sing, and the listener can empathise with the lyrics. Releasing their debut album in 2009, Florence and the Machine's ‘Lungs’ held a number-two position on the UK charts and reached the top spot in early 2010. The lead singer and songwriter of the band is Florence Welch of Camberwell, England. Florence and the Machines music is a little soul, a little rock 'n' roll, and a little pop, with the occasional cover of a previous hit. Although she was born in 1986, you would think she has lived a longer, more love-filled life than her years might suggest. With hits like ‘Rabbit Heart’, ‘Kiss with a Fist’, and ‘Dog Days Are Over’, Florence and the Machine arguably has dozens of heartfelt hits, although most are not in the mainstream. Available on CD, you can find songs by Florence and the Machine unplugged, meaning there are no studio enhancements. The album covers and artwork display what you envision the songs to portray in the story. For those that can see the band live in concert, they will notice her singing is spot-on and nearly identical to her well-done albums. Welsh's voice is able to hit the high notes or sing low enough to evoke goose pimples. For the diehard fan, you can purchase Florence and the Machine posters, t-shirts, and record album versions of her music, as well as autographed photographs of Florence Welsh and the band.
