I am far from a musical scout at this point. I am only working on learning some musical instruments at this point (guitar at the moment), to help my musical knowledge (and perhaps create some music down the line!).
With that in mind, I do have good musical taste (I also have some poor taste, but I can differentiate the two), and sometimes I know who is talented and who is not, who deserves fame, and who does not. Sometimes those that deserve the recognition do not get it, that is just how the major record labels are set up, as they are indeed a business after all.
A little while ago I somehow stumbled upon Florrie, obviously there is some buzz going around since I found her. Anyway, her debut EP, Introduction, is up at her website, florrie.com as a free download. I only now just read her statement about why she has not signed yet with a major label, or label period. Basically she wants to have time to grow as an artist, to evolve her sound the way she sees fit. That is pretty cool, given most artists would jump at the opportunity to be signed by a label, especially a major label.
So I feel there is no doubt she has the potential to be big! And not only is she a singer, she is a drummer! It is not often we hear of singer-songwriter/drummer! She actually has drummer first on her website!
So, I highly recommend checking her out, it is even possible to download her tracks in FLAC!
Here is a live performance of the outstanding percussion heavy “Give Me Your Love”:
Florrie has a new EP coming soon, and a music video to accompany the first song from the EP, both April 28!
Also stay tuned to this blog, I plan on linking to some quality free (legal) MP3s I find elsewhere on the web! Like this post, I’ll link to the page not to the direct files.
