We regret to inform you that the Floetry show tonight in Boston must be cancelled due to Marsha Ambrosius being sick and being unable to perform. At the present time there is no place in the tour schedule to reschedule it to and we have no other option but cancellation.
Floetry, the English Neo Soul duo comprising of Natalie Stewart (͞the Floacist͟) and Marsha Ambrosius (͞the Songstress͟), first began to capture attention in the UK during the late 90͛s. Formed in 1999, having met through their love of basketball some ten years earlier, the Brit school alumni͛s Ambrosius and Stewart began writing songs and playing shows in and around London on various performance poetry stages.
A bold move to the states in 2000 allowed the ladies to accomplish what many UK artists fail to do; find success overseas, as America wholeheartedly embraced them. After moving from Atlanta to Philly and signing a management deal with Julius Erving III, and becoming regulars at the infamous Black Lilly jam sessions, Floetry͛s ͞poetic delivery with musical intent͟ captured the eye of DJ Jazzy Jeff and the ladies soon began recording with the Philly native.
Signing a deal with Dreamworks by the end of 2000 Floetry recorded two studio albums Floetic (2002) and Flo͛Ology (2005) and one live album Floacism (2003). Floetic sold over 788,000 copies in the United States alone. Floetry were recognized for their talents by receiving nominations for an impressive 7 Grammy Awards, they also picked up 3 Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards and went on to pen classics for Earth Wind & Fire, Michael Jackson (Marsha only), Jill Scott, Macy Gray, Glenn Lewis (Marsha only), and Bilal to name but a few.
February 2015, Stewart confirmed that the duo would be touring in 2015 and on May 16th, 2015, Floetry reunited to perform their first show in almost nine years at the Pepsi Funk Festival in College Park, Georgia. After a critically acclaimed 43 shows Reunion Tour across the United States culminating with a homecoming show in Brixton, South London where their journey first began. The Floetry train is full steam ahead, as Natalie and Marsha continue to please audiences worldwide with their renowned live show and with new recorded material in the works.
