Paris-born, London-based, singer/songwriter Florence Joelle was bred on jazz at home, and on the music of the Paris streets, the Gipsy art of Django Reinhardt, Bal Musette, and North African rai, Florence started collecting rock’n’roll, and early blues as a girl.
Her music carves out a unique sound that, although deeply rooted in the past, vibrates in the present. Ever socially conscious, her songs depict what happens around her. ’29 Bus Blues’ tells of an assault on a night bus, while ‘The God Of Things’, written during the last London riots, warns of the materialistic world we live in.
