Florence + the Machine: An Almighty Sound

by Zoe Howe - £14.95  Omnibus Press (2012)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781780385136 | ISBN 10: 1780385137

The story of Florence + The Machine makes an exhilarating contrast to the fortunes of those pre-packaged, stage-schooled pop stars who just wanted to be famous.
 
A bookish south London child who had sung at family funerals, Florence Welch exploded onto the international scene after her wild art school party days and a series of life-changing meetings with people like co-writer Isabella Summers, manager Mairead Nash and producer Paul Epworth.
 
The first two albums, Lungs and Ceremonials, went multi-platinum and Florence + The Machine's emotional, quasi-mystical brand of pop brought them international fame. Meanwhile Florence's idiosyncratic fashion sense had grabbed the attention of Gucci and Karl Lagerfeld, so guaranteeing the band an eye-catching icon to match the music.
