Music: Floetry's Marsha Ambrosius drops debut album

Marsha Ambrosius debut solo album Late Nights & Early Mornings

We all fell in love with the soulful voice of Marsha Ambrosius as the singing half of the Floetry duo back in 2000 when their debut album Floetic debuted to great critical acclaim. With classics such as Say Yes and Getting Late, the album secured four Grammy nominations. The second album Flo'Ology soon followed in 2005 and with creative and personal differences flowing between them, the duo soon parted ways to pursue solo careers.
The former Brit School student, Marsha's debut album Late Nights & Early Mornings is destined to become a classic, set for release on the 28th February in the UK, the album will certainly propel her into the legions of the best mainstream female artists the UK has to offer like fellow Brit attendees, Adele and Jessie J. Artists and producers  featuring on the debut album include, Alicia Keys, a reunion with Dre and Vidal (producers of Say Yes), Just Blaze and Focus.
Since departing from Floetry, Marsha has continued to garner a name for herself not only as a singer with an incredible vocal range and ability, but as a very talented songwriter and producer, penning Butterflies for the late Micheal Jackson among other hits for artists such as Alicia Keys, Jamie Foxx, Justin Timberlake and Nas to mention a few.

Marsha cites icons such as Stevie Wonder, Prince and of course Michael Jackson as inspirations for her songwriting stating that, "My pen and my point of view has a certain aggression to it because I've listened to a lot of male influenced music, which I think makes me one of the most outspoken writers out here. Sometimes as a woman you don't wanna say what's on your mind for fear of being judged. But why wouldn't I say it like that if that's how I felt?" I couldn't agree more, and this mentality has certainly worked for her as she has earned an astonishing six Grammy nominations and has also been honored by BMI as their Songwriter of the Year.

I have already pre-ordered a copy of the album which I am sure will be taking me through Late Nights & Early Mornings aplenty.
