Artist Of The Month



FloetryMarsha Ambrosius and Natalie Stewart are the funky divas behind the neo-soul duo, Floetry. Ambrosius and Stewart emerged in the mid-nineties as songwriters in demand. They're behind some of the new millennium's biggest hits, too.

The pair has written tracks for Michael Jackson, Jill Scott, Glenn Lewis and Bilal. While they're highly respected behind the scenes, Floetry is their way of moving up front.

Ambrosius is the songstress to Stewart's spoken-word impresario or "floacist" role. The two met due to their love of basketball. Stewart, who hails from London, was superstar on her court while Ambrosius wowed fans in her local English neighborhood. They were competitive, but not rivals, so a friendship was formed. Music was also a passion. Ambrosius relished in her reggae roots while Stewart found herself grooving to funk and soul. While attending Brits Performing Arts School, Ambrosius studied business and finance, but made room for courses in voice, performance technique and recording. Stewart split her time between acting and directing. Later, Ambrosius and Stewart headed to college.

Ambrosius planned to attend Georgia Tech University on a basketball scholarship, but injury forced her to bow out. Stewart headed for Middlesex University, eventually transferring to North London University. Still, they two kept in touch and raved about music. It wouldn't be until Stewart's girl group, 3 Plus 1, disbanded that Floetry would actually give music a serious shot.

In 1997, Ambrosius and Stewart began writing songs and playing shows in and around London. Three years later, they moved to America in search of something bigger. A brief stint in Atlanta didn't pan out, but their time spent in Philadelphia proved golden. Ambrosius and Stewart befriended J. Erving, basketball great Julius Erving's son, in mid-2000. Floetry and Erving clicked instantly. Erving signed on as their manager and hooked the ladies up with Jeff Townes, aka DJ Jazzy Jeff, for some recording. That's when the deals started trickling in -- Floetry were official and living out a dream. In 2002, they inked a deal with DreamWorks and touched up their own work for a debut album. Floetic appeared in October 2002. Flo' Ology followed three years later.
