Florence Clementine (née Morrissey, born 25 December 1994), better known by her stage name Flo Morrissey, is an English singer-songwriter from Notting Hill, London. She has released two albums, three singles and has toured internationally.
Born in London to a large family with eight siblings, Flo Morrissey discovered an interest in folk music at an early age. She is the daughter of Helena Morrissey, a former CEO of Newton Investment Management, and Richard, a Buddhist monk and former financial journalist. Morrissey began to write her own songs at the age of 14 and left school three years later, and gained a place at the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology where she studied music for two years. Deciding upon a career in music, after leaving the BRIT school, she commented, "it has meant that I haven’t met many like-minded people, like I might have if I’d gone to university". After releasing a video performing the song "If You Can’t Love This All Goes Away," she was signed to Glassnote Records. The recording sessions for her debut album took place during the summer of 2014 in Los Angeles, CA. In December 2014 Morrissey released the single "Pages of Gold," to be followed in June 2015 by the album Tomorrow Will Be Beautiful, produced by Noah Georgeson and Philippe Zdar. Morrissey was featured on a number of festivals in 2015, including Glastonbury. In September she moved to Paris while she toured Japan and North America and released the single "Show Me" in December 2015. On January 13, 2017, Morrissey released an album of covers with Matthew E. White entitled Gentlewoman, Ruby Man. It received four out of five stars from The Guardian's Alexis Petridis.
