With her mix of classical, jazz, and theatrical vocal training, Flo's voice is a versatile instrument. A quick study, she is great with harmonies and can nail tracks in the studio, often in the first take. She has experience as a session singer for national commercials and has been hired to sing leads and harmonies as well as play keys on projects for other bands and songwriters in the pop, country, dance, jazz, and blues genres. If you're looking for a unique female voice to make your project stand out from the crowd, send Flo an email.

Custom Songs and Scoring:
Flo has recently begun to write custom songs and scores for specific projects. As a mulit-instrumentalist (cello, piano, guitar) and former member of many group ensembles, including orchestras, choirs, a cappella groups, bands, guitar ensembles, and a Mande ensemble, Flo has an ear for arrangement. As a Music major, Flo began scoring while she was at Wesleyan University. She has since been hired to score a short documentary about the health care field and is always interested in other opportunities to use her scoring and arrangement skill set. Flo's latest custom song endeavor was for the American NGO Fuller Center for Housing Bolivia, an organization that builds homes for low income families. Hired to write a signature song for the company, Flo recorded a multi-track piece for the company to use promotionally.

Did you know Flo actually went to college planning to major in Acting and had such an amazing experience in the music program that she changed her mind? Flo started working in Summer Stock theatre at the tender age of 8, playing children's roles as well as adults as she got older, alongside professional actors every summer, growing up in upstate New York. Flo continued to work in theatre at Wesleyan University, starring in musicals like "The Fantastiks" and acting in a black box production of "Jesus Christ Superstar" which starred the creator of "In the Heights" and "Hamilton', Lin Manuel Miranda. While in school, Flo began putting her words to music and decided that songwriting was her love but she's done a bit of acting since graduating as well for commercials, film festivals, and music videos. She plays two roles in her award winning music video for "Uh Oh!" and she recently starred in a music video for the award winning song "A Little Note" by fellow DC singer/songwriter, Laura Baron.

If you're looking for a creative and convenient way to incorporate Flo's music into your life, a house concert may be your solution! While touring Europe, Flo fell in love with the house concert circuit. House concerts are a great way for fans to help spread the music and contribute to a sense of community. This works especially well for people with young kids. If you already host a house concert series and are interested in booking Flo for a gig, please feel free to email.
If you've never hosted or attended a house concert and would like to hear more, here's a quick summary of how it generally works. A host decides to mix up their Saturday night by inviting friends over to their home to hear a musician they enjoy. Sometimes hosts provide food and drinks, other times people decide to set it up so that food and drinks are potluck style and/or BYOB. Flo provides the sound system so all that is required of the host in terms of sound is an outlet. Hosts can either pay a flat fee or charge guests a cover of 10$ to cover the difference. Shows usually last 2 hours with a break in the middle for guests to eat, drink, and mingle and for the artist to sell cds. It's a really great set up and one of the most organic ways to share the music you love with your friends, family, and co-workers. If you're interested in hosting a house concert, please email Flo with "House Concert" in the subject of your email!
