Florence Donovan, aka Dos Floris, is an artist whose resolve and inspiration in the face of adversity is nothing short of remarkable. Music has been a part of her life since a very young age, but it wasn’t until a struggle with and recovery from anorexia that she was able to fully immerse herself in her career, “The Widowed Earth” charts this journey & culminates in a restoration towards restoring her equilibrium.
After relocating from the UK to Italy, Dos Floris bounced between genres, formations and bands, all with moderate success. Her true transformation came when she decided to strike out as a solo artist. Her method was unconventional, but chock full of inspiration. In what she refers to as “Harry Potter style,” she spent 3 years under the staircase at home writing, producing, and recording what would become The Widowed Earth. “The result is a hypnotic genre defying cinematic soundscape of an album, her “pieces are much sound sculptures as they are songs.” (Huffington Post)
