Florence Donovan, better known as Dos Floris, will be at the Portland Arms tomorrow (Wednesday)

2017 was a big year for Dos Floris, as October saw the release of her debut solo album, The Widowed Earth, which caught the attention of BBC6 Music’s Tom Robinson.

The record was the result of a lifelong desire to be a full-time musician put on hold by the grind of a nine-to-five job, alongside battles with teenage anorexia and panic attacks.

The album was recorded beneath the stairs at her home, and the product of her unorthodox approach is a genre-defying cinematic soundscape that also caught the attention of Huffington Post, community radio stations and other underground alternative music blogs.

In November 2017, Dos Floris embarked on the first leg of ‘The Widowed Earth’ UK tour playing 150-200 capacity venues in London, Brighton, Bristol and Bath. The tour earned her new fans, a ‘one to watch for 2018’ accolade and excellent live reviews.

“Incredibly evocative” were the words Russell Jeanes for Tom Robinson’s Fresh on the Net used to describe her.

Dos Floris will be at the Portland Arms on Wednesday, April 18 at 7.30pm.

Tickets: £8.80
