Catapulted into the international music scene with 2009's Lungs, Florence and The Machine is a group from London that creates an infectious blend of baroque pop, art rock and neo soul. Led by frontwoman Florence Welch, the band began as a collaboration between Welch and her long-time friend Isabella "Machine" Summers that was eventually called Florence and the Machine in 2007. Widely respected for her dark and romantic style, Welch works with a rotating cast of collaborating musicians to produce powerful, haunting and beautiful ballads such as the hit song, "Dog Days Are Over." The band has garnered widespread critical acclaim and taken home several industry awards including the 2011 Grammy Award for Best New Artist.
