  • Fun Faith Fact!: During June 2015, Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters broke his leg on stage prior to his band's upcoming Glastonbury Festival headline performance, causing Florence + The Machine to be the headline band. Shortly after, Florence broke her foot after leaping off the stage at the Coachella Festival.

Famous for her flaming red hair and phenomenal voice, London-born Florence Welch was encouraged to sing by her grandparents and often got into trouble at school for impromptu singing. After graduating from secondary school, she studied music briefly but opted to take a year off to "see where the music would go".

We all know where it went: Florence + the Machine, fashion icon status, and a desire to use her voice for good. She is an avid reader, and participates in a fan book club, 'Between Two Books'.
