Rising Starlet: Florence Hartigan

 alt=  alt=

Hailing from New Zealand, FLORENCE HARTIGAN has a magical cuteness as well as voice to incite adoration. While the DVD for “Entrance” has yet to reach the shores of many countries, Florence together with leading lady Suziey Block (which i featured before) are the eye-catching duo in the indie slasher. Unconventionality breeds avid interest in this modern times and I’ve always gravitated to the uniqueness that talents such as FLORENCE can exhibit. Certainly as a vocalist, she’s enthralls with her folksy sound over poetic grooves that manages to tell a story. In terms of features, FLORENCE has a cherubic appeal most of us will find rather fascinating. She has such a gentle persona and has been ever so nice to me on Facebook…:)

For the lucky people in New York City, this adorable brunette is performing at Hotel Cafe on May 14th. It’s the chance to watch a singer who has been compared to Angie Hart from Aussie group Frente seeing how FLORENCE has delicate vocals on such a melodic plane. Watch her music video “One Too Many Mornings” (above) for it has a soothing effect for the soul with its stripped down intimacy. Utilizing a common Kiwi praise, FLORENCE is indeed sweet-as, a term New Zealanders often say when they mean a person is “cool” or “awesome”! Hope she loves it!
