Florence Welch Reveals The Drunken Toilet Moment That Started Her Music Career
Toilets have really good acoustics apparently...
Who would have guessed that international singing sensation Florence Welch got her big break in a club toilet? Yeah, we didn't either.
In this week's episode of Relentless Ultra Presents Soundchain, Flo reveals how she got noticed by her now manager in the club toilet.
"I went to one of Mairead's [Nash, Florence's manager] club nights and we were in the toilet talking about boys or something, and I was pretending that I had a band," Florence revealed to Nick Grimshaw on the show.
"I was basically fronting, I was no band, at all! I sang a snippet of an Etta James song. I was like 'I can sing!!' I was pretty drunk..."
Turns out Florence is just like us - unashamedly belting out a power ballad on a night out.
"But toilets have really good acoustics," she continues, "and I found out that Etta James sang to her manager in a toilet as well!"
It must have been fate!
