Miss out on tickets for those first 2 Floetry shows at Center Stage? Don’t sweat it: the duo’s reunion tour keeps growing with a third show added by popular demand in Atlanta, Saturday, August 1 at Center Stage Theater!
Marsha Ambrosius and Natalie Stewart are the funky divas behind the neo-soul duo Floetry. Ambrosius and Stewart emerged in the mid-’90s as songwriters in demand. They’re behind some of the new millennium’s biggest hits, too. The pair has written tracks for Michael Jackson, Jill Scott, Glenn Lewis, and Bilal. While they’re highly respected behind the scenes, Floetry is their way of moving up front.
In 1997, Ambrosius and Stewart began writing songs and playing shows in and around London. Three years later, they moved to America in search of something bigger. A brief stint in Atlanta didn’t pan out, but their time spent in Philadelphia proved golden. Ambrosius and Stewart befriended Julius Erving III, basketball great Julius Erving’s son, in mid-2000. Floetry and Erving clicked instantly. Erving signed on as their manager and hooked the ladies up with Jeff Townes, aka DJ Jazzy Jeff, for some recording. That’s when the deals started trickling in — Floetry were official and living out a dream. In 2002, they inked a deal with DreamWorks and touched up their own work for a debut album.
