Florence Black Bio

Florence Black are a young rock band from Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales. Writing and performing together since childhood: Tristan, Jordan and Perrys’ impressive self-taught musical abilities have garnered all sorts of attention since they exploded onto the charmed Welsh rock scene as teenagers.

Now a tight knit unit of seriously talented musicians, and with three EP releases and shows with Stone Sour behind them, Florence Black are gaining ground. The trio’s energy, determination and undeniable songwriting skill, tangible in tracks such as Down, and the beautiful Grove Street, has earned them recent airtime on Planet Rock Radio and a growing, highly addicted fanbase.

Florence Black spent much of 2019 in pre-production recording demos with Michael Paget (BFMV) and his partner Jennifer Stacey at Crack Hill Studio, S.Wales. They completed their first ever UK headline run last November and just finished a sold out tour supporting Those Damn Crows (Feb 2020), the buzz continues with ITB recently adding the boys to their prestigious roster.

Florence Black are now preparing for their up & coming new releases, a busy Summer festival season and beyond.


Live Review Text

Florence Black hit the stage like dynamite, consistently incredible live. Prolific singer/songwriter Tristan Thomas (23, vocals, guitar) owns the room from the off with his huge voice, charismatic stage presence and astonishing technical ability. Tristan is partnered up front by the thunderous energy of Jordan Evans (25, backing vocals, bass) and backed by the rock solid grooves of Perry Davies (22, backing vocals, drums). All three musicians give explosive, highly physical performances that transfix the audience throughout. Florence Black are a must see live band.

Memorably beautiful melodies, crushing heavy riffs and retro vibes combine to create Florence Black’s MASSIVE live sound.

…Yes, there really are only three of them up there!..
