Flo Winning the Black Canadian Music Award for up and coming artist.

So Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m honored and proud to say that this award win is because of YOU!!  I dedicate it to all of you who voted for me, who have supported me in so many ways from beginning to present (buying albums, watching videos, attending shows, spreading the word about the music.  Artists are who they are because of the support and love from others). I wouldn’t be here or doing what I do if it weren’t for you, so: this one’s for you!!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart, you inspire me to make sure that the best is yet to come, so stay tuned…;)

New Music Video: Gone

From the talented team behind the Hateless video comes the Gone music video (it was an absolute pleasure to work with consummate pros and creative geniuses such as Mike and Dylan from Electric Monk Media, Joey Senft, Alisha Talbot, Praise Okwumabua, Amy Sidoryk, Chris Sutherland, and Amanda Fandych). Ever gone through a bad breakup? Well you’ll definitely relate with this one. Hope you like it, enjoy!

FLO – Pieces of Me (MFM)
FOR her second full length album, Winnipeg-based urban singer-songwriter Florence Oramasionwu has created nothing less than an exceptionally hot set of tracks that, in a just world, would send her to the very top of the overly crowded genre.

Miss O, or Flo as she goes, has the kind of vocal power and sass that only a select few divas possess, and her ability to shift gears from intense ballads to sticky and sweet dance tunes and back to between-the-sheets scorchers is the stuff of future legends. Heck, with the right combination of luck and timing, this gal could hit the big time.

By teaming up with well-positioned producer Arun Chaturvedi, Oramasionwu has practically sealed the deal toward larger recognition. Fans of this kind of music will have their favourite tracks, but anyone with ears will get the popping joy behind My Song and the delicious old-school soul vibe of the sensuous You Showed Me. Sophomore slump? Not this time. ****

Pieces of Me, the second (and recently Western Canadian Music Award nominated) album from local soul/pop powerhouse Flo, couldn’€™t be more aptly named. Like the woman behind it, the new record is positive, encouraging, upbeat, strong and beautiful and reminds you that you are, too.

Produced by WCMA winner Arun Chaturvedi, Pieces of Me comes as the decidedly more up-tempo follow-up to 2007’€™s self-titled debut.

“Personally, I really wanted (this record) to be more upbeat,” explains Flo (aka Florence Oramasionwu). “The first album, I was proud of the process and the result, but one of the vibes of my personality that didn’€™t really come through was how upbeat I am. It was sort of mid-tempo and more jazzy, which is great, but sometimes you just want a beat! I wanted songs people could dance to.”

That said, Flo wasn’€™t interested in making songs that people could dance to at the expense of quality lyrics.

I’d love for you to take part in the Hateless video. If you or anybody you know of has something to say about bullying, what the word “Hateless” means to you, or any experiences, create a short video (30 seconds, 1 minute), post it on youtube and send it to me. We’ll compile the responses and put them into the Hateless music video. Please spread the word and share this with whomever you think should or would like to be involved.

I’m happy to share the release of my new single “Hateless”, it’s an anti-bullying song that can be heard on my Facebook Fan page.

Please feel free to take the time to listen to it, like the page, share the song, and purchase it if you like.

Thank you, and stay tuned for more info to come about the official release date of the sophomore album, “Pieces of me”…
