*This is what everyone has been waiting for! Marsha Ambrosius, one half of the sadly broken group Floetry, is releasing her first solo album “Late Nights & Early Mornings” on March 11. Despite the heartache and tragedies she’s had over the past few years, the singer says she’s fine and she can do it all alone.
Her career started back in the late 90s with former group member Natalie Stewart. But since they’ve parted ways, she’s nothing more than a memory.
“I haven’t spoken to her since the end of ’06,” Ambrosius said. “It wasn’t a good thing at all.” Once as tight as sisters, Ambrosius says they went through their fair share of trials and tribulations after finding early success in the music business. “We’re two very different people who live very different lives,” Ambrosius explained. “We were babies when we got here. I wrote ‘Say Yes,’ when I was 22. That’s like a baby to me. I wrote ‘Getting Late,’ ‘Hey You’ and ‘If I Was a Bird,’ when I was 19. I had these songs sitting there, and when they were ready to be what they were, Floetry happened and that was because we were two solo artists that happened to do something at the same time that worked very well together.”
She continued, “Being apart was like, ‘Okay, I don’t have to agree or not agree with anyone else. It’s 100 percent how I feel,’ and [my solo album] ‘Late Nights & Early Mornings,’ is a direct reflection of that freedom.”
