AccuRadio Song Of The Day-Marsha Ambrosius
Song:Late Nights & Early Mornings
Album:Late Nights & Early Mornings
R & B singer Marsha Ambrosius is best known for her success as one half of the duo Floetry. She has recorded two albums since going solo and she has had success on the R & B charts. She was born Aug. 8, 1977 in Liverpool, England. She met Floetry partner Natalie Stewart while both were attending BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology. They formed Floetry and moved to Philadelphia in 2000. They signed with DreamWorks Records and had success with the 2002 album Floetic. But DreamWorks was unsuccessful and after they closed, Floetry split up in 2006. Marsha signed with Dr. Dre's Aftermath Entertainment. Nothing came from that but Marsha was still active as a songwriter working with Alicia Keys, Jamie Foxx and others. Then she signed with J Records for her 2011 debut CD Late Nights & Early Mornings. Marsha had success on the R & B charts with singles like Hope She Cheats On You (With A Basketball Player), Far Away and Late Nights & Early Mornings. She was nominated for a couple of Grammys. Marsha wrote and produced most of the album. She co-wrote and produced Late Nights & Early Mornings with Beyonce's producer Rich Harrison. After J Records was closed, Marsha was moved to RCA. Her 2014 album Friends & Lovers didn't do as well as the first album. She may be getting lost in the shuffle at RCA and it wouldn't surprise me if she went elsewhere. This year she appeared on several songs on Dr. Dre's latest CD Compton. Marsha's songwriting and production talent will assure that she has a long career in music. But she's a great singer too so maybe she needs a more supportive label. Here's the video for Late Nights & Early Mornings by Marsha Ambrosius.
