« WAKE UP »
Flore M’s new single
Available on all digital platforms
In March 2014, Flore M made the daring bet to record live, at Pfaffenhoffen’s “La Scène”, her very first EP entitled “This is Who I M“, which she released in front of Strasbourg public in April 2015 at “La Laiterie”.
Strengthened by this beautiful musical identity card, the singer went out to conquer her native Alsace and the Grand Est region, before seducing Paris, Germany and then Spain.
Faithful to Soul-music, respectful of the laws of Groove and concerned with perpetuating the soul of Blues, Flore M is back with her new single, “WAKE UP“. An ardent track, carried by her powerful voice on a catchy mid-tempo, and composed around an introspective text inviting to awakening.
Energetic and poignant song, rocked by Gospel backing vocals, bathed in the heat of the Hammond organ and haloed by a luminous guitar, “WAKE UP” is the subject of a video clip where Flore M gives tribute to the great Josephine Baker. An iconic figure who inspires the Alsatian singer, who concludes her new song with a vibrant message of hope: “It’s time to believe, it’s time to turn on your light”.
Well, it is time to listen to Flore M.

Flore was 13 when, thanks to her elder brothers, she discovered Gospel Music in 1998 with the High Rock Gospel Singers (1st Gospel Choir in Alsace – France), then directed by Pastor Frederic Setodzo. With four choir colleagues from the High Rock Gospel Singers, Flore wants to invest more in her music. Together, they created the quintet The Five Sisters with which they will travel the Alsatian scenes for almost seven years and will participate in the musical program X Factor broadcast on M6 in 2011. Whether in concerts or opening for artists such as Jean Carpenter and Craig Adams, the quintet allows Flore to flourish through her passion that keeps on growing. In 2010, the five sisters met the group Sum Voice, the acapella band, whose characteristic is to use the voice as one and only instrument, single vector of emotions. It is for Flore the beginning of a fruitful collaboration, discovery of the extent of her vocal abilities and her first encounter with the music business. From now on, the work is
accurate, meticulous and daily. In 2011, after 13 years of music within groups, Flore challenges herself and participates to the New Soul Contest (1st Soul competition in Eastern France) organized by the association LesSons d’la Rue. This first solo appearance ends with a victory that reinforces the young woman with the idea that alone or accompanied, the stage is where she belongs. It took her nearly two years to completely get involve in her music. A period during which her experiences, more or less painful, became melodies. Like the butterfly in its cocoon, the artist took the time to meet, accept and renew herself, thus creating a universe imbued with serenity and luminosity to share. Inspired by artists such as Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles or Alicia Keys, it is in 2013, alongside Michel Latour (arrangements, artistic direction) and Patrick Faller (composition) that the singer begins her new life, under the pseudonym of Flore M…
