Taylor Swift is
a four-time GRAMMY winner, the top-selling digital artist in music history, has
had singles top both the Country and Pop radio charts, and had the #1
best-selling album in any genre of music in 2009.  Her most recent album, Speak Now,
sold over a million copies in its debut week, making it the biggest debuting
country studio album in history.  Speak Now charted an unprecedented 11
songs in a single week on the Billboard
Hot 100.

Taylor, who writes all of her own songs, became the youngest
artist in history to win the GRAMMY Award for Album of the Year and the CMA
Award for Entertainer of the Year.  She
was also named Artist of the Year at the 2009 American Music Awards.
 
Taylor currently
holds the Billboard all-genre records for most first-week downloads by
a female artist, for the longest charting album of this century and for most
Top 20 debuts in a calendar year, as well as the Billboard record for the largest overall airplay audience for a
country-based act. Taylor
plans to tour in support of Speak Now,
and is currently slated to play 87 shows in 19 countries in 2011.
 

Florence Welch,
the driving force behind Florence + the Machine, grew up in Camberwell, South
London, surrounded by music of every genre, and got her start singing in clubs
and pubs.  Florence’s honest, heartfelt
debut album, Lungs, which is full of
Gothic imagery, fairytale flights of fancy, love, pain and a cavalcade of
instruments, was released in the summer of 2009 and has gained popularity ever
since.  Her soaring, epic vocals, quirky
melodies and self-contained musical world have already won Florence + the Machine the 2009 Critics
Choice Award at the Brits and earned the band a GRAMMY Nomination for Best New
Artist.
 

Live, Florence + the Machine
becomes an entirely different beast and no two performances are ever
alike.  Florence,
along with the Machine – a flexible entity which can go right down to Florence and a drum kit or
a piano, but is currently a seven-piece band – go at it like a band
possessed.
