Florist began as the friendship project of Emily Sprague, Rick Spataro, and Jonnie Baker in Upstate, NY. The three started making weird sounds on synths and guitars together as a way to relate, and grew close. Felix Walworth joined as a drummer and collaborator when Emily moved to New York City and continued writing songs with the moniker.
“The most beautiful music I’ve heard in 2022” - NPR’s Bob Boilen
“Recounts the life of her late mother and her own early childhood in a series of vivid, cleareyed snapshots, sung atop a gentle, fingerpicked chord progression”
- The New York Times
"Florist’s Emily Sprague is no stranger to imbuing her songs with a certain transcendental nature. On “Red Bird Pt. 2 (Morning),” though, she, along with the rest of Florist, have captured a new level of magic." - Consequence of Sound
“A 19-track offering that reflects not just band leader Emily Sprague’s sentimental songwriting, but also the introspection and nostalgia that guided their collaborative process.” - Paste
“Falls lightly on the ears, washing over the listener with a sense of peace.”
-The AV Club
“A glittering, lovely track with acoustic guitar notes sparkling like dew in the cobwebs of Sprague's reverie."
“Florist tap into life’s mysterious frequencies on “Red Bird Pt. 2”
