Flo Morrissey

The music of preternaturally talented neo-folk singer Flo Morrissey recalls the hazy heyday of Laurel Canyon in the '60s but also the freak folk revival of the 2000s, which is when she first discovered this sound as a child in London. Music was around her house -- her father was a fan of Devendra Banhart -- and Morrissey gravitated toward it. She began writing songs when she was 14, uploaded originals to MySpace over the next few years and, when she turned 17, left school to pursue music full-time.
