Alt Rock Woman’s History – Florence Welch

March is Woman’s History month, so why not focus on an amazing woman in the Alt world?

Florence Welch is most notably the lead in her band Florence and the Machine, as well as a feminist. She grew up knowing that woman had an important place in history. In an interview with Macleans she said “When you have a history of women behind you, you are constantly being floored by something powerful”. She has been musically influenced by other strong women, such as Vali Myers.

Her last full album, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful was influenced by Joan of Arc.
