Floetry was formed after Ambrosius joined her on stage in 1999 to perform at a spoken word night called Poets vs MC's, where they debuted a piece that they had written together called "Fantasize", combining spoken word and singing.
In 2000, the duo traveled to the United States to perform on the poetry circuit.
In November 2012 she released her second album "The Floacist presents Floetry Re: Birth" and has stated that its title and theme represent a celebration of the tenth anniversary of Floetry's breakthrough as a recording act.
After frequenting spoken word/poetry spots in Atlanta, such as Yin Yang Poets' Cafe, they moved on to Philadelphia.
There they met Darren "Limitless" Henson and Keith "Keshon" Pelzer of DJ Jazzy Jeff's Touch of Jazz studio and began recording.
Their neo-soul sultriness and unique mixture of poetry and song quickly gained the attention of music lovers and critics alike, garnering a total of seven Grammy nominations.
Floetry, which was composed of Marsha Ambrosius (“The Songstress”) and Natalie Stewart (“The Floacist”), later released a live album, in 2005. Stewart’s solo album in 2010 that Stewart left the group and it was “the biggest heartbreak” she ever had to go through. “The vibration and ebb and flow of Floetry is very precious to me.
A self-described "modern-day poet", The Floacist creates songs that are often characterized by themes of love, relationships, and inspiration, as well as problems and solutions.
Throughout a career spanning 16 years, she has sold over 2 million records.
The Floacist found her true calling on the performance poetry scene, where she was able to natural merge all of her artistic expressional outputs as a writer and performer.
This led to the manifestation of her Floetic ethos of 'poetic delivery of musical intent'.
Following her establishment of her solo career, she released her second solo album, Floetry Re: Birth (2012), which contained singles "Say Yes", "Soul", and "Speechless".
