Already proven as a talented, sought after songwriter and revered platinum-selling artist, Marsha Ambrosius is meeting the next challenge in her already impressive musical career by reinventing herself as a solo artist with her J Records debut disc, "Late Nights & Early Mornings.”

Hailing from Liverpool, England, fans first got a taste of Marsha’s talent as the singing half of the duo Floetry. Their 2000 debut, “Floetic,” produced signature singles like “Say Yes" and "Getting Late" as well as four Grammy nods. Following the 2005 release of their second studio album, “Flo’Ology,” the ladies veered creatively and personally. While the split was difficult, Marsha continued to build a name for herself as a songwriter and producer, creating “Butterflies” for the late Michael Jackson and other hits for artists such as Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake, Jamie Foxx and Nas. She’s been nominated for a total of six Grammys and has been honored by BMI as their Songwriter of the Year.

Over the years, Marsha has stayed relevant as an artist via touring, writing/producing and mixtapes like 2007’s “Neo Soul is Dead,” 2008’s “Yours Truly” and 2010’s “Yours Sincerely.”  She also appeared as a featured artist on projects from Patti LaBelle, The Game, Busta Rhymes, Jamie Foxx and Earth, Wind & Fire, among others.  Eventually, Marsha signed with Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Records; however, a much-buzzed-about solo debut never materialized due to creative glitches. Now at a strong place mentally and physically, Marsha’s ready to present her sound to the world. The first single, “Hope She Cheats on You (With a Basketball Player),” is an anthem to which women and men can relate.
