Flo Perlin is a contemporary folk singer-songwriter from London, UK with Iraqi and Belarusian heritage. She has been hailed as a ‘true storyteller’ by BBC Radio 6 with a style that blends contemporary folk, jazz and soul. The songs explore themes such as family history, human nature and being good to yourself.

Flo released her first album, ’Cocooned’ in 2017, an EP ’Stories’ 2019, a single ‘Life Lives Inside’ in 2021 and a second album ‘Characters’ in July 2021. This second album led to Flo gaining a wide international audience, with her single ‘Baghdad’ gaining over 3 million streams on Spotify.

Flo was invited to do a live performance and interview on BBC Radio 2 for the Folk Show with Mark Radcliffe. She also gets regular airplay on BBC 6 Music, Folk Radio UK and other regional BBC stations.
