Sweet Flo


Sweet Flo is not only the name of the duo, it describes the experience. It’s a creative flow combining vocals, guitar and percussive instruments using live looping. Myoshi and Emre come from very different backgrounds but share very similar musical tastes. Their intention is to bring the existing synergy in their friendship to the stage doing what they love the most. From The Beatles, to Stevie, to Jamiroquai, to classic and current hits, they’ve chosen some of their favorite tunes and put a Sweet Flo spin on them.

As an actress, Myoshi has appeared in various commercials, in a featured role on the Tru TV show Parco, P.I., and a "Got Milk?" promo on the Oxygen Network.
With a theatre background, acting and singing have always gone hand in hand for Myoshi. Over the years, she has performed in shows throughout the United States and abroad, even singing at a star-studded event for the King of Morocco at his palace in Marrakech, Morocco. She also performed for Robert DeNiro and his wife at a party at their home. From Tokyo to New Zealand and numerous places in between, Myoshi has traveled the globe doing what she loves to do - entertain the people!
Myoshi continues to be very passionate about music. Last year, she put on her producer hat when she was called in by Motema Music to work on Who's That Lady, the latest project from Koko Jones (percussionist - Whitney Houston, Isley Brothers). In addition to co-producing the album, Myoshi is one of the lead vocalists and the vocal arranger on the project.
Laid Bare, Myoshi's brand new album, is set to release soon. Co-produced by Jesse Fischer and featuring incredible musicians, it's a project near and dear to her heart. Myoshi calls the album "Rock, soul, vintage, and new. It's a little bit of everything. Like me!" The first single, "Wasteland," is available now as a digital single.
