The performance marks the first opportunity to see Florence K live in Toronto since the release of her album I’m Leaving You.

Florence returns with I’m Leaving You, a highly anticipated album under Universal Music Canada created in mostly in Los Angeles with Grammy winning producer Larry Klein. The album plunges listeners into a rich sonic universe, where Rock meets Blues as horns and guitars are subtly blended together.
