Marsha Ambrosius (born 8 August 1977) is an English singer-songwriter from Liverpool, England. She embarked on her musical career as a member of Floetry. Ambrosius later released her debut solo album Late Nights & Early Mornings in March 2011.

In 2000, the duo travelled to the United States to perform on the poetry circuit. After frequenting spoken word/poetry spots in Atlanta such as Yin Yang Poets’ Cafe (to positive reviews), 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. She also worked with Michael Jackson – she composed and sang as back-vocal the song “Butterflies”, from the album “Invincible”, released in 2001 and in 2002 it was publicated a single version of this song. In the same year, they signed with DreamWorks Records and released their debut album Floetic, which featured the singles “Floetic”, “Say Yes” and “Getting Late”.

Ambrosius has been featured on many songs including Styles P’s “I’m Black”; The Game’s “Start from Scratch” and “Why You Hate The Game.” (also featuring Nas); Busta Rhymes’ “Get You Some” and “Cocaina”; Nas’ “Hustlers” (also featuring The Game); and Hi-Tek’s “Music for Life” and Jamie Foxx’s “Freak’in Me”. The group has also collaborated with Earth, Wind & Fire on their album, Illumination, on the track “Elevated”. She collaborated once again with Slum Village called “Cloud 9”. In 2009, she guested on Wale’s “Diary”.

In summer 2009, Ambrosius was approached by numerous record labels offering her a solo deal after a long-awaited performance at NYC’s SOB’s where a sold out crowd gathered to a show accompanied by The Roots and DJ Aktive. In December 2009, Ambrosius signed to J Records and her solo debut Late Nights & Early Mornings was released on 1 March 2011. “Hope She Cheats On You (With A Basketball Player)” was released as the album’s first single on 13 August 2010. The song charted on the US Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and peaked at no. 22. “Far Away” was released as the album’s second single on 7 December 2010. The album would debut at no. 1 on the US “Billboard” Hot R&B Charts and no. 2 on the US Billboard Hot 200 behind Adele and ahead of Mumford & Sons the first time in over 20 years that British Acts had topped the US charts.

Ambrosius won the Centric Award at the BET Awards of 2011. She was also nominated for Best Female R&B Artist at the BET Awards 2012.

Ambrosius won the Record of The Year (Ashford & Simpson Songwriters Award) at the 2011 Soul Train Awards for the song “Far Away”.

In August 2011, RCA Music Group announced it was disbanding J Records along with Arista Records and Jive Records. With the shutdown, Ambrosius (and all other artists previously signed to these three labels) will release her future material on the RCA Records brand.

Ambrosius released her second studio album, titled Friends & Lovers, in July 2014. Ambrosius received two MOBO Award nominations for the album. In 2015 Ambrosius received a nomination for Grammy Award for Best Traditional R&B Performance for “As,” a collaboration she recorded with Anthony Hamilton for The Best Man Holiday.
