female alt.country duo from Groningen, the Netherlands
Once there was Sexy Dex - Holland's hottest trashrockin' garage girlgroup with harmony vocals and raw guitars - around since the early nineties of the last century and based in our beautiful Groningen. But behold! Recently an all new duo emerged from the ashes of Sexy Dex and they are called FlowerBox! A genuine love of alternative country and folk music made Henja and Carina decide to pick up their guitars once again and start to make some music. Their influences range from the Carter Family to contemporary recording artists like Freakwater and Gillian welch.
FlowerBox made their first official appearance at the Johnny Cash night in the Walrus in Groningen in december 2007 covering some classic man in black tunes like "Cry Cry Cry" and "Deliah's Gone". Since then they have expanded their list of songs considerably; expect covers from a range of artists and the occasional self written tune might creep in as well. Feel free to contact the band if you would like to book them. Check out this footage on youtube from several gigs since 2009:
