REVIEWS

Anywhere But Home

"With the recent passing of the great Pete St. John, Dubliners need have no fear. The well is not dry; Flynn is the bard to continue the canon of songs for Dublin, because every generation needs its memories and melodies."
- Seán Laffey, Irish Music Magazine


Black Coddle 


"Black Coddle, a poignant song moving with true emotional register across history, folklore and poetry; a (literal) gritty quality to the title evoking triumph over poverty where, with true Dublin savvy, a shake of black soot across the coddle-dinner on the fire from a tenement chimney was still deemed good enough to eat. And sing about!"

- Deirdre Cronin, Irish Music Magazine


 “An unlikely fusion of R&B, gospel and Irish music that sounds so natural and obvious it makes you wonder where this music has been all this time. Flynn has sensitively and ingeniously reharmonized a host of trad Irish favorites, with hauntingly affecting results. I can't describe how strongly (or why) it feels like home to me. Even if it doesn't affect you the same way, it's delightful and worthy of your attention."

- Ken Hughes, Keyboard Magazine


"An admirable addition to the catalogue of exciting new works coming from Irish artists."

- Jackie Hayden, Hot Press

The King Of The Cats 

"Immensely skilled on the piano, Flynn has an ear for voicing, for bringing out the depths of beauty of the piano. On 'The King of The Cats', he approaches both traditional Irish songs as well as some gorgeous compositions of his own. The album has a sense of introspection and meditation. Rich in harmony, expansive in sound, full of emotional depth and breadth, The King of The Cats is a journey from start to finish, one that you will enjoy. With a relaxed yet moving groove, Flynn takes us home, and how sweet that homecoming is."
