Born in Dublin, Ireland Eamonn Flynn played B3 and piano on the 14 million selling soundtrack for the movie 'The Commitments'. Since moving to the U.S. he has toured and recorded with Michael Franti and Spearhead, Maria Muldaur, Elvin Bishop, Evelyn 'Champagne' King, Zigaboo Modeliste, The Black Family among a long list of artists.
He released his first solo album of Irish music in 2017. Entitled 'The Irish Channel' after the historically Irish neighborhood in New Orleans, it featured Eamonn singing and playing a collection of both original songs and reimagined Irish favourites. He's currently finishing up work on his follow up album with a who's who of Irish and American musicians and will be touring in support of the new release.

SOULSTICE- “Uillean piper Todd Denman and B-3 player Eamonn Flynn are mirror images: Todd an American who grew up with funk and R&B and mastered traditional Irish piping, Eamonn an Irish who grew up with trad Irish music and later mastered funk and R&B Hammond. Soulstice is 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. Denman and Flynn have 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."
