Flynn: Impossibly Talented, Young, Homegrown Singer
Proving you don’t need a Southern drawl and a Stetson to head down dusty American trails in Johnny Flynn, an impossibly talented young homegrown singer.
His music is steeped in country, blues, folk and bluegrass traditions but his lyrics reveal a distinctly English slant. You wouldn’t catch them performing a song called Wayne Rooney in the honkytonks of Texas. Johnny’s voice is engaging, ideal for the storytelling nature of his songs. His band, the Sussex Wit, bristle with energy, horns and cello adding warmth and depth. In a music world full of surprises, Johnny is ripping up the rulebook in style.
