British singer/songwriter Johnny Flynn's music is brimming over with heart, soul and intelligence. Drawing on diverse influences, including The Pixies, Vaughn Williams and anti-folk pioneer Dianne Cluck, Johnny draws on a century's worth of folk, blues and country to create a sound that dwells profoundly in the now. Acknowledging his debt to these musical traditions but never being overwhelmed by them, Flynn offers an alternative of substance to those who have grown sick of flimsy singer songwriters and their inane observations.
