Flynn is an amazingly talented and passionate Boston-based musician originally hailing from Greystones, County Wicklow, Ireland.
With his guitar in one hand and suitcase in the other, Flynn set off to America to pursue his musical dreams in the fertile Boston music scene. Flynn quickly set out to making his dreams a reality when he co-founded the band “Cliffs of Dooneen”. The band rapidly gained notoriety amongst thousands of Boston bands garnering several high profile Boston Music Awards including “Best Rock Band” and “Best Album” while selling out every venue in town. A major label record deal soon followed with a smash debut album, “The Dog went East and God Went West” (BMG/Critique). The first single, “Through an Open Window” became an immediate radio hit landing in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Modern Rock charts.
Flynn’s music career path seemed to derail when a near fatal fall from a ladder put him in the hospital for weeks followed by months of rehabilitation to regain feeling and movement in his arms and legs; more importantly to Flynn, his ability to play music. Flynn kept his musical passion and desire intact; and amazingly wrote and produced his first solo CD “On Your Way” which was released 2 years to the date of his accident. This release would earn him another Boston Music Award for “Outstanding Debut Album of the Year”, quite a feat in Boston, one of the most highly competitive American music scenes.
Flynn’s subsequent self produced releases included “Let The Show Begin”, “An American Wake”, and “The Answer’s Not Enough” (Black Wolf Records) all garnered critical acclaim and commercial success. His latest releases reflect Flynn’s American journey, love, and fatherhood with an honest and emotionally powerful view of life.
