Johnny Flynn news

Having recently been signed with Lost Highway Records(Ryan Adams, Elvis Costello, Fionn Regan), young UK indie-folk singer Johnny Flynn is ready to hit American shores. Lost Highway has just released his Hong Kong Cemetry EP in the US, which is a quick prelude for his debut full length album, A Larum, which will be coming out this July 29th.

Flynn, who has tackled some Shakespearian acting in his past, has an old school folk storytelling charm about his music, of which Flynn says ... he "tries to retain a sense of history and knowledge and bring it up to date". Stay tuned for Flynn to hit American shores live, as a tour is in the works.

In the meantime, Flynn and his band, The Sussex Wit have recently re-done the video for the folk stomping single "Tickle Me Pink", which features Flynn's alter-ego as a marionette.
