Johnny Flynn: A Larum

Johnny Flynn
A Larum
Lost Highway Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
A Larum is the Lost Highway debut album from British singer songwriter, Johnny Flynn. The album has an absolute traditional Americana sound with a solid backing band in the Sussex Wit. Together they draw on a century's worth of Folk, Blues and Country to produce a timeless album. Like any good record, A Larum gets better with every spin and regardless of what continent Flynn is from, he is a fresh face on the folkish troubadour scene that should be watched because I only see the young artist getting better!

Key Track: "Tickle Me Pink"

Band With Similar Fire: Fionn Regan
