"Ciaran Flynn"

If, like us, you like your folk on the maudlin side of existential inquiry, then this EP should serve many an evening of melodic introspection. New York Sessions deals in simple, beautiful and declarative songs, stripped of artifice; such as 'Stay The Night', which is accompanied by a violin that lends itself to the track's minimalism.

In 'Fabulous People', Flynn considers the artificial construct of the world of the glitterati, and the isolation felt from without. This, and more highly-wrought vignettes of the emotional entanglements of which he tries to make sense.

Ciaran Flynn is an Irish songwriter usually seen around the world with a guitar and a boarding pass.

The people and places that Ciaran encounters on his travels feature in a lot of his songs; his version of political and social commentary reflect intimate moments in his own life or adopt the circumstance of others close to him.

Musical influences come from Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Tom Waits, Andy Irvine, Woody Guthrie, Tom Paxton, Bruce Springsteen and Luke Kelly.

Though based in Dublin 's inner city, Ciaran can be found performing in Ireland, New York, Scandinavia, Scotland, England and beyond; all the time writing songs and dreaming up his next journey while leaving trails of critical acclaim and radio airplay in his wake.
