"Motter Flynn hopes to fly in Kanye's Orbit"

“[Motter Flynn] is inspired mainly by the grandeur of U2, with its guitar sounds coming from the likes of the Smashing Pumpkins and its melodies influenced by Radiohead.” -

"Motter Flynn is the best and most..."

"Motter Flynn is the best and most promising young band in Cleveland."
---Jim Mileti, WHK 1420 AM; and Owner of The Winchester Music Hall (Voted Best of Cleveland by Cleveland Magazine and hailed as "The west-side's premier music venue" by the Cleveland Plain Dealer.) - Jim Mileti
