A songwriter of exceptional depth and poetry, Flynn is also an electrifying performer blessed with unbridled charisma and the voice of an angel
Flynn has released 2 full-length albums the last few years: Chokecherry (2002) and Ashleigh Flynn self-titled (1999). Both records we acclaimed Nationally and saw great sales independently.

Currently based in Portland, OR Flynn recently released, “Live w/ Sneakin’ Out at Mississippi Studios,” a documentation of a night spent playing with Sneakin’ Out-one of Portland’s best alternative bluegrass bands at one of Portland’s most renowned listening rooms, The Mississippi Studios.
