stomping along the Ohio River as the steamboats and
barges made their way to the muddy Mississippi. An
electrifying performer blessed with unbridled charisma,
Flynn has released two previous full-length studio
efforts, Chokecherry (2002) and Ashleigh Flynn, self-titled
(1999). The Village Voice regards Ashleigh as “A
darling of the NW Americana scene”, hailing
Chokecherry, “. . . Flynn adds a smoky soulful voice . . .
marrying styles such as bluegrass to pop.” In an effort
to capture the energy of a live show, Flynn released

Mississippi Studios recording with Portland’s
renowned alternative bluegrass band, Sneakin’ Out,
and featuring national songstress Tracy Grammer.

consequences of manifest destiny. The album is alive
with stories about down-and-outers, young and old, all
still hopeful, as is Flynn, that they can achieve the
Beguiling and wise, Flynn’s musical poetry muses on the
expansive American Dream.
