Portland, Oregon-based Ashleigh Flynn is the unique female voice that Americana music has been longing for, strong and full of soul. Set for national release on May 14, 2013; to celebrate the release of her fourth studio effort, Flynn is offering a FREE download from A Million Stars: Prohibition Rose.
“This song is about Portland’s own most infamous bootlegger during prohibition, who happened to be a woman… known also for opium distribution, and shanghaiing unsuspecting patrons.” –Ashleigh Flynn
Ashleigh Flynn awakens your soul like the new spring breeze rising from the dead of winter. Flynn is joined on this release with friends like, Todd Snider and many of Portland’s most talented musicians including, Chris Funk, Jenny Conlee-Drizos, Nate Query, John Moen, Annalisa Tornfelt, and the Stolen Sweets singers, among others.
Flynn’s peers and fellow musicians have referred to her as “True blue Americana” and a representation of the next generation of songwriters. I find her to be what Americana music was missing, a mixture of powerful female voices like Ani Difranco and Tara Nevins.
