Freight Train Boogie, thanks! “Released on her own Home Perm Records, Ashleigh Flynn’s latest studio album is described on her website as “true blue Americana featuring a bit of folk, blues, country and rock.”  With that type of variety, it would not be unusual to have a couple missteps or at least some issues with […]
