Flynn releases his phenomenal debut EP-"One of Us"
The sensational Flynn talks to us regarding his debut EP “One of Us” and reveals other significant insights into his music journey in a really fun interview with Deception Magazine.
Hi there Flynn. Thanks for joining us on Deception Magazine! As we are facing this unfortunate pandemic, how are you managing to stay creative during a situation like this?
I won’t lie, it’s been really tough but I think all this spare time has given me the opportunity to really go through everything with a fine tooth comb and just really focus on what music I want to make/put out etc.
Your recent track, “B-Side”, dwells deep into the personal aspects of your artistic approach. How was the process like exploring a theme like heartbreak and creating an art out of it?
Like a massive weight off my shoulders to be honest! I think music is the best form of expression and writing this song really helped me to move on from the situation and clear the air in a way.
Were there any complications that you dealt with during the production stage of the track? If so, how did you overcome them?
Surprisingly not! luckily, this one just all seemed to fall into place.
Did your initial visualization of the track match up with the final outcome?
Yeah absolutely! I wanted the record to be uplifting and fun to take away from the slightly negative concept of the song and I think we achieved that!
What kind of reaction are you looking forward to receive from your fans regarding the track?
Hopefully a good one! I guess if it lifts their mood and helps them put a positive spin on a bad situation I’d be happy
Having grown up in Mullingar, would you say that your experience living in Mullingar affected your music somehow?
One hundred percent. A lot of my songs are about coming of age and how important home is to me, so growing up in a small rural town in Ireland definitely inspired the majority of my music. I have a lot of memories of the place (good and bad)
Having created some songs entirely out of personal experiences and feelings, was there ever a moment where you felt so personally connected to a track that you started having second thoughts about putting it out to the public?
Not really, I think to be an artist you have to be honest and write from the heart. People want that sort of stuff, and in a way it’s kind of therapeutic and helps you put the bad experiences behind you.
What’s next for you Flynn? Any plans on future projects/collaborations that you would like your fans to know about?
Quite a lot going on actually. I’m releasing my first EP in October so I’m really excited for that!
Lastly, is there any message that you would like to convey to your supporters from all around the world?
Just that I appreciate them all so much for the continuous love and support! It would be hard to keep going without it.
