Some of you may remember Johnny Flynn and The Sussex Wit’s debut A Larum (2008) – a most notable album of the time. But it is Joe Flynn or rather, when collaborating with his other half, Johnny Flynn, who fronts the folk rock band.
Not only is Joe a rather adept musician but a very successful actor – a profession that he initially pursued in his teenage years when he attended the Bedales school. He’s branched out into music equally as he has acting, in fact, he juggles both careers. Just last year he performed in Richard III and Twelf Night at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and in the West End and found time to make a ten track recording for Brian Crane’s American indie film A Bag of Hammers. Impressive for having a newborn bubba and being recently married by age 29!
Watch Amazon Love from his second album Been Listening. What a beaut.
Joe has not got any live gigs planned currently however will be releasing his third album this year. We’ll have to wait patiently for our next instalment!
