Mick Flannery is widely regarded as one of the finest
singer-songwriters to come out of Ireland in recent
An award winning- double platinum selling artist, Mick
has released five albums to date - including two number
ones and received widespread airplay. He became the
first Irish musician to ever win awards at the International
Songwriting Competition in Nashville, aged 19. His critically
acclaimed live performances have seen him sell out shows
in Ireland's Olympia Theatre and Cork Opera House.
Mick first picked up a guitar at age of 14 under the
musical influence of his mother's family in their old
farmhouse in Blarney, Co. Cork where he grew up listening
to Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison,
and Jim Croce. Mick wrote songs throughout his teens,
while training as a stonemason, which culminated in
him signing to a major label at just 21 and releasing
his first album "Evening Train".
Mick's most recent albums were written in Berlin, a
move Mick himself refers to as "self-imposed exile".
His current album "I Own You", sees Mick deal
with broader issues than previous work including themes
of social injustice and inequality. Mick currently lives
in County Clare, Ireland where he is working on his
sixth studio album.
