Mick Flannery Live at Lost Lane
Today, Aiken Promotions proudly presents two intimate shows with Mick Flannery live at Lost Lane, 10th & 11thOctober 2019. . This follows the release of double-platinum selling artist, Mick Flannery’s self-titled sixth album.
Mick began to write songs as a teenager in his home of Blarney, County Cork. As musical influences from albums by the likes of Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Joni Mitchell and Tom Waits, Mick absorbed the craft that would send him on his way into the world. At the age of 19, he became the first Irish songwriter to win the Nashville-based International Songwriting Competition, and by the time he turned 21, he had signed to a major label and released his debut album.
With his latest release, Mick touches on loose themes of ambition and the search for a meaningful life in the context of a musician’s sometimes feckless and dysfunctional lifestyle. The central character, he reveals, is someone like him, “although this person achieves more notoriety than I have. He is properly famous, and he has to deal with that.” The loose theme is just that, however. “I’m not going to hammer it home. Facets of the theme are on the album, but the story line itself isn’t an overarching one - each song can stand on its own, and not need to be part of a narrative.”
Mick Flannery has, of course, experienced and processed enough in the past fifteen years to know what his views are. He smiles when he says that for the sake of the songs he ever so slightly embroiders certain facts for creative effect.
