Mick Flannery is a 25 year old stone mason who was brought up on a farm outside Blarney, Co. Cork. His first real connection to music was watching an unplugged Nirvana covering Bowie’s The Man Who Sold the World. After a stint in a music college in Cork, he travelled to the U.S. where he ‘wandered around for a time.’ While there, he entered the U.S. Songwriting Competition in Nashville, Tennessee and, to his surprise, won two top awards for his compositions.

If asked, Mick adamantly refuses to talk about himself. The best you’ll get from him on any given day is, maybe, an admission that he’s a bit ‘grumpy’, he enjoys a good game of poker, and he’d love to own a Gibson® ES-335.

So, if you’re determined to get up close and personal with Mick Flannery, you’re gonna’ have to kick back and listen to his music because that’s where he actually talks about himself. Mick writes all of his songs (words and music) and plays both piano and guitar.
