“John Flynn’s songwriting carries a wide open heart – they are both fierce and tender.  Think Cat Stevens … with a bit more folk rock and edge.”  
– Mary Sue Twohy, SiriusXM

My little west coast tour last month was a blast.  Beth and I had a great time connecting with old friends and – since more and more of my days have been getting taken up with my guys here in Delaware -- I really enjoyed getting out and doing some back to back shows. (By the third night I wasn’t even forgetting the lyrics to my songs!)

Before heading home, Beth and I took a little side trip out to Joshua Tree and got to do some hiking in the desert--
