Like the Ohio to muddy Ol’ Miss, Ashleigh Flynn has followed her troubadour heart. A prolific songwriter and a performer blessed with unbridled charisma, Flynn grew up in Kentucky and cut her teeth on local bluegrass music and Motown.
With a fresh slate of songs in her arsenal, Flynn returned to the studio in 2017 to develop a bold new project: Ashleigh Flynn & the Riveters. In both name and spirit, this all-female band is a nod to the “Rosie the Riveter” archetype and an homage to the millions of American women who entered this country’s male-dominated workforce during World War II and kicked some serious ass. The record hearkens back to early Stones and ‘70s psychedelic country rock, the result feels simultaneously new and necessary.
