03/13 Featuring: Eamonn Flynn, Keyboard (Irish Soul)
ABOUT: Irish keyboardist, singer and songwriter Eamonn Flynn forges his own kind of Irish soul. Growing up in Dublin, he was steeped in rock 'n' roll as well as Irish songs sung around his home. He draws from both, his deftly written songs and Dublin humour buoyed by his soulful vocals and formidable piano and Hammond organ chops.
"A fusion of R&B, gospel and Irish music that sounds so natural and obvious it makes you wonder where this music has been all this time," says Keyboard Magazine.
Flynn first came to prominence playing Hammond organ and piano on the 14 million selling soundtrack of The Commitments, a film about a Dublin soul band. After moving to San Francisco in 1997 he went on to record and tour worldwide with numerous artists including Michael Franti & Spearhead, Evelyn 'Champagne' King, Elvin Bishop, Michelle Shocked, Pee Wee Ellis, Boz Scaggs, Taj Mahal, Los Lobos, Chris Cain, Anthony Paule Soul Orchestra, Curtis Salgado, Maria Muldaur, Tony Lindsay (Santana), and a decade-long stint with Meters drummer Zigaboo Modeliste. He kept a hand in Irish music working with the Black Brothers (siblings of Mary and Frances Black) and Finbar Furey. His film and TV work includes original music for The Commitments, Moonlight, Ugly Betty, Brujo, Beached, and Creative High and he's played Gospel organ at multiple Bay Area churches and is currently keyboardist at San Francisco's legendary Glide Memorial Church. He's released three albums of original songs: 'The Irish Channel', 'Black Coddle' and 'Anywhere But Home' and two solo piano albums: 'King Of The Cats' and 'Meeting Of The Waters'. As well as continuing to work as a sideman, he tours with two original projects: 'Dublinesque' and 'Dublin Soul'.
