A blend of blues, rock, folk, and psychedelia, LA-based guitarist and singer-songwriter, Harrison Flynn, is introducing listeners to a mesmerizing sonic journey. This musical odyssey kicks off with the release of his power trio's debut single, "Coldwater Stomp" set to launch on August 31st. (pre-save here)

Straight out of a young boy's dreams in the small-town heart of Martinez, Harrison was strumming tales of life inspired by the greats: think the soulful jams of Muddy Waters, the infectious guitar riffs of The Rolling Stones, or the poetic depth of Bob Dylan. His life story is intertwined with every note, and that authenticity screams louder than any amplifier could.

Capturing the essence of Harrison's musical tapestry, "Coldwater Stomp" is a tantalizing glimpse into what fans can expect from the forthcoming album. It's an album that promises not only Harrison's unique voice but also the expertise of John Avila (Oingo Boingo) as the engineer. Fans of the "jam" element will be delighted, as both live and studio recordings emphasize this heavily.

While his move to LA at 21 saw Harrison emerging as a prolific sideman for various groups, it was the LA scene, especially the legendary Laurel Canyon neighborhood, that charmed him, reaffirming his love for classic songwriting. Together with Mars Horner on bass and Jared Cvetich on drums, the trio has carved a niche in the LA and SoCal music scene, paving the way for an eagerly anticipated album release later this year.

Harrison shares, “'Coldwater Stomp' is a culmination of everything I've learned, loved, and lived through in my musical journey. We hope this song, and those to follow, find a place in your hearts, just as the music that inspired me found a place in mine.”
