The pandemonium of recent history has afforded Saluda, NC based songwriter Michael Flynn a much needed pause for reflection. Amidst the dizzying cocktail of societal shake-ups – and the subsequent restructuring of personal values – the artist and composer isn’t the first to have found inspiration in the ruins.
Michael Flynn is a singer/songwriter with a knack for capturing life’s nuances in chipper, succinct sketches. A longtime contributor to the Charleston music scene under the moniker Slow Runner, Flynn’s latest chapter has him navigating parenthood, solo music endeavors and the new COVID realities in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Grateful Web recently caught up with the musician to discuss the changing times, his unique creative process, and his timely new album, Survive With Me.
