Myra Flynn Band
Myra Flynn returns to Vermont for a special night with her Indie/Soul band that will have the audience grooving and dancing. Led by Flynn, the band includes some of Vermont’s most prestigious musicians including Andric Severance on keys, Paul Boffa on bass, Cleo Flemming on cello and Caleb Bronz on drums.
Myra is a singer-songwriter who spends her career embracing dichotomy — half Irish and half African American, working in Los Angeles while holding on to her Vermont roots. Her original indie/soul songs blend soulful vocals with a lyrical delivery that doesn’t let one get too comfortable. She is often compared with Ani DiFranco, Shawn Colvin, Rihanna and Jill Scott.
She spent her Vermont childhood clad in leopard print and platform shoes, singing and dancing atop anything that looked remotely like a stage. These days, not much has changed. She has since shared stages with Ivan Neville (Dumpstaphunk), Mike Gordon (Phish), Gabrielle Gordon (Natalie Merchant), Sonya Kitchell, Rayvon, Res, Alexa Ray Joel, Slick Rick, Anais Mitchell and Lee “Scratch” Perry.
Currently, Myra lives a bi-costal life, still holding onto her roots in Vermont while also working and living part-time in Los Angeles under the guidance of Swift Street Management Team. She has toured extensively across the United States and is currently is working on her fourth album with GRAMMY® award winning executive producer, Jared Lee Gosselin.
