Spike Flynn has now released his second album of original songs - ROUGH LANDING. His first album It’s Alright claimed number 10 on the September 2010 Euro Americana charts. Rough Landing continues the high standard of songwriting fans have come to expect from Spike. Originally from Forbes in the Central West of NSW and now based in Sydney, Spike infuses home town themes with a dark urban edge and a voice that has seen it all but not become jaded. Spike's influences are the early blues, country artists such as Doc Watson, Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt. In his performances Spike often includes old blues and country material along with his own songs. He is a terrific finger style guitarist. He can be found performing around Sydney mostly and has supported local acts like Jim Conways Big Wheel and international acts such as Kristina Olsen, John McCutcheon and Peter Rowan and his Bluegrass Band.
Spike has recently been playing with his two piece band The Open Hearted Strangers.
He has a gift for poetic story telling . The songs explore life with its beauty, sorrows, joys and often have a philosophical and spiritual aspect to them. Spike's songs are songs of the mature heart, the heart that has been through the dark night and has emerged on the other side with a story to tell.
