JOHN FLYNN

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bb-J67d6gSs#t=72

In an era of deep division, John Flynn's songs call us together as they speak for the wounded, the weary, and the afflicted, the prisoner; for the prisoner, the soldier, and all the forgotten ones who walk unseen in our midst. Fusing the vision of an activist with the unblinking eye of a truth-teller, John Flynn's music speaks deeply to the heart and the spirit. A wordsmith and poet of rare clarity, he evokes our shared humanity as he addresses the times we live in through songs that resound with awareness, irony, humor and compassion.

The open heartedness and resonant decency in Flynn's work have made him a staple of Phil Ochs Song Nights across the country, and brought him the respect and friendship of longtime heroes like Kris Kristofferson and Arlo Guthrie. Sally Millbury Steen of Pacem in Terris calls John Flynn "A troubadour of justice, mercy and hope."

 

WILL OVERMAN

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnfslYiye64

Will Overman is a 20 year old American-folk musician from Virginia Beach, Virginia who is inspired by the simple joys in life and the sadness that makes those joys that much better. His music is simple songs yet true to the heart that is inspired by the world around him. Will writes his music so that he can connect with his fans in an emotional way and wants to be that artist that you can listen to his music and listen to his song and realize, this song “understands me”.

"This guy features one of the best voices in folk that I've featured on Beat Dropping. Will embodies the folk and singer/songwriter genres - getting recognized and blowing up only seems natural". - - Hobbs Maker, Beat Dropping

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
