Spike Flynn

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.

Originally from a small town in the Central West of NSW and now based in Sydney, Spike infuses home town themes with an urban edge. Spike’s influences are the early blues, country artists such as Doc Watson, Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt. In his performances he often includes old blues and country material along with his own songs. He is a terrific finger style guitarist. Spike performs around Sydney mostly and has supported local acts like Jim Conway’s 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 won the National Songwriters Competition in Tamworth in the alt country section in 2017 for his song “Stone To Sand”.

He has a gift for poetic story telling. The songs explore life in all its permutations. Spike’s songs are songs of people who have been through the dark night and have emerged with a story to tell.

Spike has two albums released - Rough Landing and It’s Alright.

Album number three – “Time On Hold” – will be released mid 2018.
