MEET: The Man From The Box

"It's quite late now, do you want a ride home Dimi? We have loads of stuff, but there's room for you."

 I recall meeting Johnny Flynn a few months back. We were backstage; he was packing up, yet answering all my questions with immeasurable enthusiasm. Joe (his acting name) cites W. B. Yeats and Shakespeare among his influences.

At the age of 28, Joe has already been acquainted with acts such as Noah and the Whale, Laura Marling, and Mumford and Sons.

Buy his music because there is nothing more alluring than a talented, hardworking, honest musician who exudes an unpretentious working class charm.

Fast forward to 2:00 and spend the best four minutes of your day.



  1. Nice, Yeats and Shakespeare. Any thoughts on the possiblity that 'The Wrote and the Writ' based on Pope's Letters from Eloise to Abelard?
