Award-winning, double-platinum-selling artist Mick Flannery has released seven studio albums, three of which have reached No. 1 status.
The Sunday Times says he “conjures up exquisite story-telling,” and American Songwriter called his album “In the Game” “a sorrowful masterpiece.” The record was nominated for the Choice Music Prize, and won the RTE Radio 1 song of the year two years in a row for tracks “Baby Talk” and “Chain Reaction.” The album was the biggest selling independent record in Ireland in 2021. Mick Flannery’s songs are fluent in expressing layered aspects of the human condition, its flaws, triumphs, and general uncertainty. Originally a stonemason by trade, he once described his stage presence as that of a “mountain goat,” but over the years that shy awkwardness of said mountain goat has started to dissipate. Mick’s live shows are renowned for his self-deprecating humor, audience engagement and the ability to bring people on a journey of both heartbreak and joy, often in the same instance. Mick has built up a reputation over the past decade as one of Ireland hardest-working musicians.
