THE ONE WITHOUT A JUMP SHOT:

Johnny Flynn On World Cafe (NPR, 12/14/10)

Harnessing inspiration from great writers such as Yeats and Shakespeare, Flynn is a connoisseur of words, which he sings with conviction and honesty. His songwriting is fleshed out by the warmly layered guitars, strings, trumpets and percussion of his band, The Sussex Wit.

Sitting down with World Cafe host David Dye, Flynn discusses everything from his rebellious roots to the process of writing his latest album. Two years after becoming the poster boy for the nu-folk scene, Flynn and his band released Been Listening in October.
