Michael Flynn is a Charleston-based singer/songwriter/falconer who for the last decade has been one half of the band Slow Runner. His songs have been featured on shows like Grey’s Anatomy and Shameless, and on commercials for useful products like cars and shampoo. He’s also won a few awards for songwriting, including 1st runner up for the John Lennon Songwriting Scholarship in 2001.  Slow Runner has released 4 full length albums, an EP, and several singles. They spent some time on one of SonyBMG’s labels and have toured internationally with acts like Josh Ritter, Built to Spill, The Avett Brothers, William Fitzsimmons, and many others. This year marks Michael’s first release as a solo artist with ‘Face in the Cloud’. He tries to make electronic music that has an organic heart, and sometimes it works. Sometimes it’s a total train wreck.

“Musically, Face in the Cloud is not a radical departure in style from the last Slow Runner album, 2011′s Damage Points. Drum machines and keyboards still abound, and Flynn’s falsetto still steals the show on the choruses. But where Slow Runner often leaned on a chintzy Casiotone to supply inflections and even ventured into chiptune territory on Damage PointsFace in the Cloud is lusher and warmer. The difference is partly owed to Brooklyn-based producer Villain Lighting, who took MIDI files from Flynn’s home recordings and ran them through his own arsenal of analog synthesizers and drum machines.” ~ Charleston City Paper
