Irish singer-songwriter Mick Flannery announced his signing to John Prine’s Oh Boy Records, making him the first international artist to join the legendary label’s roster.
Flannery also announced fall tour dates kicking off on September 21 at the annual Americanafest in Nashville, TN, with a highly anticipated show at New York’s Le Poisson Lounge on September 26.
Regarding the signing, Flannery stated: “I can hardly believe that my latest album will be released on John Prine’s label. I have loved John Prine’s songs for a long time now. That those who John loved and trusted have put their faith in me is something I will never forget.”
A former Stonemason renowned for his singular voice and immediate songwriting, switched his craft from rock to words, and became a household name in Ireland. His second studio album White Lies went platinum in Ireland, and was nominated for the Choice Music Prize. His recent duets album with Susan O’Neill saw another Choice Music Prize nomination, and became the best-selling independent record in Ireland in 2021. Flannery’s debut album Evening Train is currently in development as a stage musical, due to be back on the stage later in 2024.
The label will release Flannery’s forthcoming album Goodtime Charlie, set for release on September 15 via Oh Boy Records.
