FLYNNVILLE TRAIN: A "band of brothers" in music who produce a sound and a show that will hit fans like a freight train.

Toby Keith: “When I saw them live, they were more than I could have expected and I signed them on the spot.” 

Such was his description of FLYNNVILLE TRAIN, who were also signed to his management team as well as his Show Dog label.  The deal resulted in two charted singles on the Billboard chart and a number 22 spot on the “Heatseeker” Billboard chart. 

Having now amicably parted ways with the label, the band continues to electrify audiences with their live stage show and is taking their music to the world.   In July 2011, Flynnville Train stole the show at the 24th Craponne Festival in France, whipping a crowd of 12,000 into an all-out frenzy with their powerful, hard-driving Southern rock and country music.  In July this year they will play the Mragowo Festival in Poland and are planning a new album release this summer on Dream Records, coupled with extensive tours in the United States.  

"It's time to get out there again and show the world who we are," say brothers Brian and Brent Flynn.  

Labeled by their fans as "America's band," Flynnville Train's music spans multiple genres and their electrifying live show hooks fans of all ages.  They are as comfortable sharing the stage with  superstars like Toby Keith, Blake Shelton, Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley and Jake Owen as they are with acts such as Iron Butterfly, Molly Hatchett and the Marshall Tucker Band. It is also seldom that such a unique and powerful live sound can be captured in the studio from three musicians and a lead singer, but with a band as awesome and talented as this, they proved it was possible, as evidenced by their two previous albums.  Flynnville Train is an irresistible, powerful, hard driving combination of Southern rock and country, with heart-stopping guitar riffs and nostalgic vocals as gritty as a long dirt road.  From start to finish, their unique sound captivates the listener, whether live or on CD and their sound and style has no boundaries.  

Formed by brothers Brian and Brent Flynn, the band comprises Brian Flynn on lead vocals, Brent Flynn on lead guitar and harmony vocals (a natural  blend unique to brothers), Tommy Bales on drums, now with the band for over thirteen years and voted Number one most up-and-coming drummer in Modern Drummer magazine in 2009 and Joseph Shreve on bass, who met the brothers through a mutual friend and whose influences are drawn from Rush and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Together, they form a "band of brothers" in music, with each bringing something unique to the sound that comprises FLYNNVILLE TRAIN.   


The Flynn brothers, Brian and Brent, were raised by hard working parents in a Christian family of farmers and factory workers in Indiana, so can totally relate to the working class of America and the world. Their father played in a band in his spare time - Grandma played the fiddle.  Both brothers inherited their natural gift of music– Brian (lead vocals) is also an accomplished drummer.  His brother, Brent (who has perfect pitch), is able to play any stringed instrument but electric guitar became his prime instrument.  Brent was five years old when he got his first guitar. His breath-taking guitar riffs and fills are delivered in an iconic fashion invoking the spirit of the likes of Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton and other guitar heroes.  

When they go into the studio, they record most songs “live” like the 60’s and early 70’s, hence the “real” sound that they create.  The brothers are very close and also write together.  Brian pens most of the the lyrics and Brent the melodies. They have written with partners such as Richard Young from the Kentucky Headhunters and recorded songs from legendary writer Craig Wiseman. It’s music that is timeless, gets into your soul and moves your spirit.  Brian and Brent Flynn state: “Now we are able to carve our own destiny, which we never could before.  We are building a team of strong in-house people who believe in us and will be part of our extended family.  We are all good and honest people who are prepared to work hard.  Our goal is to take our music to the world and, no matter where we perform, the key is that we give everyone a great time. We want to be remembered wherever we play.”
