Where Sandyman's coming from...

Born just across the bridge from the nation's capital, Sandyman pulls from his roots deep in the Appalachian mountain range. Raised in a family that sang four part harmonies around the house, he spent over a decade touring both nationally and internationally as a founding member of the band Cullowhee. This included a stint as a staff writer at Tree Publishing (now Sony/ATV) on Music Row in Nashville.

He has performed (with Cullowhee) for audiences from 2 to 20,000, sharing the bill with the likes of Jimmy Buffett, Jerry Jeff Walker, The Four Seasons, The Kingston Trio, David Allen Coe; well, the list goes on.

Mountain Messages, Way Up in the Sky

Sandyman Flynn, aka Sandy or Brother Irish, has spent decades as a singer/songwriter, and has seen the evolution of music from the inside out.

He finds the 'Machine' music - crafted by analytics and driven to keep corporate bonuses rolling - has a big sound laden with gimmicks and predictable hooks but it's hollow at the core. Simply, he believes Love is the ultimate message, and being authentic is powerful.

Sandyman found his inspiration and real substance deep in the Appalachian mountains.

He started listening to the resonance of the earth as it calls out the cadence - followed roots winding deep down into the loamy soil, with branches above reaching to the sky...

...and he found Love really is the Answer.
