Mick Flannery is one of Ireland’s most acclaimed songwriters and singers. The award-winning, double-platinum selling artist has released seven studio albums, three of which have reached No. 1 status in his homeland.

In the autumn of 2023, Goodtime Charlie, Mick’s eighth studio album will be released. Partnering on this release in North America with Oh Boy Records, the legendary label started by John Prine in 1981.  He is the label's first international artist.

The album is a collection of songs that summon up characters and scenes and give voice to emotions that have transformed into an album. Goodtime Charlie has more collaborative songwriting on it than any previous records. “It sparks you out of your comfort zone,” Mick says, “It opens up the neural pathways, you wonder ‘how would someone else do this?’.

Collaborators on the album include Valerie June, Tianna Esperanza, Anaïs Mitchell, Ana Egge, Justin Stanley, Adam Landry, longtime collaborator Tony Buchen and Andrew House (Christy Skulls).  

Goodtime Charlie was recorded in Cork with old friend, drummer and producer Christian Best and features long time musical companions Alan Comerford on guitar and Mikey O’Connell on bass.

“Mick Flannery has a voice for the ages, a complete Master of his craft” cited by Clash Magazine, whilst The Sunday Times said he “conjures up exquisite story-telling.”  His last album in 2021 consisted of a collection of duets with up and coming Irish artist Susan O’Neill.  American Songwriter called ‘In The Game’ a “Sorrowful Masterpiece.”  The record was nominated for the Choice Music Prize, and won the RTE Radio 1 song of the year two years in a row, the album was the biggest selling independent record in Ireland in 2021.   Mick’s debut album ‘Evening Train’ is currently in development as a stage musical, due to be back on the stage later in 2024.

Mick Flannery’s songs are fluent in expressing layered aspects of the human condition, its flaws, triumphs, and general uncertainty.  His live shows are renowned for his self-deprecating humor, audience engagement and the ability to bring people on a journey of both heartbreak and joy, often in the same instance.  

Mick has built up a reputation over the past decade as one of Ireland hardest working musicians, touring extensively at home and in more recent years abroad as his songs have been reaching folks farther afield. Ireland's best kept secret appears to be no more.
