If you enjoy the music of Brandi Carlile, Patty Griffin or Nanci Griffith, you’re sure to fall in love with singer/songwriter Ashleigh Flynn. Not only is Flynn a talented musician, with stellar vocals, she’s most notably gifted storyteller with a vibrant and upbeat stage personality. She’s been busy touring the US and Europe, playing festivals such as Bumbershoot, Bonnaroo and opening for John Hiatt, Shawn Colvin, the Wood Brothers, and Todd Snider.

Flynn just released A Million Stars, her fifth album. The album is full of stories of powerful women, including those from the American Western Frontier and a cover of Ma Rainey’s gay and proud “Prove it On Me Blues.” There are other gay-positive surprises on the album, including a gay-positive rap for LGBT teens. Ashleigh took a few moments to talk with Lesbian Life about her music.
