Richard OÂśFlynn on Radiohead, Nick Drake and Elbow (video) May 21 2010 by Jade Wright, Liverpool Echo

EVERY now and again an act comes along that just shouts out ³next big thing´. Richard OœFlynn is exactly that ¹ a musician that seems just destined for success. He graduated from Lipa last summer, and has already toured around the world. Heœs currently locked away putting the finishing touches to his debut album, but weœve prised him out of the studio for our Sound City gig at Static Gallery tonight. But before all that, I caught up with Richard to find out more about the music thatœs getting him through the week. Elbow ¹ Grace under Pressure

Great songs, great arrangements and great musicians on this album. Radiohead ± Subterranean Homesick Alien

in Liverpool) Nick Drake ± River Man This song is an absolute classic from an absolute classic album (Five leaves Left).
