Flynn’s latest studio effort, A Million Stars, on her own Home Perm Records, represents true blue Americana featuring stories of important pioneering women that history has largely overlooked. It is produced by Chris Funk, her longtime friend and musical collaborator, best-known as the Decemberists’ multi-instrumentalist. The record features Todd Snider and many of Portland’s most talented musicians including, Chris Funk, Jenny Conlee-Drizos, Nate Query, John Moen, Annalisa Tornfelt, and the Stolen Sweets singers, among others.
