Song Premiere

@ Bluegrass Situation

October 13, 2020

Covid-19 pandemic response. This tune gorgeously captures the mood of the early days of lockdown – and all the angst (and hope?) of Spring 2020. Recorded remotely by individual band members. Produced, arranged, engineered and mixed in LA by electric guitarist Nancy Luca.

Balcony Show

@ The Crystal Ballroom 

September 3, 2020

BLACK LIVES

MATTER

July 4, 2020

In a visceral reaction to continued police brutality targeting citizens of color in the US, Flynn recorded a raw acoustic performance of 2008's critically-acclaimed "American Dream", paired it with a powerful photographic narrative and released this video across social channels on so-called Independence Day.

TINY DESK

CONTEST ENTRY 

*** New Song And Music Video ***

This blues/rock ditty "Six Feet Apart" was penned by Flynn in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Each Riveter added tracks from their home studios and contributed video clips of their pajama-clad performances. Nancy Luca mixed the audio and Kat Nyberg edited the band collage.
