ASHLEIGH FLYNN & THE RIVETERS PRESS

"Ashleigh Flynn & the Riveters come out of the gate rocking on the self-titled Ashleigh Flynn & the Riveters. The inner sleeve carries the tagline, “song assembled here,” and that’s no lie. The band rocks steady on “This Love” and “Cold Black Line” and pulls it back to some measure pop-inflected balladry on “Too Close to the Sun.” Guitarist Nancy Luca is an underrated shredder, and just hearing her tear it up on these songs is worth the price of admission." - No Depression - Looking Back on a Year of Music

"Flynn proves she isn't afraid, either. She flexes her muscles on this album just like Rosie the Riveter did on the World War II poster that encouraged women to show their strength outside the comforts of their own homes. The performance segment — shot in June at Halfling Studios in Portland, Oregon — gives a hint of the tenacious swagger of the group." - PopMatters Video Premiere

"Ashleigh Flynn and the Riveters have made an impressive Americana album that is as feel-good as they come. It would be a perfect soundtrack to a Friday night bonfire, a Monday morning drive to work, or a ramblin’ road trip. The women’s obvious camaraderie brings the project a unique and organic energy. It’s apparent that these musicians love to play together and the mastery of both their vocals and instruments make it a joy to hear. The entire record sounds like a party - and everyone is invited." - Curve

No Depression Editors Pick

"Though always outspoken, Flynn has upped the volume for her latest project, Ashleigh Flynn & The Riveters. Inspired by the iconic World War II-era “Rosie the Riveter” imagery and the 2016 presidential election, The Riveters offer up a soundtrack of empowerment for the modern era" - The Bend Bulletin

"Flynn and her cohorts take that same sassy, aggressive attitude, laying down a kickass sound that seems to be a rallying cry for women to rise again during these uncertain political times." - Glide Magazine

The Bluegrass Situation "The Sound Of Bells" Song Premiere.

"The playing is very strong throughout with the guitar driven riff of This Love repeated on tracks like Cold Black Line and You Will Remember. The Pop sound of tracks like The Sound Of Bells, Too Close To The Sun and One Moment is replaced by the slow groove of Shrouded Sun and the influence of country roots returns on the final tracks with High On A Mountain and the standout Big Hat, No Cattle sealing the deal." - Lonesome Highway

"...a wonderful album mixing rock, country, and folk, and featuring some damn fine songwriting." - Michael Doherty's Music Blog

"The all-girl Oregon band’s self-titled debut on Home Perm Records absolutely ROCKS with 10 originals played and sung with ball-crushing intensity." - Goldmine Magazine

"Country-laced roots charged with abundant chick-rock energy is this Portland-based outfit’s stock in trade.  More than a little pop savvy is present as well on the screaming-for-airplay “Too Close To The Sun”. - Roots Music Report

"Solid rocking melodic rockers that also fearlessly explore their roots side, this bunch has rock cred and writing smarts that show this is for real and not a show. A winning set throughout." - Midwest Record

"In these tumultuous times, we certainly can use all the Rosie’s we can get!" - Oregon Music News
