Mick Flannery is a multi-platinum selling artist. To date, Mick has released eight studio albums, three of which reached No. 1. His latest full length 'In The Game', a collaboration with Susan O'Neill, was the biggest independent selling record in Ireland in 2021. His debut album 'Evening Train' is now a stage musical and will make its North American debut in the fall of 2023. Mick has been described by Clash magazine as ‘a complete master of his craft’ whilst The Sunday Times says of his songwriting that he 'conjures up exquisite story-telling’. Mick is often cited as one of Ireland's most gifted songwriters to date.
When conceiving Between Us, Ana Egge knew she wanted to do something new and different for her 12th album. The process started early in the pandemic, when she began collaborating online with Irish singer-songwriter Mick Flannery, whose path she had crossed at festivals over the years. They would FaceTime regularly for two-hour songwriting sessions. “It was so fun, and the writing happened so easily — it was almost eerie,” Egge admits. “Almost every time we’d meet up, we would write a whole song.” Nine of Between Us’ 11 songs came from these virtual sessions. They wrote so many songs, in fact, that Flannery, himself an award-winning musician, is doing his own album including some of their collaborations.
