Myra Flynn at Pianos' Upstairs Lounge

Once again introduced to an impressive new music artist through the discovery of a captivating video performance on the internet, I ventured to listen to Myra Flynn live at Pianos' Upstairs Lounge tonight. My hunch was rewarded. At Pianos, Flynn sang impressively as if she was an old-time crooner of classic r&b songs -- but backed by a rock band. Making a name for herself in the singer-songwriter circuit in her native Vermont, the young artist is courting a New York audience with a series of showcases promoting her second album, For the Record. She will perform as part of the weekly Old Soul Revival at Bowery Electric on February 6 and at the Rockwood Music Hall on February 23.
