Drawing on various sources from the historical hotbeds of the genre like Memphis, New Orleans, and St. Louis, Quality Shine captures the infectious fun of the music.

About Ashleigh Flynn and Annalisa Tornfelt
Ashleigh Flynn's finest album, American Dream, is alive with stories about down-and-outers, young and old, all still hopeful, as is Flynn, that they can achieve the American Dream.
From Kentucky, Ashleigh Flynn grew up foot stomping along the Ohio River as the steamboats and barges made their way to the muddy Mississippi. An electrifying performer blessed with unbridled charisma and the voice of angel, Flynn has released two previous full-length studio efforts, Chokecherry (2002) and Ashleigh Flynn, self-titled (1999). The Village Voice regards Ashleigh as "A darling of the NW Americana scene", writing: "Flynn adds a smoky soulful voice ... marrying styles such as bluegrass to pop."
Flynn has traveled near and far, touting her tunes, and amassing new fans in markets all over the US & Europe - including month long "up and comers" residencies at The Living Room and Pianos in New York City, and Toad in Cambridge, and a few trips across the pond.
