Country Mile: an interview with the multi-talented folk singer Johnny Flynn

Johnny Flynn is back with a beautiful new album, inspired by long walks and becoming a father.

Johnny Flynn is now a husband and a father, as well as an actor and musician. His many roles have inspired Country Mile, his first album in some years, and one which returns to his roots as a relaxed storyteller - relating journeys, both real and literal, in acoustic style. The result is a sonically beautiful yet raw selection of songs that will keep you warm through those long dark winter nights. I particularly love his title track, which is accompanied by a suitably lo-fi video that follows Johnny's travels across hill and dale.
