Ashleigh Flynn and The Riveters: "This Love"

Ashleigh Flynn and the Riveters' high-energy, Country Rock song “This Love” from their latest release produced by Chris Funk and recorded at the Halfling Studios in Portland.



Ashleigh Flynn & The Riveters’ press statement for their self-titled debut release reminds us that the two most famous riveters in American history (Rosie flexing on the WWII “WE CAN DO IT” propaganda poster and Norman Rockwell’s Saturday Evening Post version) arrived a year apart and in tumultuous times.

In these tumultuous times, we certainly can use all the Rosie’s we can get!

Americana/Folk artist Ashleigh Flynn, was raised in Kentucky and now resides in Portland, Oregon. She’s earned her troubadour accolades the right way, by putting in the time and the miles and telling stories that matter with conviction, and releasing 6 albums in the past 9 years.

The Riveters: Guitarist Nancy Luca grew up in Florida, studied with Heartbreaker Mike Campbell and sat in with Tom Petty’s other band, Mudcrutch. Bo Diddley picked her out for his touring band in the '90s. In Los Angeles, she’s a member of Whole Lotta Rosies.

Carmen Paradise, of the Michigan folk duo the Marvins, takes up the bass in lockstep with drummer Jolie Clausen. Kathryn Claire takes up the fiddle and Ara Lee handles backing vocals. Jenny Conlee, of the Decemberists, adds her estimable talent on the keys.
