Rory Flynn has been writing songs for over 20 years. Initially just lyrics, but melodies came later. He is a versatile writer, able to compose an entire song on his own with either a guitar or piano, co-write in groups or with just one other person. Over the past three or four years Rory has also started to work with producers writing topline to their backing tracks. One of these producers is an up and coming talent from the US called Mynority. To date Rory has had three songs signed, two of his own, "Hangover" & "Check Mate" plus a song he co-wrote with composer Simon Kay called "Nothing In Between". It was pitched to One Direction, but sadly their people passed on it.
Rory's influences range from Bacharach/David and the Beatles to more contemporary writers such as Diane Warren, Guy Chambers, Cathy Dennis and Ryan Tedder.
