ABI FLYNN is one of the UK’s top session and backing vocalists (gigs include stints with Soul II Soul, George Clinton and Roy Ayers) and, happily, after winning a battle with a serious cancer diagnosis, she’s back at work and readying the release of a solo EP… ‘Get Deep’.

The first single from it, ‘Courage’ (self explanatory given the personal circumstance, but yes, it was a paean to self-empowerment, faith, positivity and courage in the face of adversity) was well received and now Ms F follows it up with a second single … ‘Testament To Love’. She describes it as a bittersweet symphony of irresistible groove and haunting vocals over an orchestral soul landscape. See if she’s right by investigating… it’s out now on Bluey Maunick’s Splash Blue label
