Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit are an English folk rock band signed to Transgressive Records. They are fronted by Johnny Flynn (also known as Joe Flynn), an actor, poet and songwriter who cites W.B. Yeats and Shakespeare among his influences. He is a member of the ‘Propeller’ theatre troupe, and has acted in several plays including Twelfth Night and Richard Bean’s play The Heretic at the Royal Court Theatre (2011). Johnny Flynn has most recently taken on the role of Lee in Jerusalem, Jez Butterworth’s hit play. The group’s second album Been Listening was released through Transgressive Records on 7 June 2010, and was accompanied with worldwide touring. The record followed the debut album, A Larum released in the summer of 2008, and the Sweet William EP, which was released in the winter of 2009.

Flynn was chosen as one of Fricke’s Picks in Rolling Stone magazine, August, 2008. Critic David Fricke called his debut A Larum “marvellous” and “buoyant.” He has also been called “the next poster boy of the nu-folk scene” by the Times. Kentucky Pill was the March 30th “Hottest Record in the World” on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show.
