Johnny Flinton

Up and coming Rock n Roll/Country singer. Singing all your toe tapping, knee slapping favourites.

Johnny always enjoyed singing as a child and in 2014 decided to set up this little hobby to go around care homes and sing the songs he loved. After a number years he took a leap into the public eye and began entering into pubs and clubs. Since doing this, he has appeared along side established country singers and is still growing!

“I’m John Flinton 21 year older performer and entertainer near Norwich. I’m currently looking to set up a life long hobby of mine. I sing and play a range of classics from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s but also delve into country songs and some more modern songs too.”

As a rock n roll / country singer it’s sometimes hard to distinguish yourself. Johnny has always had an interest in loud shirts and that combined with his loud hair certainly makes him someone you won’t forget!

Any songs that you would like to hear please send me them and I’ll do my best to learn them!
