CHERIE FLYNN, (vocals, flute, keyboard)
Cherie has been surrounded by music from an early age and started going to see her father Terry Flynn play in bands from when she was about 3 years old. Cherie's father backed many famous jazz musicians in the 60s, such as Kenny Baker and Kathy Stobart (who was a tenor sax player in “The Ted Heath Band”.) Terry taught Cherie how to play piano.
During her teens in the 80's Cherie played flute at music festivals and concerts as a member of a Classical Baroque ensemble, and The Gosport Orchestral Society.
For the following few decades she sang and played in jazz and pop groups.
Cherie taught keyboards in a junior school for 10 years, and now teaches piano, keyboard and flute privately, as well as incorporating music technology and song writing into some of her lessons.
Cherie is one of the band's composers. Her compositions cover various genres including Funk, Jazz, Rock, Latin, and Electronic Dance Music.
