Mick Flannery Bears His Soul on This Live Rendition of "How High" (premiere)

Irish singer-songwriter Mick Flannery sinks into an evocative acoustic arrangement of his latest hit "How High".

At just 21-years-old, Ireland's Mick Flannery left his job as a stonemason to accommodate his burgeoning career as a successful singer-songwriter. Thirteen years later, Flannery has become the pride of his country and one of the most acclaimed Irish music artists in recent times. Known for his emotionally-layered songwriting, the artist is gearing up for what is sure to be a brilliant North American tour following the release of his latest album, I Own You, out now on Universal.

Prior to this, Flannery is debuting a live version of his song, "How High", from the album. With just a piano as his only musical partner, Flannery commits to sinking into the soulful swaying of his acoustic arrangement straightaway. The song is a look into the world at large, on humanity and its flaws, and he carries it with as warmth and passion as his fans of come to know him for.
