After spending her formative years in Dublin, Ireland, and Florence, Italy, Flavia moved to Los Angeles to pursue music. With the help of her producer, Ethan Allen (Ben Harper, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Daniel Lanois), Flavia has created an EP that is a world unto itself.
Trapped between reality and ethereal dream world, Flavia’s poetic lyrics cut to the core with their vivid imagery and emotional content.
