Flint Eastwood – Detroit’s New Musical Gem

Every so often I am sent some music by up and coming artists. There is a new artist out of Detroit, Michigan named Flint Eastwood that was put onto my radar recently.

Her music is reminiscent of Lorde. She is brand new, at least to me, but she has a polished sound. It’s definitely worth taking a listen to. Her EP is called ‘Small Victories,’ with a video for the single “Glitches” coming out soon.

Here is the press release –

Flint Eastwood‘s new EP, Small Victories, was created and polished in Detroit’s second oldest church, now repurposed as Assemble Sound, a hub of Detroit creativity that fosters artists through collaboration.  In this crumbling but inspiring location, the new record was created as a coping mechanism to help Jax deal with the loss of her mother, who was her biggest fan and inspiration.

Jax broke the EP down in one simple thought:

“Small Victories comes from the idea that doing anything creative in life takes a lot of persistence, struggle, and hustle.  It’s easy to expect that the spoils will come easily and be immediately fruitful.  But if you focus on the little things, the “small victories”, you realize that it’s those things that are the most rewarding.  That’s what keeps me going.”

The lead single is the EP’s first track, “Find What You’re Looking For”, which is Jax’s interpretation of her mother’s final words to her:

“Don’t let this break you”.
