His influences often follow artists like Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Neil Young, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan as well as bands like The Replacements and The Clash also play a part. The other key aspect of Flanagan's influences are the working musicians of Northeast Ohio, whom he studies and learns from on a weekly basis. He fronts a rock & roll band called Ray Flanagan & The Authorities, and has opened for artists such as Train, Dennis DeYoung, Tim Reynolds, Low Cut Connie, and Chuck Prophet & The Mission Express.
Gretchen Pleuss - "as with some of her proudly stated musical heroes, which include Nick Drake, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, and Ani Difranco, Pleuss keeps the music above the standard, three-chord, coffee-house troubadour sound with some cool chord progressions (a la Mitchell) and grooves. She also trusts her lilting melodies enough to use her quiet, emotive alto to sell her lyrics." - Malcolm X Abram, The Akron Beacon Journal
To date, Pleuss has played at an array of venues throughout the United States, Canada, the UK, and Ireland and opened for prominent acts such as Lisa Loeb, Chely Wright, Damien Jurado, and Griffin House. Pleuss' discography includes two E.P.'s and two full-length albums. Recently featured in American Songwriter and No Depression publications, she has made a name for herself in the beginning stages of what's sure to be a lasting career.
