An emotional and creative thing happened when singer-songwriter John Flynn quit his job, moved across the country, and locked himself inside a small room for two weeks. What came out of that room was dubbed the Morning on Fire, brought to life with the help of fellow musicians Josh Anderson, Ryan Burdick, and Ryan Bradley.
