Deirdre Flint is a Philadelphia-based singer-songwriter. She writes songs about the trials of being an introvert, the Failed Metric Coup of 1975, horrendous bridesmaids dresses and all the warped and wonderful experiences of adolescence.

She is mostly seen as the bass player for the 27 year strong group "The Four Bitchin' Babes."  She has the third longest tenure in the group. They can't seem to kick her out. The Four Bitchin' Babes is comprised of Sally Fingerett, Debi Smith, Deirdre Flint, Christine Lavin, Megon McDonough, Nancy Moran and more. Yes that's more than four. Deirdre grew up with new math. Deirdre has released three CDs with the group. She has two solo CDs. 

The Background: After sixteen years of Catholic Schooling, Deirdre finally went secular and received her Masters Degree in Elementary Education from The University of Pennsylvania. She’s taught elementary school in California, Washington DC, Philadelphia and New Jersey.

She also spent a year and a half in Kongju Korea, teaching college English at the Kongju Junior College. While there, she began doing open mics in Taejon Korea. Upon moving back to the states, Deirdre plunked down the money she had saved in Korea to make her first CD – The Shuffleboard Queens. Because once you have a masters degree from Penn and a steady job, the most responsible thing to do is quit it and become a folksinger.  The CD  THE SHUFFLEBOARD QUEENSwas produced at Michael Comstock’s Indre Studios in Philadelphia. Her debut CD was one of the most played CDs that year on the Folk DJ list, due in large part to the brilliance of her producer, Greg Horne of Knoxville, TN

Deirdre won the Kerrville New Folk Award and the Falcon Ridge Showcase. While at Kerrville, she met Sally Fingerett, founding member of The Four Bitchin’ Babes. A few years later, a slot opened up and Deirdre happily  joined the latest lineup of the band Past members have included Cheryl Wheeler, Mary Travers, Patty Larkin, Julie Gold and Camille West.

 Deirdre’s music has been heard on World Café, Gene Shay’s Folk Show,  Nip/Tuck, TLC’s A Dating Story, TLC’s Documentary “Always a Bridesmaid,” BBC’s The Reclaimers, The Dr. Demento Show, as well as a smattering of radio stations that you find down on the left hand side of the dial.
