Bio

From the rough and tumble streets of Sydney, Australia, Finn have been performing their lovingly crafted original songs and choice classics to delighted audiences both at home & abroad since 1999.

Finn’s original songs combine a lively sense of fun with razor sharp wit and deliver timely observations on such topics as the state of the world, the personal dynamic and the modern urban condition.

Their single "Live in Fear" was picked up for rotation on national television by ABC's "Rage" and Finn’s sixth album, “Bomb The World With Kindness” reached Number 4 on the Australian Rhythm and Blues charts, and stayed in the charts for an incredible 5 months in 2012.

They released their seventh album “Three To Go” in August 2014.

Audiences in USA, UK, Germany, Holland and Ireland have all been dazzled by Finn's finely honed, road tested live show and Finn were the Sydney Blues Society "Performer of the Year" for 2005, competing in Memphis in the International Blues Challenge.

Travelling far and wide to perform at local and international music festivals; Perth, Bridgetown, Goulbourn and Broadbeach, in 2014 Finn featured at the Cork Roots Festival and the Blackstairs Blues Festival in Ireland.

A live Finn gig is a dazzling blend of familiar classics and soon-to-be familiar original compositions in a crisp, road-hardened show of slick musicianship and pure entertainment. From intimate jazz bars through to raucous pubs right up to major festivals, Finn have been delighting audiences for years and show no signs of stopping.
