In a musical landscape of instant but short fleeting rewards, Finnian’s ascension in the Irish musical landscape is a welcome return to the more authentic evolution of an artist. Growing up in Dundalk, Ireland, Finnian has carefully nurtured his songwriting to the point where he is now being lauded by his peers as one of the most exciting talents in the country. His music is honest, concise and textured in a way which few have achieved with such conviction.
His forthcoming album is an introduction to the wider world, to an artist that many have already latched on to. Under the Influence, due in Summer 2020 is the culmination of 2 years of work which has been honed into one of the most anticipated releases of the year. Already praised for his lyrics, Under the Influence marries this lyrical prowess with a musicality that few in the genre can claim to possess. His beginnings as a folk based songwriter have now truly evolved into a fresh interpretation of the genre but also Finnian’s established standing within it.
