As a music professional based in Devon UK, MATTHEW FINNISH is always looking for opportunities to develop his technical skills and collaborate with creative professionals. From early days and appearances on BBC's Top of the Pops with This Year's Blonde; Winner of ITV's New Faces and session guitar work, MatFin has worked on several groundbreaking projects and continue to push himself in stretching his imagination and musical boundaries. If you’d like to learn more about his inspirations, interests, or past work, get in touch today.
If you're a frequenter to the smaller tents at Cross Rhythms' Festivals past you may have seen Matt plying his trade with an acoustic guitar and a gutsy blues rock voice. But Mr Finnish is no fresh faced beginner but a music veteran, who, years back, experienced Top 20 success. Now he offers his debut Christian project and thoroughly engaging it is too. With an eclectic range of styles from retro old time boogie rock on 'Your Will Not Mine' to the Randy Newman-tinged 'Father God'. My favourites are the poignant acoustic ballad 'Wait For Me' and the eerily haunting piece of funky prog rock 'Waterfall'. With an excellent, lived in voice and a superior lyricist's winning way with image and metaphor, this is a record of a man whose faith has been caught in the crucible of pain and trial and whose art has matured and deepened as a result ~
