Finnian Announces Debut Album Release

After 3 extremely successful single launches, Finnian is now announcing his debut album ‘Under The Influence’ will be released everywhere July 24th. 

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 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.

The recording of ‘Under The Influence’ was a typically ambitious project. Not content with the honesty of his message, ‘Under The Influence’ was recorded directly to tape in Black Mountain studios under the guidance of Producer Peter Baldwin and Grammy Award Winning engineer Ben Kane (D’Angelo, The Roots, Nora Jones, Emily King). It also sees him collaborate with some of Ireland’s finest talent including Jess Kav of Barq and Booka Brass to name a few. While the process mirrors the validity of the forgotten vulnerable approach of creativity it also rejects any of the short cuts now accepted within modern music. Each of its nine tracks crafted to express a stand alone expression of real human emotion and carved from his own experience. ‘Under The Influence’ knows that live performance is the real way in which music should be consumed. It is a work that effortlessly displays the vitality of his critically acclaimed live performances this year with David Keenan and many others.
