Hey I'm Finn, a youth from New Zealand, living in the UK. I play guitar, violin, sing and I have good go at the piano and play with whatever electronics I can get my hands on.

I spent my childhood travelling around music festivals in a house bus. I fell asleep every night to my mum's singing, and spent my days with music always around in some way or another.  After picking up violin at six, I would gate-crash the stage my dad ran whenever I could. And through this I jammed with jazz trios, reggae groups, drunk trianglists and everything in between.

At eleven I started playing the guitar and writing my own music. My love for jazz and the theory of harmony was sparked by my first teacher, who I went on to take Grade 8 with when I was thirteen, and then later a teaching diploma.

Shortly after this I moved to England and spent all my busking money on an acoustic guitar. Then, I put it in a weird tuning and started hitting it, and hence... joined a beautiful community of fingerstlye guitarists.

This niche playing style has taken me to bootcamps in Austria and radio shows in Vienna. It also recently scored me a place at Conservatoire, funding, endorsments and studio time which will be sending a few singles your way in the coming months.

I am now 18 and find myself consumed by making music whenever, wherever, with whoever, however I can:  Weddings, Festivals, Sessions, Ensemble work, Music for Film/Games, Open Mics, Car Parks and Private concerts for my dog are all a part of my life and I am excited for wherever it goes.
