Irish born singer/songwriter Carl Finlay’s music is guaranteed to be the most unique and infectious thing you are likely to hear this year. An unusual and fresh blend of Folk, Rock and Reggae delivered with a beautiful Irish accent. Citing an eclectic spread of influences from Bob Dylan and James Blake to obscure Reggae and Folk artists, his music manages to be at once strikingly individual while remaining intimate and captivating.
Born in the countryside of Co. Meath, Ireland, Finlay hasn’t been shy to spread his wings and explore some of the most exciting corners of the world, he has recently returned from the Caribbean and has spent time living in Mexico and Slovakia. His worldly experiences transpire beautifully through his thoughtful and emotive story-telling lyrics.
Carl Finlay is poised to set the music world alight. Hot on the heels of the success of his previous single ‘So Hard to Be Happy’, which received BBC Radio 6 airplay, Carl Finlay has announced the release of his second single, ‘Mercury’ and his debut album, ‘Follow the Moon’, which will drop on the 30th of March 2015
