Sound:

Singer Songwriter and Filmmaker Rob Finlay offers a heady mix of dreamy elegant folk and classic rock with an edgy acoustic twist. Poetic song writing and soaring vocals create an epic and atmospheric backdrop for lyrical themes to which everyone can relate, and all this is wrapped up tight in a dynamic and melodic delivery.
