SONG OF THE DAY Fink – Hour Golden



“My love of Blues has always been there, before I even knew what it was…”
(Fink)

English singer, songwriter, guitarist, producer and DJ, Fink, aka Fin Greenall, is well-known for his electronic compositions and numerous writing collaborations with an array of artists including, John Legend, Banks, Ximena Sarinana, Professor Green and Amy Winehouse to name a few.

Signed to Ninja Tune, Fink has been releasing music since the early 90’s, but his latest works have taken to new realms.

Fink has spent the last few years absorbing himself in the blues which was already a passion of his, but he wanted to take it further and so started a project which would allow him to explore this.  Eager to create his own sound and not simply copy or replicate, Fink spent two solid months in 2015 immersing himself in John Lee Hooker, T-Bone Walker, Chuck Berry and numerous other blues artists so that he could live, breathe and nurture his own original take on this classic sound.

The result is something quite marvellous! Eight smouldering tracks recorded as Fink’s Sunday Night Blues Club, Vol 1 which releases this Friday!  Taken from his forthcoming album comes the intensely sizzling and sultry, Hour Golden which you can listen to above.

    Lovely tracks. Can’t hear much T-Bone Walker in there, but the John Lee Hooker influence comes across loud and clear, and that’s no bad thing!

  2. I see what you mean but I got this info from a review/press release I read about Fink and these are the influences that Fink has cited himself 😉
