EVENTS ELSEWHERE / Jeff Finlin with Clive Barnes
The Voodoo Rooms
Jeff Finlin’s work is funny, insightful, playfully sardonic, and capable of exhuming archetypal musings from its listeners. It documents a vivacious spiritual path in poetry and song. In this respect, Finlin’s work represents a kind of modern day American Rumi-ism. New album ‘Life After Death’ is somewhat of a ‘best of’ or ‘an introduction to’, featuring 20 key tracks for those who have not crossed paths with this maverick and prolific songwriter. Spanning his back catalogue, this collection seeks to show the depth and diversity of Finlin’s composition, creating a full picture of him in 2016.
“Finlin writes with a minimalist grit of Sam Shepard and Raymond Carver. Tune in for an elusive magic.” (The Chicago Sun Times)
“Some folks come to Nashville, amble over to music row and look for a cookie cutter solution. Hand Jeff Finlin a cookie cutter, and he’s liable to melt it down and then forge it into something sharper and more dangerous.” (Peter Cooper, The Tennessean)
