CRAIG FINN – ” A Legacy Of Rentals “

Posted: April 25, 2022 in MUSIC

Best known as the singer of the Hold Steady, Craig Finn is a Minnesota-bred singer, songwriter, and guitarist based out of New York City. Combining literary influences like Jack Kerouac and John Berryman with the musical influences of Bruce Springsteen and fellow Minnesotan Paul Westerberg, Finn’s highly descriptive lyrical style has a strong focus on narrative, crafting whole worlds for the people in his songs to exist within.

‘A Legacy of Rental’s’, is the 6th solo record from Finn, was produced by Josh Kaufman and recorded by D. James Goodwin at The Clubhouse recording studio. Compared to past solo releases, this collection was recorded with the help of a 14-piece string section including violins, violas and cellos, instead of the usually horn-heavy sounds that Craig and The Hold Steady are known for. The themes of the record explore memory, how we remember our loved ones, the places in our lives that have changed, and recent events that are part of our past.

Very pleased to announce Craig Finn and The Uptown Controllers will be returning to Europe and the UK for dates this Fall in support of my new record A LEGACY OF RENTALS. We’ll start in Denmark and make our way to the UK and Ireland. It’s our first trip over since 2019 and we are excited to share new and old songs with you.
