BIOGRAPHY

Embracing a penchant for the theatrical and a knack for poetic storytelling, Finn Anderson's songs are characterised by their lyrical intricacy and his rich baritone voice. 

Raised in Fife on the East Coast of Scotland, Finn had self-released 2 solo EPs and written his first musical before leaving school at 16 to study Music. Staging self-penned productions at his local theatre in his early teens, Finn used the profits to build a home recording studio where he began producing solo songs. After graduating from the University of Highlands and Islands age 19, Finn ventured South to complete a Masters at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Straddling various styles and genres, Finn's music has drawn comparisons to Rufus Wainwright, Patrick Wolf and Joni Mitchell. The Uncharted Lands EP was released in February 2016, accompanied by a UK-wide Living Room Tour. His latest EP Oceanic was released in April 2017, with singles 'When He's Away' and 'Some Days' receiving airplay on BBC 6 Music, Amazing Radio, regional Scottish radio and online stations across the globe.

Now 24 and based in Glasgow, Finn has created an impressive and diverse body of work. Alongside his solo songwriting, he composes music for theatre, film and art projects throughout the UK and internationally.

“Even without listening to Finn Anderson’s music, you could tell that he has something about him… Impressive doesn’t quite cover it…. Finn’s skilful use of poetic storytelling, in tandem with his knowledge of musicality, simply steal you away into a world of his own making”

"Finn Anderson could be called a musical miracle child. Already at the age of 14 he made his own recording studio in his parents' house, at 16 he had already released two EPs and moved on to music studies. Today the Scotsman is 24 years old, composes musicals and film music. Thank god there is still time for his own projects."
