A recording / performance name of Brighton, UK’s Fin Greenall - a Bristol-born understated singer-songwriter. He is an uncompromising artist - in acoustic folk / blues / dub - with an astounding stage presence, signed to Ninja Tune Records. With live accompaniment by Guy Whittaker (bass) & Tim Thornton (drums), they have played over 300 shows, in the last three years (inc’ supporting Zero 7 & Massive Attack). In addition to his performance history, Fink has written with many (inc’ John Legend & Amy Winehouse), plus remixed Elbow, Nina Simone, & Robert Belfour. Prior to all of this, Greenall - who grew up in the same city as Roni Size, Portishead & Massive Attack - was a Ninja Tune DJ, spinning trip-hop & breakbeat internationally.
Fink’s 2006 debut Biscuits For Breakfast (recorded entirely in his loft in Brighton) saw him reincarnated to become Ninja Tune’s first singer-songwriter. Such was the impact of this collection of songs on the underground British musical landscape, iDJ Magazine stated: “If ‘Blue Lines’ was about Generation X’s experience of house parties, hip-hop and smoking drugs then this astonishing album is its millennial equivalent.”
