What people are saying…
Rob Finlay’s compositions have been originally created and brilliantly performed. There’s no room for doubt that his musical influences have touched him deeply to become a passionate songwriter.

Rob Finlay’s single Stone Dead and Rising proved popular with readers of my Fresh On The Net Blog and among listeners of our BBC Introducing Mixtape where I featured it the following week. In my view the greatest challenge he currently faces is being perceived as a “singer-songwriter” – a label all too often used an excuse for sloppy writing, indifferent singing and lazy arrangements. This taut and vigorous track suffers from none of the above. Call him a songwriter or call him a singer – both of which he patently is – but not a singer-songwriter. He’s so much better than that.
Tom Robinson – BBC 6 Music
This is a good demo, with good songs that are delivered very well.

This track [Collections] is a fine example of his ability to weave unconventional elements into familiar genres. His searching vocals call to mind Tim Buckley while he shows commercial potential during the chorus, in which his voice soars over a gorgeous chiming guitar lick.
