Roots to Grooves – Fink

Welcome to our weekly podcast “Roots to Grooves”.
Each episode explores the music, life and careers of musical artists from their earliest beginnings through to their most recent releases.

This week musicians Jay Purcell and Jesse Quigley discuss the career and creative approaches of English singer, songwriter, guitarist, producer, and DJ “Fink” aka Fin Greenall.

Fink’s” sound can be described as acoustic, singer/songwriter folk music with undertones of soul, jazz and electronica.

 Unusually for most singer/songwriters, “Fink’s” first release was actually a fully sampled trip-hop affair along the lines of DJ Shadow or The Avalanches. Titled “Fresh Produce” that album has since been eclipsed by the many albums that would follow, and which present a completely different direction versus his debut release.

Fink’s” real name is Fin Greenall. Fin was born in Cornwall and raised in the legendary music city of Bristol. Starting out as a DJ and then an electronic music producer, Fin spent most of his formative years DJ around Europe before becoming disillusioned with the scene and the art form. It wasn’t until he spent some time checking out live music acts in his home city and eventually collaborating with a then unknown Amy Winehouse did he become inspired to take a more singer/songwriter approach to his music.

For the full story, including our discussion on Fin’s top 10 tips for making music, tune in to this week’s episode of Roots to Grooves”.
