Traveling the roads of Europe for fourteen years, Irish-Canadian singer-songwriter Morgan Finlay has woven his talent for melody, poignant observations and passion for humanity into a fan-made success story. From the electricity of his very first single ‘zensong’, which climbed to #2 on the Australian Independent Radio charts, through eight releases and over seven hundred and fifty shows, Finlay’s powerful voice and honest storytelling have brought him acclaim and a passionate following, who have financed four successful IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaigns, helped decide his album songlists, hosted concerts, and directed videos.
Finlay’s sixth full-length album ‘Little Calm’, featuring ten songs and a one hundred-page album book, takes listeners on a gritty path through the streets and boroughs of Hamburg, Germany. Further plans in 2018 include releasing a video for the album single, touring a full slate of shows in Europe, and performing a song that he wrote for Lebenshilfe, a national organization in Germany that supports special needs people, at their 50th anniversary celebrations.
“...Finlay is a clever, genre-bending singer/songwriter that takes experience and observation and accounts for an enjoyable and poignant excursion into his head.”
“The warm yet distant-sounding voice of Morgan Finlay creates a positive atmosphere that is made stronger by the songs, with their intelligent arrangements and the well thought-out lyrics.” (Vampster)
“His style is enthusiastic with a strong, unmistakable voice. In all, he is a very talented musician with emotional lyrics and... a classical singer-songwriter attitude.”
“As a gifted storyteller...with a versatile voice and excellent acoustic guitar play he fascinated the audience from the first to the last tone.” (Chemnitz Sonnenberger)
“Morgan Finlay proves himself a modern singer/songwriter, all the while rooted deeply in tradition.”
(Ein Achtel Lorbeerblatt)
“His voice ... is supported by his poetic, metaphorical lyrics; his music takes us on a trip, but we have to make the experiences ourselves.”
