Biography

Singer-songwriter Morgan Finlay is a Canadian-born, but globally minded musician, with an impressive history of touching the minds and souls of many fans from many places. With a voice that has been compared to those of Bruce Cockburn and Jeff Buckley, Finlay’s sound is complex, passionate and reinforced by poetically strong lyrics.

An independent artist who holds a deep respect for his fan base, Finlay’s music has been described as “…impossible to stop listening to” (Jody Andruszkiewicz, Conestoga Students Inc. ) and “…a cut above most independent releases” (Tim Hartin, The Night Owl). His professional career in music saw his first single, zensong (Uppercut, 2002) reach the #2 spot on the Australian Independent Radio Charts, and Finlay has been on an upward trajectory ever since.

Hailing from North Vancouver, British Columbia, Finlay’s interest in music began to develop as a child when he honed his skills in violin, choir, opera, acapella and jazz. By the age of 16, Finlay had started writing his own songs. Finding inspiration in that which surrounds him has allowed for a diverse range of sound that remains highly personal, yet profoundly relatable.

From his beginnings on the Canadian campus circuit with the rock production of ‘Uppercut’ (2002) through the intimacy of ‘Splice’ (2004) and his two full-length releases of ‘Everything Will Work Out Right’ (2005) and ‘Shifting Through the Breakers’ (2007), Finlay has traveled both a physical and creative journey along the winding roads of indie music.
