Artist

Fink

Fink is the recording moniker of Fin Greenall, who started out as a DJ/producer before progressing toward making guitar-based folk/blues/indie music.

Originally from Bristol, England, Greenall made his first steps in music by recording an album with Lee Jones (aka Hefner) that was eventually released under the name EVA by Kickin' Records in 1995. Billing himself as Fink, Greenall released a pair of EPs, 1997's Finkfunk and 1998's Front Side Blunt Side, on Ninja Tune's Ntune imprint before the arrival of 2001's full-length Fresh Produce. In 2006, Fink then undertook a stylistic change, deciding to pick up the guitar to create music for the acoustic-based Biscuits for Breakfast, and with the addition of Tim Thornton on drums and Guy Whittaker on bass, formed a band. Distance and Time was released in 2007 with production work from Lamb's Andy Barlow and included the single "This Is the Thing," which featured in the film Dear John. In 2009, Fink released Sort of Revolution, which furthered and refined his songwriting and featured a collaboration with John Legend on the track "Maker." Perfect Darkness, from 2011, was produced by Billy Bush (Beck, Garbage) and gathered enough attention for Fink to be invited to perform with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam. This concert was subsequently released as a live album in late 2013, and a new studio album, Hard Believer, was released in July 2014. ~ Steve Leggett & James Pearce, Rovi
