Biography

Hailing from Columbus, Ohio, Los Angeles based Singer/Songwriter, Rees Finley, released his debut EP, "Songs 1-5" on August 10th, 2017, following several recent singles and music videos. Rees’ music is always melodic, frequently neurotic, and simultaneously sarcastic and sentimental. On record, Finley ranges from 80’s style synthpop, to retro-motown funk to overdriven alt-rock, often within the span of 3 minutes and 30 seconds. Live, Rees draws upon his multi-instrumentalism, jumping from piano to guitar; performing intimate solo sets and raucous punk rock with a trio.

EartotheGround says “Combine the phrasing and style of Ben Folds and the syntax of Green Day. Do you hear it? Yeah, you do. Because this is an interesting, clever songwriting style that is just about as 'timeless' as alt rock can get. The intricate songwriting elements even sometimes feel like Queen. “ Buffablog writes, “We just can't get enough of Rees Finley - the last time we checked in with him, we were digging his ode to the downtrodden, 'The Band Broke Up.' This time around he's released another juicy frenetic pop nugget called 'Talk to Me.' This LA solo artist really knows how to write a pop hook - fans of Maroon 5 or Bruno Mars will be into his stuff”

Rees released a collection of B-sides to Soundcloud in January 2018 and is planning to release more singles in the coming year.
