Hailing from Columbus, Ohio, Los Angeles based Singer/Songwriter, Rees Finley, will release his debut full-length album, "A Tale Told By An Idiot" on June 26th, 2019. Rees has developed a loyal following since the release of his debut EP, "Songs 1-5" in the summer of 2017 which ranged from 80’s style synthpop, to retro-motown funk to overdriven alt-rock, often within the span of 3 minutes and 30 seconds. Though Finley's records vary widely in terms of genre, fans and critics alike have noted the consistent quality of his songcraft; always melodic, frequently neurotic, and simultaneously sarcastic and sentimental. He will be supporting "A Tale Told By An Idiot" with east coast tour dates in July and August.
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”
