Bursting back onto the scene in 2021 with an exquisite new single that expertly combines his empowered attitude, bold lyricism, and stunning vocals, alternative singer-songwriter Finnegan Tui is set to take over playlists worldwide with the release of his latest single ‘MORE’, July 29th. A true force to be reckoned with, Finnegan creates powerful material that genuinely connects to listeners largely due to the passion, dedication, conviction, and commitment that can be heard in every word he sings.
Finnegan is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer originally from New Zealand, now living in London. Since his first gig at the age of six he has been obsessed with creating music and has dedicated his life to sound. After moving to the UK, Finn received a scholarship to study Jazz and Electronic Music at the Guildhall School of Music. Alongside studying he took every musical opportunity he received, playing many gigs around the city, composing music for full orchestras, taking commissions from the Museum of London & Channel 4 and exhibiting sonic works at the Tate Modern and the Barbican.
Three years into the course he met his manager and began the journey of recording and releasing his own music. This is what he had always wanted to do and so decided to leave Guildhall to commit full-time to his career as an artist and create his debut album ‘Zephyr’. He is now 21 and halfway through the project having produced the first tracks with Matt Lawrence (Mumford and Sons and Bjork) and Charlie Andrew (Alt-J and Johnny Flynn). In an attempt to create immersive sonic worlds for his tracks, Finn has worked on incorporating intricate sound design into his songs with Niv Adiri (Gravity and Batman).

Finnegan made his debut back in June with ‘Once I’m Gone’. The release received great praise, with support from Wonderland Magazine and garnering over 30,000 Spotify streams. Now, returning with ‘MORE’, Finnegan explores the depths of being human. His playfulness comes through in his productions which feature sounds he collects from forests or his kitchen, a-top mountains or rooftops, out in the ocean, a stream or anywhere and everywhere in-between.
His new single is as shocking as it is soulful. Finnegan has never been one to hold back when it comes to his art and ‘MORE’ reveals the confident performer he’s becoming. With so much more to come from the young artist, we’re expecting big things from Finnegan Tui this year.
