Role: Musical Director
Finn Askew is a great up and coming UK artist. Finn normally plays live with his guitar but management wanted to step things up some more and showcase the production of the songs live. I was brought in to help Finn work out the nest way to incorporate backing tracks into his live set that would work well with his vocal and guitar and we definitely achieved a great sound and a vibe with lots of energy during live performance. Next stop… Incorporate a band!
About Finn Askew:
Label: Polydor Records
Genre: Rap / Hip Hop
Finn Askew is a British musician from Wellington in south-west England. Finn cites US Hip-Hop acts such as Juice WRLD and Lil Peep as music influences of his sound though he fell in love with music after uncovering his parent’s CDs, a mixture of Nirvana, The Smiths, and The Beach Boys.
Askew’s debut single “Roses” was created and recorded when he was 16. He got the beat from YouTube and used GarageBand and his £20 microphone to create it. “Roses” featured in a live stream on V Live from Taeyong(member of K-Pop band NCT). As a result the track was included in the Spotify viral charts in a number of southeast Asian countries and has over 12 million streams on Spotify alone.
Askew released his debut EP Peach which combines Lo-Fi Hip-Hop, Piano Jazz and Indie Rock in January 2021.
Finn Askew was listed as one of Vevo Dscvr’s Artists To Watch for 2021.
