Description: Rock with girth and more hooks than a meat packing plant! Guitars, keyboards, soulful vocals and keen harmonies are all supported by a monster groove that can kick you in the pants as it whispers in your ear!
Biography: Finneus' brand new indie release 'Superstar and the Ballerina' is a deftly performed testament to the quartet's uncanny ability to write tight, catchy arrangements spanning the genres of hard rock, soul, alt-rock, emo and americana, all with a pop sensibility. The hooks are huge and the groove has girth. The album's briskly paced ten song, 38 minute running time is great indication that this is one band that knows it's way around a well-crafted tune: simplicity is elegance! But make no mistake, the lush, multi-layered sonic quality is deep; so deep that each listen reveals something new. Truly a collaborative outfit, the four band members equally shared all of the songwriting and production credits on their new release. Recorded at the world class Studio Chicago, 'Superstar and the Ballerina' evolved into something bigger and better than ever could have been imagined when tracking began in January 2006. There is a certain charm to this self-described "least connected band in Chicago". Indeed, the Illinois Entertainer, Chicagoland's most widely read music publication declared "Finneus rules the undiscovered!" And now, it’s your turn to discover Finneus and enjoy their music!
