Incredibly Unfamous award-winning indie pop-folk artist Finn O’Sullivan got her start performing Taylor Swift concerts in her bedroom while her parents were out.The Boulder, CO-based singer-songwriter picked up her first guitar at age 12 and hasn’t put it down. In addition to guitar, Finn plays ukulele and piano, and her sound and style and voice have been compared to such artists as Regina Spektor, dodie, and Phoebe Bridgers. She says that songwriting is a way for her to express herself and talk about things that are important to her, which is sometimes hard for her to do in everyday conversation. She is “committed to creating things that other people can relate to,” and her songs are a testament to this commitment.
Finn began working with a producer after she won the 2016 eTown Handmade Songs Competition in Boulder, CO, and she has been recording on her own and with producers since. Her first two EPs, Between the Lies and pitypartythoughts, were released in 2018 and 2019 respectively. She released her first LP, When the Power Comes Back On, in 2020. The title song of that LP won the prestigious Song of the Year award in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. Her most recent EP, These Days, was released in April of 2021. Finn is currently pursuing a singer-songwriter/music business double major at The University of Colorado Denver.
With an Instagram tagline of “love, heartbreak and self-deprecation,” Finn writes about the universal themes of love and loss with both humor and compassion. Her songs are, indeed, relatable. In one of her songs, Finn muses about a habit of putting her “faith in things that tend to fall apart, secretly hoping I can turn it into art.” And she’s quite adept at doing just that. Finn’s turns of phrase and sometimes surprising chord progressions evidence a maturity in musicianship and a true poetic gift. Her lyrics range from old soul to millennial quirky, and her clever, catchy tunes simply get stuck in your head.
