ABOUT ME

I have been a musician since about 11 years old when I was given my first guitar by a treasured Aunt and Uncle. Had three lessons, got bored with progress and figured that I could do it quicker myself ~ which I did. Long nights into early mornings ensued as I traded licks with the likes of Andy Powell and Ted Turner (Wishbone Ash); Walter Becker (Steely Dan); Jan Ackerman (Focus) and many other influencing guitarists of the time.

From early years with ‘PRIDE’ (who incidentally won ITV’s New Faces) and ‘JACKO’ (who incidentally got ripped off in Germany) to later years with ‘SOS’ and session work at De Lane Lea Studios in Wembley where a bunch of us ended up on Top of The Pops ~ twice!

ITV's 'New Faces' Winners (100th edition)

ITV's 'New Faces' All Winners ~ runners up

This Years Blonde ~Top of the Pops

From creating and performing music to video production to photography to working with other bands and musicians like N.U.M.B. and N.N.D.D. ~ life is always quite busy.

    With an excellent, lived in voice and a superior lyricist's winning way with image and metaphor, this is a record of a man whose faith has been caught in the crucible of pain and trial and whose art has matured and deepened as a result. . . TONY CUMMINGS, CROSS RHYTHMS UK critique of Matthew Finnish 'ON TRIAL' album.

    'Matthew Finnish' is about quality and a job well [url hidden]pletely self-contained with sound system, lighting and professional quality kit and based on experience over some 40 years, the ability to read a crowd and deliver a musically good time whatever the occasion.
