"Painting a sparse, desolate soundscape of country noir, murder ballads and destitute emptiness, Brian Finke casts a spell with every brush stroke. Even more compelling is his ability to shade the depravity with a hue of elegance, beauty and delicate harmony. While the songs may hover in the shadows, telling of tragedy and struggle, the smoky, hazy layer of softness superimposed on top is like a bitter pill of truth coated in vanilla- but in the kind of way where the sheer contrast and lack of alignment between the two realities casts a faint wonder of its own, much like those times when you can detect the preciousness of discordance. "Stationhill EP" is a must-hear for the Nick Drake fan but will find a home in any heart keen on dark country folk."
-Tamara Turner, CD Baby - Cd Baby

Brian’s EP succeeds when it is left to its own sonically moody devices, most notably “Shelly’s Ghosts” that nicely sums up the EP’s point of view in an interesting, ascending piano. And while we’re on the subject of ghosts, many of the songs on here seem to be in conversation with the specter of Nick Drake. It is a good conversation to eavesdrop in on. This EP is ideal for those Ray LaMontagne fans who like a little more poetic bang for their grimy, travel stained buck. - by Marie Helene

Brian Finke • Stationhill EP • 2004



Pulling from the undersides of Urban life the physical and specific beauty of rusted buildings abandoned piers Indiana native Brian Finke and his newly formed band Lone Tree craft a sound that one reviewer described as country noir, a catchy phrase made evident in the sad dark characters Finke hones with a sharp pen, soothing voice, and melodic rolling sound reminiscent of the best Nick Drake. Now think of Leonard Cohen his baritone poems and his 1960 novel Beautiful Losers.

Currently a resident of New York City, Brian and his band perform regularly throughout the city. His song "A Line" has been featured on NPRs All Songs Considered. He and his beautiful girlfriend of 3 were married in September. Brian is currently finishing up his demos for recording in January.
