Bio

Growing up in a fishing village on the southeast tip of Prince Edward Island, Canada, Finley Martin developed an early appreciation for the great Celtic tradition of storytelling that surrounded him.

In the early years, he drove a forklift at the local fish plant, hitchhiked around Europe, sold toy helicopters in San Francisco, and busked on the streets of Halifax, Nova Scotia. One August, he hitched a ride in an 18-wheeler hauling lobster down to the States.

After arriving in Washington, D.C., he joined area post-punk veterans Gist, co-founded Red Stapler Records, toured up & down the East Coast of North America in an old church van, and released four albums Pretest Retest, Art is Now Human, Diesel City, and Conversations Expectations. He also played & toured for 5 years as bass player with local noise-art rock band The Chance releasing the EP Dimensions.

Backtracks is Finleys first solo acoustic album. Its a collection of stories about leaving the rural life behind in search of adventure in the city. He blends his Scotch-soaked Slovak roots with the DIY attitude of D.C.s fiercely independent music scene.
