"If you're a frequenter to the smaller tents at Cross Rhythms' Festivals past you may have seen Matt plying his trade with an acoustic guitar and a gutsy
blues rock voice. But Mr Finnish is no fresh faced beginner but a music veteran, who, years back, experienced Top 20 success. Now he offers his debut
Christian project and thoroughly engaging it is too. With an eclectic range of styles from retro old time boogie rock on 'Your Will Not Mine' to the Randy
Newman-tinged 'Father God'. My favourites are the poignant acoustic ballad 'Wait For Me' and the eerily haunting piece of funky prog rock 'Waterfall'.
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."
"Here's a great example of an original song that is so well recorded and produced (as well as being a great tune!) that the uninitiated public would be asking themselves" Who did that song before?" Excellently crafted song, with a punchy vocal full of soul and passion. LEMONROCK UK. Matthew Finnish Artist of the Week.
