Jeff Finlin, the singer-songwriter profiled by Pulitzer-Prize winner J.R. Moehringer in the current issue of 5280, will be performing at 8 p.m. tomorrow and next Wednesday at Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret.
This a great opportunity to introduce yourself to an artist Moehringer described as “an undiscovered Bob Dylan in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.”
…despite his lack of commercial success, he’d received plenty of lavish praise. He’d gotten reviews any singer-songwriter would kill for. Critics gushed about his vocal debt to Dylan, and noted his resemblance to other beloved troubadours like Steve Earle, Randy Newman, and Tom Waits. They called his lyrics “literature,” dispatches from the social margins, and compared his sensibility to that of iconic masculine writers like Raymond Carver and Sam Shepard.
