You know his music from the power chords of The Hold Steady to the throwback sounds of Lifter Puller, but at this year’s 80/35 you'll get to experience pure, undiluted Craig Finn. The singer-songwriter’s solo material features the same great narrative lyrics of his famous bands, with a slightly more vulnerable sound.
Following The Hold Steady’s 2014 album “Teeth Dreams,” Finn headed back into the studio to record his second solo album, “Faith in the Future.” On his solo shows, Finn has been playing his own material, with a few Hold Steady and Lifter Puller tracks snuck in for fans.
