New Single “IDK” Is Out Now
Featured on Hollywood Life
“Youth be the future; the future is here, and never is that more evident than when artists like Finn Mathews release such tracks as his latest “Low Key.” Matthews echoes the R&B glam of the previous decade while adding a thick pop layer that rounds out and modernizes his sound. In “Low Key,” Matthews finds a home within a rhythm so seductive and subtle; among ambient synth stabs, he frees up his tender vocals and radiates a warmth to match his confession of love.” –Earmilk
“Into the Open” is a glimmering bedroom pop/R&B number that shows Matthews delivering that hopeful message in a catchy, flowing melody. His velvety vocals and atmospheric production carry the track. – American Songwriter
“A rising pop artist to get familiar with” – Billboard
“The catchy, groove-heavy track revolves around a killer hook and upbeat instrumental lines, as Matthews’ silky vocals take the lead.” – Indie 88
Finn says, “This song came from an experience I had where I realized that doing what I want to do is the most important thing in my life. I no longer felt the need to impress anybody or give anything to anybody who I didn’t feel deserved it. It’s really important to be secure with yourself and to not get sucked into drama”
Finn has been unstoppable this year, having released 3 records thus far with more to come before 2020 ends, and he is featured on Rick Ross new single “Pinned To The Crossed.” His current record, “Low Key” has been featured on playlists like “Spotify’s Pop Chill Out” and “Fresh Finds: Pop,” just to name a few.
Finn’s career started when he found a mentor in Elijah Blake, who has penned hits for artists like Rihanna, Usher and Rick Ross. Blake was floored by Finn’s delicate, yet soulful falsetto voice. At 16, Finn moved from New Jersey to Los Angeles to pursue music fulltime. Soon after, he received a development deal w/ Live Nation and released his first single and music video for the song “Julia” which hit over 1.2 million views on Youtube. But Finn wasn’t content to just stay in his lane as a pop vocalist. He honed his skills as a guitarist, writer and producer. And as Finn matured, so did his sound.
Finn presents a blend of vibey pop, rooted in R&B and marked by his signature vocal. Comparisons like Daniel Caesar or Jon Bellion come to mind. But, like his voice, this is a unique sound that is entirely Finn.
