R. Finn Shares “I Am A Soldier”
Following a two-year stint working with The Band’s Levon Helm at his studio in Woodstock recording the famous Midnight Rambles, R. Finn returned to Los Angeles and started his own recording studio and creative space, The Heritage Recording Co. It was in that studio that Finn recorded his debut LP, Collecting Trip—a ten-track collection of timeless Americana that finds the singer-songwriter channeling influences from Woody Guthrie to Leon Russell. Co-produced by legendary drummer Jim Keltner (Bob Dylan, Neil Young, John Lennon), Collecting Trip is an ode to the singer-songwriter’s (nee Chris Rondinella) deep dive into folk and Americana and features contributions from Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers), Sean & Sara Watkins (Nickel Creek), and more.
A heartfelt album colored by subtle, lush, haunting, and hopeful arrangements, the album represents the years of accumulating songs, players, and styles that have resulted in his affecting, long-evolving sound and lyrics which explore relationships and his worldview. Today, Finn shares one of the album’s tracks entitled, “I Am Soldier.” The hard-edged, yet meaningful tune is led by Finn’s airy vocals and assisted by softly muted percussion, somber keys, and guitar riffs that lend tension to the track. “I am a soldier in an unknown army/just a peaceful fighter in an endless war.”
