Robert Finley: Sharecropper's Son (CD)

(Easy Eye Sound) 10 Tracks, Digisleeve
Army veteran Robert Finley was an entertainer and sensational soul singer all his life. But it wasn't until he lost his sight that, after six decades of hard work, he became an overnight sensation.

Grammy-winning producer and frontman of The Black Keys Dan Auerbach raves, "He's an old blues guitar player, but once he puts his guitar away, you can put him in front of an orchestra and he sings as well as Ray Charles on the first take. There's an intangible greatness to his voice and he just knows how to put it in - always." and awarded him the title of "Greatest Living Soul Singer."

Sharecropper's Son features songs written by Robert Finley and his producer Dan Auerbach. The backing band is made up of blues veterans and studio legends who - from Elvis to Wilson Pickett - have played with and for pretty much all the greats. But the fire is lit by Robert Finley with his incredible voice.

Robert Finley

American Blues & Soul Singer

 

Robert Finley of Bernice, Louisiana, has been playing the guitar nearly all his life. At the age of 11, his father gave him some money to get new shoes - but Robert walked to town and bought a guitar instead. He walked home in those old shoes and there was no looking back.

He joined the Army at age 17 and was originally sent to Germany as a helicopter technician. When he arrived, however, he discovered the Army band was in need of a guitarist and bandleader. He took over and traveled with the band throughout Europe until he was discharged. After returning home, Robert tried to continue a career in music but found doors shut to him - he had no contacts and needed to earn a living. He picked up carpentry, a skill he had learned from his father, which was how he supported himself until recently.


In 2015  Robert was diagnosed with glaucoma and was told by his doctors that his eyesight will continue to degenerate until he eventually becomes blind. With his failing eyesight, it is impossible for him to continue his carpentry work, so he returned to his musical ambitions. Robert says, 'I don't need my eyes to play. I feel the music. This is what I'm meant to be doing, and I'm going to do it.'
