Fintan McKahey is the son of an Irish drummer (Stump) and a British actress. He grew up in the wild, rugged landscape of West Cork, which has inspired so many other musicians, artists and writers to call it home.
A multi-instrumentalist, Fintan has focused on his own career as a singer-songwriter, developing a percussive approach to the acoustic guitar. From ring forts to the Masai Mara and studies in Peru with Laika shamans, these other realms have influenced his sound. Nick Drake proved an early influence but relocation to the gritty, urban metropolis of London found him listening to more hip hop and downtempo electronic music.
