Liam Finn originally hails from Australia, but identifies New Zealand as his home country as he moved there as a child. You'll recognize Liam's famous last name, as his father is Neil Finn from 1980s chart toppers Crowded House. Liam joined his father on covering The Beatles' "Two of Us" for the I Am Sam soundtrack and has played some Crowded House reunion shows. However, Liam does not rely on his lineage and has set forth to forge his own musical identity.
Since striking out on his own, Liam has performed on the David Letterman show as well as logging appearances on Craig Ferguson and Jools Holland. Liam has also done multiple tour dates with Eddie Vedder as well as the Black Keys. Here Liam, along with band mate EJ Barnes perform "Second Chance" from his album I'll be Lightning.
