#281: Robert Finley, “Sharecropper’s Son”

Robert Finley’s story as a musician that finally has their breakthrough on their 50/60s is not unique – see Charles Bradley or Seasick Steve – but always impressing to hear about. After decades of obscurity, blues/soul songwriter Finley was spotted busking outside a music festival in Alabama, and the rest is history. His second album, “Sharecropper’s Son”, produced by Dan Auerbach, is out now. It’s our album of the week.
