Best known as the frontman for Brooklyn indie band The Hold Steady, Craig Finn has drawn comparisons to Bruce Springsteen for his narrative-driven, world-weary songs that explore, in his words, the hangover after the celebration. In his solo work, he sheds the driving energy of The Hold Steady for a quieter sound world in which his stories stand illuminated in the foreground. His critically acclaimed second solo album, Faith in the Future, is filled with characters seeking redemption in the darkness and persevering in the face of tragedy and change.
