Neil Finn


A songwriter’s songwriter and meticulous craftsman, Neil Finn has been such a dominant figure in New Zealand music that his biggest hits are heard daily in supermarkets and when telephoning government departments.

His reputation was built on classic songs such as ‘I Got You’, ‘Message To My Girl’, ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’ and ‘Better Be Home Soon’. But to some, his music is the sound of pop orthodoxy, reliable and old-school.
