Neil Finn

neil finn was originally drafted in to split enz as phil judd’s replacement during their original spell in england. in the time the boys had been away launching themselves in australia and finding their feet in england, neil had developed a reputation as a good guitarist and an excellent song-writer – effectively filling the whole left by judd (who up until that point was actually considered the bands greatest asset). neil finn gained fame and popularity touring with split enz – eventually becoming their primary song-writer – but this exposure was doubled by the m.o.r. success of his own group, crowded house.
crowded house released album after album of finn compositions, forming a huge fan base the world over. after the success of neil and tim’s album as the finn brothers in 1995, the younger neil launched an acclaimed solo career, immediately picking up where crowded house had ended.
