Today, Robert Finley, has announced additional upcoming fall tour dates that will include headline shows at venues across the US, including New York’s Mercury Lounge on October 18 and Philadelphia’s City Winery on October 19.

Finley today premiered a music video for “I Can Feel Your Pain,” a powerful soul ballad from his celebrated album Sharecropper’s Son, produced by Dan Auerbach and released earlier this year. The video premiered with Brooklyn Vegan who stated,  "The video has a nostalgic haze to it that really goes with the retro soul/blues vibe of the song, and though the music sounds like it could've been released decades ago, the message is entirely current.”

Speaking about the song, Finley commented, “‘I Can Feel Your Pain’ relates really to what is going on today. From people losing loved ones to the pandemic, all the marches going on, people being slaughtered by the police. Even if you don’t really know about the situation from a personal perspective you feel sympathy for that person who had to go through those things and this song is for them.”
“The greatest living soul singer” released his career defining album on Easy Eye Sound, to a plethora of praise. Finley was the cover story for SPIN Magazine’s June 2021 issue and interviewed by NPR’s Morning Edition, listen here. Rolling Stone described Finley's vocals as the perfect combination of “weathered and expressive” and praised, “his mesmerizing voice.”  EBONY stated “this singer-songwriter defies categorizing and just makes Black music that feels good,” and AVClub stated “Finley has a voice so distinctive and compelling that it can’t be ignored.”

Sharecroppers Son showcases Finley’s formidable vocals, which take centre stage and encapsulate his remarkable life story and reflect on his childhood during the Jim Crow era south. Rooted in the classic sounds of southern soul, country and rhythm & blues, it features songwriting by Finley, Auerbach, Bobby Wood, and contributions from respected country songwriter, Pat McLaughlin. The album features an all-star band including guitar expertise from Auerbach himself, Kenny Brown, Russ Pahl and Billy Sanford. They are joined by other notables: Bobby Wood, Gene Chrisman, Nick Movshon, Eric Deaton, Dave Roe and Sam Bacco.
Sharecropper’s Son is out now on Easy Eye Sound. Exclusive sunrise yellow vinyl is available from the Easy Eye Sound store only. For more information please visit:
