Craig Finn & The Uptown Controllers 
WebsiteFacebookInstagramTwitter
Craig Finn is a Minnesota-bred singer/songwriter based in New York City, best known as the singer of The Hold Steady. Finn spent the ’90's leading Minneapolis indie band Lifter Puller, which released 3 albums and an EP.  After relocating to New York, he joined with Lifter Puller member Tad Kubler to form The Hold Steady in 2003.  The Hold Steady quickly achieved critical acclaim and a worldwide fanbase with their unique pairing of dense lyrical narratives with big rock guitars.  The Hold Steady has released eight LPs, including Open Door Policy in February 2021.  Finn released his first solo album in 2012 with three additional solo LPs put forth since 2015 - Faith in the FutureWe All Want The Same Things, and 2019's I Need a New War - which coalesced into a sign-of-the-times musical trilogy.

Finn’s fifth solo album, A Legacy of Rentals, was released in May 2022 to great fanfare. Pitchfork praised it saying, “The writing remains the main attraction in Finn’s work, and both as a storyteller and a rock songwriter, he has never sounded more in control. From the beginning, he had a gift for meticulous, vivid world-building, and his wordplay has gotten tighter as his subjects have come down to earth.”

When performing his solo material live, Craig Finn is joined by a dynamic group of musicians called The Uptown Controllers.
