Neil Finn Bio

Neil Mullane Finn (born 27 May 1958) is a New Zealand singer-songwriter and musician. With his brother Tim Finn, he was the co-frontman for Split Enz, a project that he joined after it was initially founded by Tim and others, and then became the frontman for Crowded House. He has also recorded several successful solo albums and assembled diverse musicians for the 7 Worlds Collide project; contributor Ed O’Brien, also guitarist for Radiohead, has hailed Finn as popular music’s ‘most prolific writer of great songs’.

Finn rose to prominence in the late 1970s with Split Enz and wrote the successful songs ‘One Step Ahead’, ‘History Never Repeats’, ‘I Got You’ and ‘Message to My Girl’, among others. Finn rose to international fame after Split Enz broke up in 1984. While his brother Tim left for England, Neil was the founder of Crowded House with Split Enz’s last drummer Paul Hester in 1985. The group achieved international success in 1987 when they released the single ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’, written by Neil.
