Featured Release This Week From Robert Finley + Studio One Tracks Top 30 Playlist

Jan 29, 2018

Perhaps not since Big Star titled their first album #1 Record has an artist been so upfront about their ambition for success:  Robert Finley calls his new record Goin' Platinum! (the exclamation point is part of the title).  The 64-year-old, Louisiana-born blues & soul singer has earned the right to grab some attention.  Finley has been performing off and on for decades, and finally released his debut studio album in 2016.  The new Goin' Platinum! ​was produced by Dan Auerbach at his Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville, and released on the producer's own label.  Auerbach plays guitar throughout, and he wrote or co-wrote all ten songs on the record.  He gives Finley every opportunity to impress as a vocalist, and maybe even to realize his titular aim.
