Description

Tim Finn, one of the most praised and admired artists of the past thirty years has enjoyed a unique and remarkable career. From his time with pop pioneers Split Enz (which he co-founded) and Crowded House to a successful solo career, Finn has shown no signs of slowing, in the process penning such classics as Six Months In A Leaky Boat, Poor Boy, Dirty Creature, I See Red, Charlie, Weather With You and Persuasion.

The View Is Worth The Climb has proven to be one of Finn’s most satisfying projects to date. He assembled a band of likeminded musicians for the recording; Joey Waronker (Beck, REM), Zac Rae (Macy Gray, Fiona Apple, Cold War Kids), Brett Adams (The Bads), Tony Buchen (Andy Bull) and Mara TK (Electric Wire Hustle).

The title track is a co-write with Australia’s leading female artist, the ARIA Award winning Megan Washington. The album was recorded late in 2010 at Roundhead Studios Auckland with Grammy Award winning, US Producer/Mixer Jacquire King (Kings Of Leon, Tom Waits, Norah Jones and Modest Mouse).
