|Martin Finke was born in Germany, but he will tell you he is Irish. His mother brought him to Ireland at the age of four, and they settled there. He grew up in Clifden, County Galway, in a bilingual house on the bog.|
Influenced as a teenager by Van Morrison, My Bloody Valentine and The Wedding Present, Martin moved away from the burly west coast, and rented a room in Boston in 1998. Here he began recording and playing live, often alongside his friend Josh Ritter.
Since coming home, Martin has signed with Parallel Music, a new independent label in Dublin, and has recorded his album, Untended Stories, which solidifies a craft that he has been building on for years.
