Col Finley

There is not much that can’t be said about singer/songwriter Col Finley. After notching up 25 years of writing, recording and performing, he’s about to release his 6th album “The Collective” a 25-song, 2-disc tribute to all the songs he has written over his illustrious career. But really 25 songs is only the tip of this songwriter story. From humble beginnings as a footy kid from Canberra, then to becoming a police dog handler in the RAAF, to one of Australia’s leading independent entertainers and singer-songwriters, Col Finley has taken his music from the salt of the earth to the top of the ARIA and country music charts, across Australia and across the globe, performing in some of the world’s leading venues and music festivals.

It’s not only music this pioneer has dipped his toes into. Col Finley has also been a part of the Australian film industry, working with famous actors like Leo McKern, Jeffrey Rush, Barry and Miranda Otto, Noah Taylor and Dave Fields in the movie ‘Dad and Dave: On Our Selection’. Col was Leo Mc Kern’s stunt double and stand in. Col also had cameo roles in the film. Col’s music has also been featured in film and TV including the box office smash ‘Wolf Creek’, TV shows like ‘MDA’, ‘A Real Sea Change’, plus so much more.

“The Collective” will be the biggest project of all six albums, taking over 24 months to design, plan and now produce.

Col Finley “The Collective” will be officially released on 25th January 2018 at the Tamworth Country Music Festival. It’s the last day of his 25 years as he embarks on the next quarter century of his music career. “I’d be chuffed to still be doing this after 50 years,” he laughs. “I’m enjoying where I’m at for now and am solely focused on the next 12 months and making sure this album gets the respect and love it deserves.”
