Fini Bearman is a London based singer, multi-instrumentalist & composer, who has a ‘rare sense of melody running through her eclectic compositions, full of catchy twists and turns’. Her music melds diverse influences from jazz, folk and contemporary music into an 'arresting and uniquely personal' sound. Sometimes dealing with settings of poetry and other times original lyrics, ‘her voice, effortlessly moves between a light precision and warm soulfulness is unmistakably her own’. Fini released her latest album 'Burn the Boat' in October 2016 and it has already received much glowing reviews from peers and critics including ****'s from Jazzwise, allaboutjazz, the Guardian and the arts desk.
