Dig below chart-toppers for underrated artists

Written By Gianna DiPaolo, For The Globe

The best thing about music is finding new artists and songs to listen to. While some artists rise to the top because of a “one-hit-wonder,” most of them stay in the shadows with a small crowd. One of those artists that have been under the radar for far too long is FINNEAS.

Finneas O’Connell, better known by his stage name as FINNEAS, has been producing music and starring in movies since early 2011. His debut role as Spencer from “Bad Teacher” kick-started his career, and he became established as a performer. From his acting career, he began to write and produce music on SoundCloud, and eventually for bigger named artists. He produced music for the film, “Life Inside Out,” and helped his sister, Billie Eilish, start her career.

While writing and producing for other artists, he also began his solo career. In 2016, he released his first single, “New Girl.” Following that, he started to release his singles more sporadically due to the fact that Billie Eilish’s career was thriving and expanding. However, he got to showcase all of the singles he released through performing with Billie, but he still didn’t get the following he deserved.

Now in 2019, he finally released an EP titled “Blood Harmony” that features seven of his hit singles. This EP sparked interest and he started to gain a larger following of fans. Two tracks that went viral were “I Lost A Friend” and “Let’s Fall in Love for the Night.” They were featured on popular social media websites and even in bigger influencers YouTube or Instagram videos. In addition, fans of Billie Eilish are learning that FINNEAS is her brother, so avid Eilish fans are giving attention to him.

Although it’s still early in his career, FINNEAS has released countless amazing singles. His vocals and the instrumentals within his songs are really what sets him apart from other artists, and he deserves more recognition for his creations. He’s been gaining more attention in recent months, but he is still an underrated artist that needs to be discovered.
