Liam enlisted the help of his father on the album, recording it at Neil’s recording studio in Auckland. Furthermore, Liam’s uncle Tim has played alongside his father in both bands and has played alongside Neil as the Finn Brothers since the mid ‘90s. Refreshingly, as the latest product of this musical family, Liam borrows the fondness for Beatles-like pop melodies but largely finds his own musical bearings quite separately from his father’s and uncle’s, and his work stands on its own regardless of his last name.
I'll Be Lightning finds Liam coming into his own as a singer/songwriter not unlike how Neil did around the time of True Colours, a remarkable parallel in musical development that, when combined with the passing similarity in their songwriting styles, can perhaps tie Liam a little too closely to his father
OK let's get this out of the way as quickly as possible: Liam Finn is the son of Crowded House's Neil Finn. Being referred to as the 'son of' must be a double-edged sword. For whatever advantages there may be in having a recognisable name, mention Dweezil Zappa, Jakob Dylan, Julian Lennon and Adam Cohen, and one can't help but do a quick mental comparison with their famous forebears. The milestones of the father can quickly become the millstone for the son, almost guaranteed to be a burden at the outset of a budding career
Exclusive Prime pricing. Liam Finn's solo disc "I'll Be Lightning" is a great set from this young musician whose style is not far afield from his famous father Neil and Uncle Tim Finn. Finn fronted a band Betchadupa that had several CDs such as Move Over &Sleepy News. This CD is going to make those discs collector's items in fast form.
