Hypnotic, spellbinding ... Kenny Finton sings with a voice as smooth as polished granite. Chaya backs him up and sings her own songs with an Emmylou Harris quality, except you can understand the words Chaya sings.
Why this name?
Our first choice was the Lawrence Welk Orchestra, but the name was already taken, so we decided on our own name from the town in Northern Ireland where our ancestors came from -- Fintona. Besides, it is our last name.
Do you play live?
Playing live seems highly preferable to playing dead. We do this a lot, play live, that is.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I had an MP3 for lunch and it was delicious. Try one with mustard and onion!
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Major Labels are not as high ranking as General Labels. Still, a Private First Class label does the trick for me.
Band History:
See http://www.thefinton.com for more info.

My name is Kenny Finton. I’ve been writing music, poems, novels, short stories for more that 40 years. I publish, produce, write musicals and plays as well. I performed as a young man in coffeehouses, concerts, and did the folk circuits during the folk craze in the late 60s. I then became a staff writer in NewYork City. I never quit writing. Our performances have done nothing but improve in all that time. You will quickly find that my music is a lot different melodically and lyrically than the usual fare offered up on the Internet. Whether ‘tis better or not is your choice, not mine. I am pleased with the improvements, personally. I have learned the great art of loving my life and times. Like old wine, deliciousness is often a matter of time.
Your influences?
The EGYPTIAN BOOK OF THE DEAD, dogs howling, sirens screaming, storms blowing and jackals laughing.
Favorite spot?
We live in Colorado and are happy with our lot. Our lot is 150x300.
Equipment used:
Toothbrushes, soap, shampoos and wash clothes and deodorants for impeccable hygiene.
Anything else...?
The Finton's original songs sound like they have been major hits for many years. With Chaya on harmony, there is a magic vibe that makes the soul quiver.
