TIM FINN AND PHIL MANZANERA ANNOUNCE COLLABORATION
TIM FINN AND PHIL MANZANERA ANNOUNCE COLLABORATION FINN/MANZANERA WITH THE LAUNCH OF CAUGHT BY THE HEART E.P.
THE FIRST IN A SERIES OF MULTI-GENRE, -GENERATIONAL AND -NATIONAL E.P.’s
On 18th June, two titans of British and New Zealand music will release the first in a series of EPs.
Renowned Kiwi singer-songwriter Tim Finn (Split Enz, Crowded House) and legendary guitarist and producer Phil Manzanera (Roxy Music) have global lockdown to thank for bringing them back into musical contact again, 45 years after they first worked together.
During the last nine months Tim and Phil, each working in their home studios some 12,000 thousand miles apart, have jointly written over 20 new songs, finding the time and space of a pandemic-restricted life leading to an incredible period of artistic creativity. There was no end goal in sight, just the sheer pleasure of two old friends making music together. This artistic freedom has produced songs that live in the moment. They are a moving and inspiring testament to a great singer-songwriter and composer-guitarist coming together in cyber-space and seeing where the music takes them.
