Today, Finn Matthews premieres his debut video “Half Hearted” via Sweety High. CLICK HERE TO WATCH. Finn’s career started as an artist when he happened to meet Elijah Blake in a recording studio. As Elijah recorded, Finn sang along in the background and vibed to the music. At the end of the session, Elijah turned to Finn and told him he was next. From that moment, Elijah (who has penned hits such as Usher’s “Climax”, Rihanna’s “No Love Allowed”) became a mentor to Finn. “Every generation has their own superstar that acts as a time stamp for young love and youthful memories in song form,” states Elijah of his protégé. “I truly feel that Finn possesses the kind of star power to be “it” for the new phase in music culture that’s happening now.”
“Half Hearted” is an anthem for all teens that highlights Finn’s passionate plea to love without holding back. Coupled with a video that captures the early stages of young love, “Half Hearted” showcases Finn’s musical style of blending pop elements with unheard-of fusions of soul. “I have always loved music because it allows me to express myself,” says Finn. “I can’t wait to share my voice with the world.”
At 16, Finn has now moved from the suburbs of Atlantic City, NJ to Los Angeles where he has dove into his music career head on. When he’s not in the studio, Finn can be found adding to his avid sneaker collection or skateboarding with his friends while sporting his signature “urban meets high fashion” threads.
