From White Rock, BC come twin sister duo Fionn. 20-year-olds Alanna and Brianne Finn-Morris have been performing together since they were 12, busking and playing restaurants, cafes, farmers markets, house parties, and corporate events. Immediately following high school, they signed with 604 Records. The label put Fionn in touch with 2011 Polaris Prize nominee Louise Burns, who produced “Magazine Face” and the upcoming album, along with contributions from John O’Mahony (Sara Bareilles, Vance Joy), Grammy winner Robert Orton (Lana Del Ray, Mumford & Sons), and Pedro Dzelme (Carly Rae Jepsen) to record their upcoming debut album. After playing up to 100 shows a year throughout high school – often multiple gigs a day on weekends – Fionn’s mix of pop and folk already sounds more polished than tunes by most people their age.
