2021 has gifted fans around the world with a string of unforgettable television performances from the young maestro. Earlier this year, FINNEAS joined forces with friend and collaborator, Ashe, on their epic ballad “Till Forever Falls Apart.” The duo performed a gorgeous live rendition of the track on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live this past spring (WATCH), and American Idol (WATCH). Other highlights include a captivating live acoustic performance of “Can’t Wait To Be Dead” on CBS’ The Late Late Show [WATCH] and CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert [WATCH], and a moving live rendition of “What They’ll Say About Us” on ABC’s Good Morning America [WATCH], each one directed by Arturo Perez Jr. Last year saw a steady stream of stellar releases from the talented young artist, including his first holiday song (“Another Year”), which followed two fiery anthems “Where The Poison Is” [LISTEN] and “Can’t Wait To Be Dead” [LISTEN].
Earlier this year, FINNEAS received two additional GRAMMY® Awards with his sister Billie Eilish for ‘everything i wanted’ (Record of the Year), as well as a Best Song Written For Visual category for “No Time To Die,” the official James Bond theme song, both produced by FINNEAS.
His upcoming debut album follows the release of FINNEAS’ critically acclaimed debut EP, Blood Harmony, the DELUXE version which is available now. Written and produced entirely by the 24-year-old artist, the eight-track collection exemplifies his skills as a songwriter, producer and storyteller.
In 2020, FINNEAS received an impressive 6 GRAMMY Awards® including the prestigious Producer of the Year, Non-Classical and Best Engineered Album, Non Classical as well as Record of the Year, Album of the Year and Song of the Year with his sister Billie Eilish for her groundbreaking No. 1 debut album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? and hit single ‘bad guy.’
FINNEAS’ trademark production can also be heard on recent songs from Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, Camila Cabello, Tove Lo, Ben Platt, and throughout Billie Eilish‘s recently released sophomore album, ‘Happier Than Ever.’
