Robert Finley’s talent is undeniable. Music Maker founder Tim Duffy knew this the second he spotted him playing on the street at the King Biscuit Blues Festival. After working to address some of Robert’s basic needs like getting him new teeth and housing, we set him up with his NYC debut at Webster Hall with the Music Maker Blues Revue and Robert delivered a performance so strong that it got recognized in the NY Times.
