Neil Finn was 18 when he was invited by his older brother Tim to join the trailblazing art rock band Split Enz. His career since might be measured as a series of bounds, the best-known being Crowded House, which he founded with Paul Hester and Nick Seymour after the breakup of Split Enz in 1984.
Four albums, among them Crowded House and Together Alone, brought the group popular and critical acclaim around the world. Along the way, there have been a host of collaborations, including with brother Tim and wife Sharon, and an array of names from Johnny Marr, Ed O’Brien, Eddie Vedder and most of Wilco.
There have been two solo records, Try Whistling This and One Nil (or One All). New album Dizzy Heights unmistakably marks a fresh leap – one that fans won’t want to miss.
