Fin Greenall is an enthusiast. Rather more so than you might expect, in fact, from someone with more than ten albums under their belt. Whether he's talking about his new re-recorded acoustic retrospective collection IIUII (“it isn’t until it is”) with accompanying book of music and life memories, about his childhood in the English West Country, or everything in between - and this is someone who's lived a life and a half of hard graft and hard gigging in electronic, acoustic and even pop music already - that enthusiasm bubbles like someone half his age discovering the buzz of musical and cultural engagement for the first time.
Fin was born in Cornwall, which he remembers as "just beautiful - I'm so fortunate to have had that, I'm very proud to be Cornish." This early exposure rugged rural landscapes might go some way to explaining the pastoral strand that runs through his music - that and the fact his dad was a folk musician, who exposed him to the likes of John Fahey and Nick Drake early on. But at secondary age, the family moved to Bristol, perfectly coinciding with that city's absolute cultural explosion of the late 1980s. "It was an epic place to grow up," Fin says.
