Portrait of rickfinney1
The mastermind behind the unique sound of U.B.U., Rick Finney has been writing and performing music since the 1960s. As a performer, he’s gone on the road with such stars as Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, John Prine, John Hartford, and Jack “Cowboy” Clement. He’s also featured in music videos with Ray Charles and Roy Orbison and has opened shows for the likes of Johnny Rivers, the B-52s, comedian Steve Martin, and many others. As a songwriter, he’s had top ten country hits with the George Jones/Johnny Paycheck song “When You’re Ugly Like Us (You Just Naturally Got To Be Cool)” and “My Lady”, covered by Charlie Rich. Recently, though, Rick has been writing loads of new music, with inspiration from Anthony Crawford, a friend who’s recorded and played with Neil Young and Steve Winwood, that has a decidedly different flavor than his earlier hits. This fresh sound is a distinctive blend of new age, folk, and acoustic/ electric rock that will calm your mind and let you slip away from your troubles. With an almost live feeling on many of the tracks, Rick’s new music is original, interesting, and moving. Enjoy the ear candy, man.

In Early 2006 he met co-writer Jodi Ann. Together they have produced some great music!
