They couldn’t ask for a best first tour partner than Royal Wood.

“It’s a nice tour. He heard us on CBC and  asked us to tour with him,” said Fionn mandolinist/vocalist Alanna  Finn-Morris. Though they are new to touring, they are not new to playing.

“We started busking (on Granville Island) when we were 12 and we’ve played all over Vancouver,“ she said.

 They have released three singles including “Skeleton” and “Magazine Face,” to build up buzz for their debut album to be released on 604 Records later this year.
 The daughters of Irish immigrants grew up in a very musical family.

“Dad moved here from Ireland and was in an Irish show band called Killarney, but he had stopped playing with them before we were born and our mom is a classically trained pianist who owns a music school,” she said adding they didn’t push them into pursuing music, though traditional Irish music  around their home soaked into their psyches.

“They left it up to us to discover music,” she said, adding she and her sister started busking around Granville Island in Vancouver when they were 12 -years-old.
“We took music lessons, but our teacher taught us how to write songs,” she said, adding they were immediately drawn to folk and country music.
“Country music is more relatable,. It is more realistic. The lyrics are about things that really matter,” she continued.


They are pleased to be part of 604 Records, which has a strong pop roster.
“ They have a lot of pop music. Carly Rae Jepson and Marianas Trench and Coleman Hell are part of it. There’s a variety,” she said.
“It’s very cool to be part of it. We’ve got to meet some of the artists and they have been so nice to us,” she said.

 They are excited to have there first tour ever being with Royal Wood.
“We just get to play a half hour set before him. We’re extremely excited about it,“ she said.
Fionn open for Royal Wood for two shows at the Geomatic Attic, May 22 and 23. The first show is sold out. There are still tickets left for the second for $42.50 advance $45 at door.
