Craig Finn Holds Steady
Craig Finn, the lead singer and songwriter of The Hold Steady, is known for his vivid, literary-style songwriting. He often writes about characters going through an existential crisis. The Hold Steady released their eighth album, Open Door Policy, earlier this year. This time around, the Minneapolis-born Finn says his focus is on themes related to the trappings of technology and late-stage capitalism.
On today’s episode Craig Finn talks to Bruce Headlam about how the Drive By Truckers inspired him to create The Hold Steady, how Springsteen taught him to vamp, and why he feels like it’s his duty to not only write about the party, but to write about the hangover too.
