69 YEARS-YOUNG RISING STAR RETURNS WITH DAN AUERBACH-PRODUCED ALBUM – A SWAGGERING TOUR DE FORCE OF BLUES, SOUL, AND FUNK, SHARING STORIES FROM THE SWAMPS OF LOUISIANA 

“Black Bayou is definitive Robert Finley—a master musician and entertainer—taking all his bluesy swagger up a notch, a bigger sound with heavier grooves, full confirmation that Robert Finley only gets better with time.” 
SPIN

“Black Bayou’s swampier blues and subtler arrangements offer a versatile range of material that reveals the wide expanse of his vocal prowess.”
No Depression

“An anthem of hope”
The FADER

“The 11-track album, a portrait of a life that comes together in strokes of gospel, blues, and rock and roll, is simple, relatable, and wise, but above all honest.”
American Songwriter

“Black Bayou is surely the album Finley was put on Earth to create, filled with stories only he could tell. 5 STAR REVIEW”
Mojo Magazine

“Approaching his eighth decade, then, and with no shortage of tall tales to impart, Robert Finley’s work here is clearly just getting started.”
Uncut

“Funky, bluesy… Fueled by Robert’s soulful Southern grit” 
Brooklyn Vegan

In no short terms, Finley’s journey thus far has been nothing short of mythical.” 
PASTE

Robert Finley releases his anticipated fourth studio album Black Bayou, an 11-track tour de force that coalesces gospel, blues, soul, and rock into a raw, thundering tribute to Finley’s home state of Louisiana. Telling tales of the bayou from childhood to now, the 69-year old Finley takes listeners on a journey that showcases his growly vocals, sultry falsetto and cements him as a living legend.
