Although he’s a newcomer to the music industry, Ethan Baird – also known as Finna Cry has spent most of his life making music – starting with the steel drums at age 9. After going through a couple different instruments including piano and clarinet, he eventually decided to concentrate on guitar and laptop production.

Finna Cry blends synthwave, post rock and lo-fi hip hop to create an intense, sometimes heavy sound (he’s trying to push the term “Hypno-hop” but it hasn’t caught on yet). Attempting to create an outlet for his anxious thoughts, his music is often switches between calm and dark at a moment’s notice; with a surreal, psychedelic tinge.
