Finn Riggins is the result of a longtime collaboration between Cameron Bouiss, Eric Gilbert and Lisa Simpson. Having met while completing their music degrees at the University of Idaho, the trio began playing music together in 2000, an endeavor that would ultimately culminate in what is now Finn Riggins. In August of 2006, Bouiss, Gilbert and Simpson quit their jobs and moved to Sun Valley, Idaho to stitch together the outlines of Finn Riggins at “the helibase” – a secret practice spot/tour launch pad. Practices yielded shows, shows yielded tours and by the end of their first year as a group, Finn Riggins found themselves a national touring act who lived as much on the road as they did at home.
“VS WILDERNESS, THE TRIO’S FOURTH RECORD AND THIRD FOR TENDER LOVING EMPIRE, IS A COMPOSITIONALLY COMPLEX, DIRTY, EXTRA-HOOKY GEM OF AN ALBUM. ITS UNDENIABLY BRIGHT POP SENSIBILITY IS FILTERED THROUGH OFF-KILTER TIME SIGNATURES AND SURPRISING CHORD PROGRESSIONS THAT DELIGHT AND AMUSE—FINN RIGGINS WILL GET TO THE PAYOFF, BUT THEY TAKE THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED TO GET THERE.” –
