The story of singer Louis Finley, born in Louisiana, reads like a boy\'s book for seniors. He once lost his complete vision as a carpenter and decided to become a street musician. A fortune in a major accident, because eventually Finley was discovered. Nobody less than Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach signed the now 64-year-old blues singer and guitarist on his Easy Eye Sound label, wrote his album Goin \'Platinum! (2017) and even produced it. Auerbach aptly typifies Finley\'s vocal qualities: \'He has that magnetic hugeness about his voice\'. Now the latter stands, as a musical blueprint for the American Dream, where it belongs: on the international stages. For lovers of vunzige blues rock peppered with soul and a touch of gospel, this late bloomer during his debut on North Sea Jazz is highly recommended.
