U.S loves Liam Finn

The release of Liam Finn’s debut solo album in the United States is attracting all the right attention in one of the world’s most difficult-to-crack music markets with the album this week debuting at #13 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart.

Being heralded in U.S Rolling Stone’s coveted ‘10 Artists To Watch in 2008’ list (plus the timely inclusion of –  “Second Chance’ as the sixth best song out of 100 as voted in Rolling Stone Australia), as well as Boston Globe’s –  “8 To Watch in 08’ and E! Online’s ‘Stars To Watch in 2008’ lists were certainly a great start but getting the nod from David Letterman is really something to write home about!

Liam will appear on the Late Show with David Letterman at the end of this month performing –  “Second Chance’, before a much touted performance at this years’ SxSW Music Festival as part of his U.S tour which runs from mid-February until the end of April.
