Honor Finnegan has been singing professionally since the age of 11, when she was cast in the 1st National Tour of “Annie”. She spent her early adult life studying Improv in Chicago, with Del Close who created “Honor Finnegan vs. the Brain of the Galaxy” in her honor. In 1991 she moved to Ireland, where she sang in jazz bands, blues bands, big bands and traditional Irish bands including DeDannan for a brief spell. It was there that she discovered Heartfulness meditation.
Since returning to the US, Honor has been part of Jack Hardy songwriter’s exchange, the Tribes Hill folk music collective, and the NYC-based Chicks with Dip. She is a Kerrville New Folk song contest winner, and a Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist. Honor’s CD, The Tiny Life, was #9 on the Folk DJ in 2012, and her song, “Stark as Stone” is featured on Amy Speace’s, “Same Old Storm: Deluxe”. She has shared the stage with John Gorka, Christine Lavin, Ellis, David Massengill, John Forster, and Buskin and Batteau.
Her latest CD, Roses and Victory, was #3 on the Folk DJ Charts for February 2016. Honor was the #3 artist, and top solo artist. Combining elements of musical theatre, comedy, traditional folk, and poetry, New York Music Daily says, “Can you think of another artist who’s this eclectic, haunting and hilarious, all at the same time?”
Honor is also a trainer of Heartfulness meditation. She lives in New York city, and also works as a certified early childhood special educator.
