Virtual event with GRAMMY Award winner and Best New Artist nominee set for December 9th
Pandora has announced that multi-GRAMMY Award-winning songwriter, producer, artist, and this year’s Best New Artist Nominee, Finneas will perform in an exclusive virtual event this week. The Xfinity Awesome Gig powered by Pandora featuring Finneas will take place on Thursday, December 9th at 8:30 pm ET/5:30 pm PT. Fans can RSVP to attend for free.
In addition to performing, Finneas will be interviewed by the evening’s host, Jeff Regan, SiriusXM Alt Nation (ch. 36). The event takes place at Chicago’s Vic Theater.
Finneas is fresh off a sold out North American tour in support of his first full-length album, Optimist, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and earned him a GRAMMY Award nomination for Best New Artist. The album and its first two singles — “A Concert Six Months From Now” and “The 90s” — feature echoes of the dreamy, lush, alternative pop that won him a historic eight GRAMMY Awards for his work with his sister Billie Eilish, while also creating a sound that is uniquely his own. His 2019 debut EP, Blood Harmony, boasted the gold-certified single “Let’s Fall in Love for the Night.” Along the way, he also produced music for Justin Bieber, Halsey, Demi Lovato, Kid Cudi, Tove Lo and collaborated with Ashe and Ringo Starr.
In addition to his Best New Artist GRAMMY Award nomination for 2022, Finneas is also nominated for his work with Eilish in the rest of the “big four” categories — Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Album of the Year.
