Tonight at 9 we've got a session with Liam Finn, son of Neil Finn (Crowded House, Split Enz). That got us to thinking of other sons and daughters of musicians who have followed in their parents' footsteps. Who are some of your favorites? List them below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

"Persuasion" - Richard & Teddy Thompson

"The Wheel" - Rosanne Cash

Liam Finn - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

Liam Finn may come from a musical family (his father is Neil Finn of Crowded House fame) but he has been making a name for himself since 2007.  Liam writes and records his own style of engagingly innovative music. He's now on his third full-length release, The Nihilist, which is an eccentric and ambitious album that features layering of both organic and programmed instruments, all under his signature falsetto vocal styling. Liam recently stopped by Studio A to perform some of his new songs and to talk with me about made up holidays, writer's block and his adopted home of New York City.

His debut album showcased a one-man-band with innate songwriting gifts, but Liam Finn (yes, son of Neil) has moved on to new sounds (and the inclusion of a few other musicians) on his new album 'FOMO.' Learn more about the songs and the title in Liam's recent visit with FUV's Alisa Ali. [7/12/11]

Liam Finn - Words and Music - 2008

by Claudia Marshall
The Finn family is rich in musical talent courtesy of brothers Neil and Tim, but the next generation is now in the spotlight thanks to Liam Finn. He's just released a solo debut called 'I'll Be Lightning,' and recently stopped by the 'FUV studios to talk music with Claudia Marshall and perform a few songs live.
