Neil Finn on the Album Title

Neil Finn explains the inspiration behind the album title, Gravity Stairs. The name was inspired by an unnaturally heavy stone staircase near where Finn vacations. “The Gravity Stairs are symbolic of the struggle to ascend, acknowledging the opposing forces of weight on the mechanics of living. It’s an act of will every day.”

Crowded House’s Legacy

Crowded House has sold over 15 million records worldwide and earned numerous awards, including a Brit Award, 13 Australian ARIA Awards, 3 Aotearoa Music Awards, and an MTV VMA. The band has consistently sold out tours on multiple continents and captivated audiences for nearly four decades.

Originally founded by Neil Finn, Nick Seymour, and the late Paul Hester, the group’s self-titled debut in 1986 went platinum, uplifted by worldwide smashes “Something So Strong” and “Don’t Dream It’s Over,” which has been covered by artists like Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, and U2.

In 1996, the group delivered a legendary performance to an audience of over 150,000 on the steps of the Sydney Opera House, beginning a hiatus that ended in the wake of Paul’s passing in 2005. This led to albums Time on Earth (2007) and Intriguer (2010) and a return to the Sydney Opera House for three unforgettable nights.

2018 saw Neil join Fleetwood Mac as a full-time member, canvassing the globe on a massive world tour. Two years later, he and Nick led another era of Crowded House, forming the band’s current lineup. They released their first full-length offering in eleven years, the unanimously acclaimed Dreamers Are Waiting (2021), and the band embarked on a rapturous world tour in support.
