Bill Finocchiaro

Bill Finocchiaro took to drumming at an early age. His grandparents purchased his first drum set at 7 years old, and signed him up for lessons at Top Ten Music in Glenolden PA.

Listening to bands such as Led Zeppelin, Metallica, and RUSH through this iPod, he practiced privately until forming his first metal band “Far Beyond The Sunrise” in 2009.

Their releases included:

Eschatology EP 2010 (Mike Britt Recordings)
The Bellow EP 2012 (Bad Lab Studios)
Oppressor LP 2014 (Bad Lab Studios)
Self Titled EP 2015 (Famined Records)

Over their career, FBTS shared the stage with the following national acts:

Drop Dead Gorgeous
Greeley Estates
We Came As Romans
Memphis May Fire
Texas In July
I The Breather
Come The Dawn
In Dying Arms
Chasing Safety
The Road To Milestone
Gift Giver

From 2016-2018, Bill filled in for local metal act “The Artisan” when drummer Josh Hynson decided to pursue other musical endeavors.

Due to members moving, and changes in their personal lives, The Artisan decided to go on hiatus.


In late 2018, Bill joined the emo/alternative band “Stay”. The band wrote their freshmen album “iwillneveraskyouto” over the winter season, and worked with producer Jake Clarke of Retro City Studios (Philadelphia) during the spring of 2019.

Since the release of “iwillneveraskyouto”, Stay has released several music videos. Links to their social media can be found below:
