Samia Finnerty’s parents are actors, and she’s done a fair amount of that herself. But it’s her brutally honest songs, uncouched in metaphors, and more so, the gliding ache in her voice, that make you sit up and take notice of this 25-year-old songwriter. She’s working on her new album, Honey, out early next year. But she and guitarist Boone Wallace play a version of “Stellate”, off her 2020 release, The Baby, backstage at ACL Fest.
