Henry is a Nord-certified artist whose musicality and creativity have been shaped by many years of diverse musical experiences around the world.

 

Starting in 2011, Henry began studying at Berklee College of Music until he joined hip hop artist Hoodie Allen’s national American tour playing keyboards.  On tour, the band opened for Kendrick Lamar, was joined by G-Eazy, and performed at venues such as  Roseland, El Rey Theatre, and multiple Houses of Blues throughout the country.

Soon thereafter, Henry  moved to Seoul in 2013, deciding to further deepen the positive exposures to Korean culture he had  received from his Korean bandmates while leading their band, “Enter Autumn” at Berklee. 

In Korea, Henry became the first foreigner to have his or her music and music videos released by  Stone Entertainment (formerly CJ E&M), one of Korea’s largest Kpop and entertainment companies. 

 

After a few years, Henry relocated back to the states in 2016 and moved to New York, where he began  producing and composing both independently and at Electric Lady Studios for various artists such as Taj  Mahal’s daughter, Deva Mahal. 

In addition to scoring various South African, South Korean, British, and American short films while living in New York, Henry went on to compose, produce, and arrange the dark-funk soundtrack for  a music film, “They Say It’s Wonderful,” which features a combination of original soundtrack  compositions and drastically re-imagined interpretations of show tunes from The Golden Age of  Broadway. This project caught the attention of Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge, The Great Gatsby, Romeo  + Juliet) and Amanda Ghost (Beyonce, Florence + the Machine, Shakira), leading to their joint  collaboration on a Moulin Rouge The Musical mega-mix promotional track.

More recently, Henry produced, composed, engineered, and vocalized a 29-minute operatic concept album, “Ongoing Matter,” whose sound is a hybrid of upbeat-offbeat pop and industrial funk.  Every word and phrase of the album's lyrics appear in The Mueller Report. A feature article was written  up in Billboard in fall of 2020. 

Presently, Henry is creating remake/reimaginations of pop tunes for Hipgnosis, a UK-based Songs Fund. This music IP investment and song management company owns the publishing rights to songs by Neil Young, Blondie, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Shakira, Chic, Justin Bieber, and many others. The company was founded by Merck Mercuriadis and Nile Rodgers.
