Bringing their unique soul, jazz and gospel music – Cory Henry and his band will bless Australia with their debut Bluesfest performance and tour!

Fans call him the next Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder marvels at his musicianship, Frank Ocean has him on his next album. Simply put Cory Henry, a Grammy Award winning artist, composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist and all-around keyboard master, is the future of music!

At the age of two, Cory began playing the organ and by high school, he was a permanent fixture in New York’s rising star venue the Village Underground. From there, his career in music catapulted him onto touring stages with legends like Roots, Kirk Franklin and Kenny Garrett and earned him a Grammy with jazz ensemble Snarky Puppy.

In 2018, Cory independently released his first collection of songs entitled ‘Art of Love’ and has worked with Lauryn Hill, Frank Ocean, J. Cole, Vulfpeck, Bruce Springsteen, Robert Randolph, The Roots, Marcus Miller, Michael McDonald, Ty Dolla $ign and many more, but it's as head of his own band that his stardom has soared. He was selected by Quincy Jones to headline his curated ‘Soundtrack of America’ series opening of The Shed in New York City. Now, Cory Henry is back with a new album of ‘future soul’, ‘Something To Say’. Born from a period of deep reflection, Cory translates his feelings into song and tackles subjects like love, breakups, social consciousness, injustices and the effects of being emotionally drained. Throughout each message on ‘Something To Say’, Cory ultimately hopes to unify listeners through a solid foundation of music that people can feel.
