Joe Henry is a songwriter, artist, and storyteller, who has left an indelible and unique imprint on American popular music during his 30 year career. Henry is celebrated for his exploration of the human experience and for working across a broad swath of American musical styles — rock, jazz and blues — rendering genre modifiers useless. In 2013, Algonquin Press published, Furious Cool: Richard Pryor and the World that Made Him, a book co-written with his brother, and in 2014, Henry released his thirteenth album “Invisible Hour” on his own label, Work Song. As a solo artist and producer, Henry has collaborated with many notable American artists from T Bone Burnett, Daniel Lanois, and Van Dyke Parks on one side of the spectrum, to Don Cherry, Ornette Coleman, Brad Mehldau, and Bill Frisell on the other. A three-time-GRAMMY-winning producer, Henry has made records for Bonnie Raitt, Hugh Laurie, Lisa Hannigan, Elvis Costello, Solomon Burke, and many others. In October 2015 Henry helmed a session for the late Allen Toussaint. That album is due out June 10 on Nonesuch Records.
