ABOUT JOE HENRY
Joe Henry spends his time writing songs, producing records, performing, recording, scoring films, writing essays, books…you name it. He has worked with an incredibly diverse range of musicians—from Elvis Costello to Ornette Coleman to Richie Havens—earning multiple Grammys as a producer along the way. A hyperliterate storyteller, he draws an author's eye for the overlooked detail across a broad swath of American musical styles -- folk, rock, jazz and blues -- rendering genre modifiers useless. Henry has produced 4 Grammy-Winning records: Don’t Give Up On Me (Solomon Burke), Genuine Negro Jig (Carolina Chocolate Drops), A Stranger Here (Ramblin’ Jack Elliott), and Slipstream (Bonnie Raitt).
