Born and raised in South London, Ashley Henry’s rapidly growing international profile recently embarked on an extensive world tour with Christine And The Queens who considers him as “the ultimate piano player”.
Following the widespread success of his Easter EP released in 2018, Henry’s sound is driven and shaped by alpha jazz pioneers like Maya Angelou, Common, MC Lyte, Leslie Thompson, Abbey Lincoln and Herbie Hancock.
Beautiful Vinyl Hunter is a provocative 15-track collection that effortlessly guides the listener through a variety of genres, ranging from contemporary jazz, grime, punk to hip hop and showcases Henry’s ability to knit all of his influences into a seamless tapestry – transporting jazz music to new realms of beauty.
