As a young singer and songwriter, Henry has already had his share of life changing experiences.
A talented rugby player and athlete, Henry was struck down at the age of 14 with a debilitating illness and then spent years in and out of treatment to ease the pain from the resulting arthritis. Quickly recognising that a sports career was a fading dream, Henry turned his focus to something else he loved; music.
As his talent developed, Henry began to perform at festivals wherever he could - from local gigs to national competitions for unsigned acts. But as success appeared around one corner, tragedy appeared around another; Henry’s oldest brother Tom died from an alcohol related illness.
Tom was more than just a big brother for Henry, he was a mentor, critic and a constant source of encouragement for him, even as he struggled with alcohol addiction in the months before his death. Tom’s perseverance only served as an additional inspiration for Henry to succeed, and, when Tom finally lost his battle on February 22nd 2013, Henry knew what he had to do.
Motivated to tell others about his experiences in life, Henry began writing songs that expressed his own personal experiences, both good and bad. Henry’s EP was released in 2014 and features his debut song “Lost Days” which has achieved over a million views on YouTube.
Henry is currently travelling around schools and prisons all over the UK where he shares his powerful and moving story and shows the music videos 'Lost Days,' 'Every Night And Day' and 'You're Beautiful.' Having someone young and trendy tell their story through music and words is proving so effective with the students and is making them aware of the potential dangers of alcohol.
The Prison Tour in 2015 was so successful that Henry has been approached in 2016 to visit more prisons where he performs and talks to the prisoners, trying to give them hope to go out into society, succeed and stay clean.
Finally Henry is recording new music in 2016 and releasing more powerful video's, one being a music video which he filmed in a closed down prison with ex prisoners and ex officers in the cast. Henry wrote the song by taking words that prisoners had said to him during his tour, turning them into lyrics.
