The American multi instrumentalist Cory Henry is recognised as an organ player, pianist, and a gospel musician. At the threshold of his 30s, he has already toured with artists like Bruce Springsteen, Aretha Franklin, P. Diddy, Robert Glasper, Boyz II Men, The Roots, and many gospel musicians. He got acquainted to the classical sound of the Hammond organ at the age of three, later the organist has toured with Kenny Garret and he has also been part of the Grammy-winning super group Snarky Puppy.
In his music, he focuses on the roots of gospel, jazz, and soul – showing that the organ isn’t just an instrument made for church ceremonies. Cory Henry is also a fantastic singer and songwriter whose creations stand out with a deep meaning and emotionality. He can bring together futuristic and retro, experimental and classical music and that’s what makes him one of the most interesting band leaders and creators of the music world today.
