Eclectic Singer-Songwriter Joe Henry Confirms New U.S. Tour
Solo shows will feature songs spanning Henry’s lengthy career and from his critically praised 2017 album Thrum
His lyrics studiously sidestep the obvious, the trite and the literal in favor of graceful allusions and mercurial metaphors that strive, like great poetry, to outwit the mind. That’s a tall order in a world that increasingly seems unable, or unwilling, to look beyond rigid literalism on almost any front. – THE LOS ANGELES TIMES
Acclaimed singer, songwriter and Grammy-winning producer Joe Henry has confirmed new U.S. tour dates. The run of solo shows will feature songs from Henry’s decades-long career as well as from his highly regarded 2017 album Thrum. See below for full tour dates.
A songwriter, musician, producer, poet, and essayist based in Los Angeles, Joe Henry has released 14 studio albums of his own over his 25+ year career and has worked with a diverse range of musicians – from Elvis Costello to Ornette Coleman to Joan Baez. Henry 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. He 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).
His latest album Thrum was released in October of 2017. American Songwriter called it: “Audacious and auspicious…akin to Van Morrison at his most impressionistic.”
