Following the widespread success of 26-year-old Ashley Henry’s Easter EP, the genre-blurring UK pianist returns in full force with his debut studio album Beautiful Vinyl Hunter, set for release in June on Sony Music. Offering a journey into the visionary mind of one of the UK’s most creative young talents, the highly anticipated 15-track album draws on a heady brew of influences from jazz, beats, hip-hop, punk and grime and features collaborations with an impressive collective of innovators including former EartH headliner Makaya McCraven, Keyon Harrold, Ben Marc, Luke Flowers, MC Sparkz, Jaimie Branch, Binker Golding and Joshua Idehen. 

"Ashley Henry...he's the ultimate piano player, a beats futurist. His pathway makes the purer elements of jazz truly powerful and fresh. His music is simply beautiful & bold" – Christine And The Queens 

Listen to single Dark Honey (4The Storm) ft Makaya McCraven, is released 22 February 2019 and available to stream here: 

Having recently embarked on an extensive world tour with Christine And The Queens, Henry is a young pianist with a rapidly growing international profile. Born and raised in South London, and a notable alumni of the Royal Academy of Music and BRIT School, Henry sees himself as a artist who can trace his music genes back two generations to his grandfather, who played piano by ear and jammed with the 1945 mento band The Jolly Boys in Jamaica; and his uncle, a professional session musician across the 1970s and ‘80s. Henry’s sound is driven and shaped by alpha jazz pioneers like Maya Angelou; Common; MC Lyte and Leslie Thompson to Steve McQueen; Abbie Lincoln and Herbie Hancock.
