Bruce A. Henry

Bruce A. Henry was born in West Point, Mississippi, home of Howling Wolf, and was singing publicly by the age of 5 in his Baptist church on the West side of Chicago. His musical education as a child included immersion in the work of Count Basie and Duke Ellington, favorites of Bruce's father (a pianist and Bruce's first musical mentor). Although he was classically trained at the Chicago Conservatory of Music, his love for improvisation proved to be a stronger calling. Influenced by Nina Simone, Al Jarreau and John Coltrane, to name a few, Bruce's journey has resulted in an eclectic style of world influenced jazz vocals and composition. Bruce possesses a three and one-half octave range, a pure voice with versatility and depth that few can match. His passion for an ever-expanding vision, both musically and personally, is the heart of his new release Connections.
