About Henry Darragh

Henry Darragh is a talented multi-instrumentalist and composer currently working in Houston Texas while doing graduate studies at Moores School of Music. In addition to being a first-rate trombonist, Darragh can also play jazz piano, sing, compose, arrange, lead, educate, and inspire. To hear his debut CD Tell Her For Me one might think of him as an up and coming jazz songwriter who swings and croons vocals, but that would only be the latest chapter in his story.

Born and raised in Pasadena Texas, Darragh was surrounded by music from a young age, and felt he might eventually become a classical trombonist. But jazz was always lurking in the background. Fortunately he had instructors as early as 7th grade who were into jazz, and turned him onto classic recordings, and although he loved it then, jazz remained a kind of secret language until college. According to Darragh, “my family always had a piano in the house, which I used to teach myself bad habits.”
