Drawing from the pure art of songwriting, Taylor Henry has managed to remain a true craftsman of the trade. Taylor Henry attributes his journey towards music to meeting the musical genius himself, James Taylor, when he was 16-years-old. From that moment on, he dedicated his life to using his voice to express his story and emotions in a way that will resonate with people everywhere.

As a recording and touring artist, Henry has shared the stage with some of the industry’s prominent names including Blake Shelton, Bo Bice and The Charlie Daniels Band. He has an ability to fill a space with his unique sound, and the purity of songwriting that allows him to shine bright in a cloud of pop-centric performers.
The pathway has not been easy as Henry has often felt challenged to change in order to fit the mold of society’s taste in music.

Despite the difficulties, he has been able to maintain a steady career and is currently In the studio and plans to release an EP in early 2016.
When you hear his original songs "Me & You” and "You're Everything”, it is easy to see the influences of the raw folk sounds of the 60’s mixed with his early love of progressive rock. His tenor vocals paired with rhythmic, soul filled guitar skills are his distinctive attributes.
Taylor Henry has taken a risk by returning to the roots of music rather than opting in for flashy stage performances and overly produced tracks. Prepare to be surprised by the power of simplicity and authenticity.
