NEW MUSIC \\ Listen to the first single from Ashley Henry’s star-studded debut album

3rd April 2019

London Pianist Ashley Henry has revealed details of his debut studio album, ‘Beautiful Vinyl Hunter’.

Following his ‘Easter EP’, Ashley Henry has announced that a 15 track album is on the way. It’s been hotly anticipated whilst he’s been touring with Christine and the Queens. His style, influenced by hip-hop, grime and classic jazz, has a timeless quality. Reflecting the album’s ethos, first single ‘The Mighty’ is a genre-bending track that showcases Ashley Henry’s varied roots and influences. 

The album features an incredible line up of artists from across Jazz and hip-hop scenes including: Makaya McCraven, Keyon Harrold, Ben Marc, Luke Flowers, MC Sparkz, Jaimie Branch, Binker Golding and Joshua Idehen. Of the album, Ashley Henry says; 

My music is a straight up reflection of who I am; London in all its mixed up glory. The immigrant in me has musical roots that are traced back to the 1600s, so it’s important my music today reflects that jazz alpha narrative across different genres and generations”.

Ashley continues: “Like everyone, I’m hunting for something. ‘Beautiful Vinyl Hunter’ takes you to some crazy places to meet some beautiful and crazy people, all you need to do is listen.”
