Henry Black is a singer-songwriter based in New York City. Clearly influenced by traditional American music, Black harkens back to these roots while remaining contemporary in setting. Weaving personal tribulations and societal trends and events, often in the same song, Black’s work stands as an independent narrative from the point of view of the modern young American. Eartothegroundmusic.com says, “…Black’s style is, as you will hear, both haunting and iconic. He has a perfect combination of youthful excitement and a savant’s ability…[he] shows a level of proficiency with this style that makes other folk musicians, even the greats, sound like amateur musicians.” Having played dozens of shows from 2015-2016, Black is already an established figure in the local and underground New York City Music scene. He has just completed his first tour through the United States, and is now preparing to release his first EP.
