“One of the brightest new lights on the east coast music scene”
Troy Greencorn, Artist Director, Stanfest/Executive Director, DeCoste Performing Arts Centre
With a voice as powerful as a wayward freight train, singer-songwriter Joe H Henry bellows the flames of gritty roots with a whole lot of soul.
The son of award-winning Canadian country musician Harvey Henry, Joe was born to sing. Gifted with a one-of-a-kind voice and a love for story telling through song, drawing from his musical roots and Metis heritage of the Red River Valley.
Joe’s younger years were spent riding freight trains from town to town with nothing but a faithful dog and a guitar, collecting life lessons and harnessing the flame of inspiration that was often masked in struggle.
Eventually settling down in North Mountain, Nova Scotia, Joe is now ready to share his talent with the world. He is releasing his debut EP, Wilder on the Mountain in June 2023 at the Carleton.
Joe was featured at most major festivals across Nova Scotia this summer, including Stanfest, Cavendish Beach, and Canada Day, Halifax and will be one of the headliners at Halifax Urban Folk Festival in September. He recently joined the cream of Nova Scotia’s star talent at Halifax’s Scotiabank Centre arena for the Wildfire Recovery Concert at which he brought the audience to its feet as he performed an original song written specially for the occasion.
“Every once in a while we come across an artist that simply demands stage time at the Carleton and Joe H. Henry is certainly one of those”.
Mike Campbell, Programming Director, The Carleton/Artistic Director, Halifax Urban Folk Festival
