‘The unlikely hit of the Big Chill, Henry sets up in fields, armed with a guitar played with his teeth and tiny drum kit played with his feet. A one-man band Jimi Hendrix Experience. Possibly quite mad, but brilliant.’ – Dave Simpson, The Guardian
Returning to the Birmingham festival, rock’n’roll whirlwind Lewis Floyd Henry is a one-man band with plenty of soul and licks that Clapton would happily claim as his own. In hipster London Lewis is known as the Balladeer of Brick Lane, the Hendrix of Hackney or the Dylan of Dalston! When his father came to England from Jamaica in the 1960s he brought plenty of Trenchtown reggae with him, a sound that, along with the blues, formed the cornerstone of Henry’s musical education.
