A rising keyboard master, composer, and GRAMMY-winning member of Snarky Puppy, Cory Henry has performed with artists ranging from Kenny Garrett and Robert Glasper to Bruce Springsteen. His 2014 release, First Steps, went to #1 on the iTunes jazz chart, and recently released his audacious, autobiographical sophomore project, The Revival.

A prodigious musician and Brooklyn native who began playing Hammond organ at the age of two, Henry performed at Harlem’s famed Apollo Theater as a six-year-old, while honing his musicianship in church. Established as a veteran by his teens, Henry branched out into secular music and quickly found a home as an in-demand instrumentalist, touring the world with saxophone giant Kenny Garrett by 19. He’s a core member of bassist and bandleader Michael League’s funk juggernaut Snarky Puppy, winning GRAMMY awards with them in 2014 and 2016, and currently leads his own hard-driving Funk Apostles band. With a style owing more to idols Oscar Peterson and Art Tatum than the typical Hammond organ heroes who preceded him, Cory Henry has captured the imagination of music fans of all stripes, creating an alchemy of gospel-inflected R&B, funk, jazz, and global influences that move the body and touch the soul.

«If anyone’s going to preach the gospel of the Hammond organ, it should be Cory Henry.» -Boston Globe
