Piano and keyboards: Henry Hey

New York pianist Henry Hey is no stranger to jazz audiences. As a bandleader and composer, Henry has brought his jazz groups RUDDER (with Chris Cheek, Tim Lefebvre, and Keith Carlock) and FORQ (with Chris McQueen, Michael League/Kevin Scott and Jason ‘JT’ Thomas) to essentially every major jazz festival in Europe and to stages throughout the world. As a sideman, Henry has appeared around the world with renown jazz leaders such as Donny McCaslin, Alex Sipiagin, Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts, Theo Bleckmann, Joe Locke, Seamus Blake, Till Bronner, Bill Evans, Cassandra Wilson, Chris Botti, Rosario Giuliani and many more. In addition to his passion for jazz and creative music, Henry is a musician who is fascinated by all areas of music. He’s been fortunate to work in top circles with pop and rock icons such as Rod Stewart, George Michael, Vanessa Williams, Empire of the Sun, and perhaps most notably with David Bowie, where Henry not only played on David’s penultimate album, The Next Day but also collaborated one-on-one with David as orchestrator arranger and musical director for what would be Bowie’s last work – the theatrical piece Lazarus.
