ABOUT

'There's an ageless quality to Jack Henderson's songwriting, reminiscent of Leonard Cohen's wittier moments, or even early Tom Waits in his barfly-poet persona' - Clash Magazine

'Henderson is a crooner and a rocker, a romantic and a raconteur singing dark, moody songs' - Maverick

Henderson has the travelled air of a Jack Kerouac: born in Scotland, brought up in Portsmouth and London before heading west. As well as performing his own material during his years in the States Henderson toured and recorded extensively with Americana band Over The Rhine, rootsy Canadian outfit Cowboy Junkies and shared stages with the likes of Buddy Miller, Sarah Mclachlan and Ron Sexsmith.

Henderson's latest studio album, This Daring Light, was recorded in New York with Patti Smith's producer and bass player, Tony Shanahan and features contributions from Marc Ribot, (Tom Waits, Elvis Costello), Tony Garnier (Bob Dylan, Paul Simon), Jon Graboff (Ryan Adams, Sheryl Crow). However, as Jack is keen to point out - 'The most important thing remains the song. That's what has to stand up. If it doesn't everything else is a waste of time'.
