    Andre Henry

    By Lorne Behrman The struggle between the sacred and secular has produced some divine music. From Al Green and Little Richard, to countless blues artists, many have struggled reconciling their devotion to the church to their passion for popular music. Bible teacher and worship leader Andre Henry was studying to be a minister when he stopped battling his inner Michael Jackson. He says: “I realized whatever I believe informs what I create. If I stay authentic and true I'll still get the message out.” The Atlanta, Georgia born singer-songwriter has garnered favorable comparisons to Stevie Wonder, John Legend, and Prince. His silky accessibility is refreshingly diverse and invigoratingly hooky, drawing from soul, jazz, and pop. “People see someone young and black and expect me to do hip hop and straight up R&B. I really had to prove of myself,” he explains. “My first performance was at church, this little kid doing his Elvis thing to ‘This Little Light of Mine.’ All the church ladies loved it,” he says, chuckling. Early on Andre was exposed to an eclectic blend of influences, the soft rock worship music at church, reggae music from his family’s Caribbean roots—his father had a touring reggae band—classic soul, Motown, Top 40 pop and R&B, and Michael Jackson. “I remember being 9 and thinking ‘Michael Jackson got paid for being awesome for a living.’ I wanted to be awesome for a living,” he says laughing. His formative songwriting influence was Stevie Wonder. In tenth grade he received a Stevie Wonder greatest hits compilation and began taking a music theory course. Jointly these two events led to his first forays into exploring songwriting. He applied his theory lessons to figuring out Stevie Wonder songs, and from there he began following his own muse. “I recorded my first album to raise money to buy a suit to wear to the junior prom,” he recalls. “I recorded it in my basement on Fruity Loops, got some friends to guest on it, and sold it around school.” Upon graduating high school, he left Atlanta and headed east. “I first came to New York to sing at a church, then never left!” exclaims Andre. He took a fulltime job at the church and began regularly gigging at Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson famed soul club Sugar Bar. At the Sugar Bar his light-shining-within stage presence quickly made him a regular and a favorite among the celebrity clientele. One night acclaimed poet and author Maya Angelou exclaimed: "He's dancing to his own orchestra up there." His finely crafted songs and honeyed vocals made a powerful impression in the Sugar Bar scene. Club regular, and Ashford & Simpson’s daughter, Nicole Ashford, became his manager. Before long her parents were believers too. “They came to a show and Nick said: ‘No one moves like you! And you have some really good songs,’” Andre recalls still buzzing from the encounter. The duo invited him to collaborate on Sir Cliff Richard’s Soulicious album. “Valerie Simpson called me at 8:00 AM one morning. I had no idea who it was, but when I heard it was her, I cleared my throat quick to make like I was awake. After I got off the phone with her I danced around my apartment,” Andre says incredulously. Three hours later he was at Ashford & Simpson’s personal studio arranging four songs, including Andre’s original entitled “Don’t Say You Love Me (It’ll Ruin My Day).” The payback R&B pop of “Don’t Say You Love Me (It’ll Ruin My Day)” won The ASCAP Foundation’s Reach Out and Touch Award in Honor of Nick Ashford, an award to invest into the career of a promising songwriter. “This was the first song I allowed myself to just say exactly what I felt, like with the lyrics ‘I don't give a damn if you want me...I don't give a damn if you leave.’ I was worried about saying ‘damn’ as a minister,” Andre says. He is currently a teacher and the worship director at Glad Tidings Tabernacle in TriBeCa. “I asked my pastor about it,” he explains. “She was really supportive, reminding me of C.S. Lewis' book A Grief Observed.” Andre Henry’s debut EP, Insomnia, is a vibrant neo soul offering with darkly emotive lyrics. He’s since had a wonderfully drastic inner transformation that’s inspiring new music. “I feel reborn now with a new sense of confidence and light,” he offers.“I’ve started opening up more to my rock and singer-songwriter influences.” This fresh sense of awe and unflinching optimism is currently guiding Andre as he works on new recordings. “Music literally saved my life. When I was nearly immobilized by depression, I used to sing to myself...and I knew that I could make it one more day. A part of my recovery was getting in touch with who I really am at the core. I'm still on that journey as an artist as well. I want my music to be a reflection of that and my sound to be truer than ever before.”

    Sean Renner continues to forge a unique musical path defined by his groundbreaking recording projects like Seven days, and by his ability to single-handedly craft the unique elements that make up his inimitable, Organic-Electronic, Indie R&B sound. On stage, Renner has created an incredibly unique and engaging loop-based performance that brings to life the distinctive vocal stylings and electronic production he skillfully manicures on his records. Combining vocals, live drums, keyboards, and sampling with his signature style of looping, Renner has covered nearly all of the continental US, with over 150 shows throughout 7 national and regional tours in 36 states. Renner’s music has aired on 150 radio stations across the US and has been featured in television shows including MTV’s “True Life” and “Catfish: the TV Show”.
    Renner's most recent release, Flora, commemorates his time spent living in Colorado from 2010 to 2016. Flora collects four double-sided singles that each represent a distinct period during Renner's time in the Centennial state. With Flora, Renner places his ethereal vocal stylings at the forefront, surrounding them with spacious, manicured electronic-organic music that puts him comfortably in the vein of other Downtempo Electronic, and Indie R&B artists like James Blake, Little Dragon, and Lykke Li. Flora creates a sonic environment that is warm and inviting, and that shines an intimate light into Renner's world. Music from Flora was recently featured on Colorado Public Radio’s Open Air Spring 2017 music sampler and The Denver Post’s “Steal This Track” blog.

    They came out of nowhere. Suddenly in September 2013, a never before heard musical format refreshed Bogota’s music scene. It was fatsO, playing one of the most important jazz festivals in Colombia, Jazz in The Park. They possessed everything the jazz scene was missing, edge, tone, strength and time packaged in a Blues, soul, jazz and Rock band with class A improvisers a contemporary raspy voice and a unique live performance that put them on the map.
     
    fatsO was formed as a trio in 2008, they played a few shows, produced and recorded some original tracks, but they rapidly noticed what they were missing to become a professional show. The next few years were spent perfecting their craft, their showmanship and their recordings, by 2013 they reappeared as a septet ready to shock the world.
     
    Soon enough after their new day view, fatsO’s music was being played on national radio and their show was being booked at the most important, rock, jazz and pop festivals and venues in Colombia including Rock in The Park (The biggest free entrance festival in Latin America), Circulart (The most known music conference in Medellin, Colombia), Festival Centro (Bogota), Julio Mario Santo Domingo Theater (one of the biggest one in Colombia), Estereo Picnic Festival (Colombia’s biggest alternative music festival) , “Feria de Las Flores Festival” (the biggest festival in Medellin, Colombia),  Mompox Jazz Fest, just to mention a few. fatsO were also chosen to be the opening act of Joe Satriani’s concert in Bogotá as part of his world tour.
     
    Three number one hits on national radio (Radionica, radionica.rocks), important local music prize nominations (Shock Music Prize in 2014 and 2016) and a very successful first album, made fatsO ready to amaze other countries. And so they did, achieving the number one slot of the eight available spots to showcase at Jazzahead in Germany, the worlds most important yearly jazz music conference and festival. Now, fatsO’s raw sound is where it always been meant to be, playing the most important jazz venues and festivals in Europe and still achieving the same reaction of the crowed, musicians and music professionals that they did that first show in Bogotá.
     
    fatsO continues to amaze and refresh every music scene they play. Their music, videos and performances have made them attractive to festivals, record labels, booking agencies and the general public. Now fatsO, conformed by Daniel Restrepo on upright bass and voice, Cesar Morales on drums, Santiago Jimenez on guitar and Daniel Linero on alto sax and clarinet are ready to reach new jazz circuits and territories where jazz enthusiasts have been demanding to see fatsO live.
