Bruce A. Henry is a vocalist, historian, storyteller, composer and performer extraordinaire. A baritone, whose three-and-a-half octave range allows him to sing tenor, alto and falsetto, Bruce has a pure voice with a versatility few can match.
Bruce's music has taken him to five continents, and he has recorded for Disney, HBO and numerous national ad campaigns. In addition, Bruce has performed with and opened for the likes of Doc Severinson, Roberta Flack, Chris Botti, Ramsey Lewis, Stephane Grapelli, Jimmy Jam and The Sounds of Blackness.
Henry's eclectic vocal style has been influenced by legends such as John Coltrane, Leon Thomas, Gil Scott Heron, Al Jarreau, Nina Simone and Marvin Gaye. He has a deep understanding of the connection between history, music and culture, and how generations of expression build upon one another.
Bruce developed The Evolution of African American Music to teach the rich connection from traditional African music to the contemporary music we hear today.
