Phil Henry

Singer-songwriter Phil Henry has always believed in making it himself. As a kid, he was never content to only look at art, but instead he had to paint and draw something new. An avid fan of music, Phil studied the masters in music school but was drawn to the DIY pluckiness of folk music. He concentrated on steel-string guitar and writing his first original compositions.

Phil’s songs reflect that same creative drive. He builds detailed worlds and characters who speak through Phil’s words. The upbeat acoustic rhythm and melodic sensibility and lush instrumental treatment is no carbon-copy of popular or folk radio songs, but is instead an expression of Phil’s individuality and craft.

Vermont’s Seven Days calls it “vivid lyrical imagery that captures the imagination.” Twenty years later, Phil continues to make it all himself, recording and mixing albums from his home studio, booking concerts, shooting and producing videos, and designing cover art and posters. The sophistication of the work has grown: His songs have been recognized with concert wins at SolarFest and Susquehanna Music and Arts, and showcase sets at Falcon Ridge and Kerrville.

Phil’s music exudes the skills of a craftsman and the authenticity of an artist.
