Joe Henry

In Conjunction with the Americana Music Association

Straight off the release of his 15th solo album, The Gospel According To Water, the GRAMMY Museum will welcome GRAMMY-winner Joe Henry for a conversation moderated by Scott Goldman, followed by a performance. In a career spanning more than 30 years, Joe Henry has left an indelible and unique imprint on American popular music. Known for his exploration of the human experience, Henry is a hyper-literate storyteller, by turns dark, devastating and hopeful.

His artist collaborations cross a variety of genres including T Bone Burnett, Ornette Coleman, and Billy Bragg with whom he was nominated for “Duo/Group of the Year” by the Americana Music Association for their collaborative album Shine A Light: Field Recordings From The Great American Railroad.

A producer on four notable GRAMMY-winning albums, Henry has made albums for Bonnie Raitt, Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens, Solomon Burke and more, and scored films including Jesus’ Son, Knocked Up and Motherhood. In 2013, Algonquin Press published, Furious Cool: Richard Pryor and the World that Made Him, a book co-written by Joe and his brother Dave Henry.
