Cory Henry is a Grammy Award winning artist, composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist and all-around keyboard master. Growing up in Brooklyn, New York, Cory Henry’s childhood existed within the pages of sheet music. At the age of two, Cory began playing the organ and by high school, he was a permanent fixture in New York’s rising star venue the Village Underground. From there, his career in music catapulted him onto touring stages with legends and earned him a Grammy. In 2020 he returned with the project Something To Say. Born from a period of deep reflection, Cory translates his feelings into song and tackles subjects like love, breakups, social consciousness, injustices and the effects of being emotionally drained. Throughout each message on Something To Say, Cory ultimately hopes to unify listeners through a solid foundation of music that people can feel.
