J-Henry grew up in New Jersey in a middle-class family alongside four brothers. Years of listening to his siblings' classic rock collections stirred a need to create his own Neil Young - Lynyrd Skynyrd - Led Zeppelin - inspired "rippin' rock."
J-Henry is back with his second CD entitled CODE RED, an album Henry describes as "A bit more developed as far as the writing and recording. Anthony and I added a lot of texture and instrumentation to this CD. We tried some violins, pedal steel guitar and used lots of vintage recording equipment and Amps. I am very happy about the quality of Code Red."
The first Americana single "I Love My NASCAR Weekends" came about from J-Henry’s experience touring the NASCAR circuit the past couple years. "We got to meet so many people and really understand the NASCAR fans and their incredible devotion to the sport" says Henry.
