In addition to producing a wide array of other artists – Bonnie Raitt, Aaron Neville, Loudon Wainwright III, Bettye LaVette, Allen Toussaint – Joe Henry is an accomplished songwriter and singer who has been recording his own material since the 1980s. During the 1990s he honed his craft by working with the likes of T Bone Burnett, Daniel Lanois and The Jayhawks. By the 2000s he had established his own recording studio along with a group of extremely talented musicians such as Greg Leisz, Jay Bellerose and David Piltch who help him create his unique sound. As a songwriter, Joe Henry is one of the most literary around, drawing comparisons to the likes of Tom Waits and Bob Dylan. Joe Henry has just released his 13th album, 'Invisible Hour'.
