Henry Parker brings a new sound to modern folk music, taking inspiration from the sixties and seventies revival. His style is a clear joining of the past and the present, a unique voice in the folk world that echoes with sounds of the tradition, whilst venturing beyond, into the realms of modern folk-rock and psych.
A devoted guitarist since childhood, Henry Parker’s musical roots go back to a self appointed upbringing in rock and heavy metal, yet, at the age of 20, paths were taken that led him adrift. Soon enthralled by the ethereal playing of Bert Jansch and Nick Drake; finger-picking and open tunings rapidly became the essence of his sound.
Coupled with a love for his immediate moorland surroundings of West Yorkshire, we are presented with a strain of informed and progressive folk music found nowhere else.
“Silent Spring, his debut album, brims with the spirit of traditional, progressive and psychedelic music that infused the Folk Rock scene of the early 70s.” – Northern Sky Magazine ★★★★★
