Carson Henley

Carson, a Suzuki-trained piano player from age 3, was taught to appreciate "timeless" music. His mother (a professional singer) and his record-collecting father made sure he and his musical siblings grew up listening to the classics; often cranking up night-long jam sessions with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, James Taylor, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.

It’s not surprising that Carson’s music has a vintage soul, with a modern rock edge, earning comparisons to Joe Cocker, James Morrison and Maroon 5.
Carson’s latest album, 100 HOURS, won the 2013 Independent Music Award for Best Pop Album, was named #2 Album of the Year by Blues Rock Review, and includes SongDoor’s 2013 Songwriting Winner for the single, Go Under. In 2013, Carson was named a Top 10 Finalist in Guitar Center’s Nationwide Singer-Songwriter Competition.

Carson’s live shows have drawn sold out crowds, and his voice eventually drew the attention of the NFL’s World Champion Seattle Seahawks, who invited him to sing their National Anthem. UK’s Mofilm also found Carson’s performances inspiring, as they sent him to showcase at the world’s most coveted music festival, SXSW (Austin, TX). Carson’s first CD, Green Eyed Soul (2008), was named a Top 25 CD of the Year by Indie Music.com. His catalog of music is being played in contemporary American and European chain stores as branding music.
