Henri Herbert is a piano-playing phenomenon, and definitely one of the best and most sought after boogie woogie blues piano men in the world. The former pianist of the mighty Jim Jones Revue now blazes his own trail with his critically acclaimed EP ‘Wired’, and the imminent release of his follow up EP ‘You Say’…
Henri Herbert has racked up an incredible 13+ Million YouTube hits and has already toured the UK, Canada, Holland, Spain and France. With a TV documentary under his belt, a Marc Riley BBC Radio 6 Music session, and sell-out headline shows in the UK, Herbert is firmly establishing himself as one to watch in 2017.
If you’ve ever seen Henri Herbert live – whether pounding the keys solo, with his new power trio or with The Jim Jones Revue – you’ll assuredly know there’s very few piano players on the planet who can feed so much power, emotion and sheer adrenaline-fuelled virtuosity into their performances. Born in France, and raised in the UK, at an early age he was drawn to records made by the piano-pounding pioneers Jerry Lee Lewis and Albert Ammons. He spent many long days and nights studying their styles, spinning them into what he calls “Supercharged Boogie”.
