Cory Henry is a Grammy Award-winning composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist and all-around keyboard master.

Henry began touring in 2006, when he was 19 years old, and he has since hit the road with artists including Bruce Springsteen, Michael McDonald, P. Diddy, Boyz II Men, Kenny Garrett, The Roots and many more. He won three Grammy Awards as a member of Snarky Puppy before leaving the group in 2018 to launch a solo career that’s been highly successful itself.

Over the last two years, Henry was able to grow his audience exponentially with the release of three independent projects: Something to Say, Christmas With You and Best of Me. Throughout each album, his positive and motivating songs and lyrics have sought to unify listeners through one of the most difficult times in recent history.

Ahead of his performance at the TD Toronto Jazz Festival on Saturday, July 2, Henry joined us to talk about those projects and the music and messages that speak to him.
