Born and raised in South London, Henry graduated from the Royal Academy of Music in 2016 and has gone on to perform and collaborate with the likes of Jason Marsalis, Terence Blanchard and Jean Toussaint.
He released his Sony debut Easter EP in early 2018, drawing from jazz, hip-hop, R&B and punk. The EP sees Henry tackle a broad range of material in his original tracks and re-arrangements of tracks by revered US rapper Nas and indie punk trio The Enemy; it is an imaginative project that marks Henry out as an important new voice on the UK music scene.

‘It’s well-proven that hip-hop and jazz make great partners. Following in the lineage of Robert Glasper, Madlib, and Makaya McCraven, Ashley Henry’s work on the piano sensitively reaches into both worlds.’ The Fader
