Message from Henry: "Hi there! Thanks so much for coming to check out my profile! I would love to help make your event (be it a wedding, funeral, birthday, anniversary etc.) as special as possible with the *highest quality music* tailored to your personal requirements. I've been doing these gigs since I was knee-high to a grasshopper, so I now have a huge repertoire, and I also love to learn new stuff! This isn't just a weekend thing like it is for many people, this is my full-time profession and I really take pride in making my work the very best it can be. Hopefully, you can see from my videos and recordings that I am a very capable player across many genres. I'd like to also assure you I'm a nice guy too who isn't going to take you for a ride, that I really love and care about what I do! I am always looking to improve my service to you, so if you have any concerns, questions or comments, please please get in touch. Hopefully I can help bring your day together to be something you remember for the rest of your life. Thanks and best wishes, H."

I can not thank Henry enough for his liaison and patience in preparing music to be played for my brother's funeral. On the day, he was the consummate professional and nothing fazed him. His playing was so beautiful that it stilled the whole church. Everyone commented on the beautiful playing - just wonderful.

Henry was quite simply exceptional. He played spell-binding classical/electronic/folk pieces built up with a loop pedal, all of which he composed himself. He is incredibly talented, as well as very professional and a really nice guy! Thanks again for the amazing performance!

Henry has that rare ability of combining technical ability, creativity and sound musical knowledge.
