Joe Henry On NPR's Fresh Air Today

The immensely talented musician/producer Joe Henry will be making an appearance on the popular NPR radio show Fresh Air today, November 10th. He will be discussing both his acclaimed new album Reverie and his career as a Grammy winning producer with the show's host Terry Gross.

Henry, who was recently proclaimed "one of America's best songwriters" by The New York Daily News, will also be performing a select string of East Coast dates where he and some specially selected musicians will perform his new album in its entirety.

Henry is also a multi Grammy winning producer with credits that include Solomon Burke, Bettye LaVette, Mose Allison, The Carolina Chocolate Drops and more. Reverie is a beautifully raw and raucous album created when Henry and his fellow musicians convened in Henry's basement studio for days of exploration.

Critical Acclaim For Joe Henry's Reverie:

"Henry follows up the excellent "Blood from Stars"--a 2009 record that drew comparisons to the work of Tom Waits--with the equally excellent "Reverie," an acoustic-based collection of songs that build on a blues and folk foundation but range as far and wide as any album this year. - New Yorker

"In Reverie, Joe Henry and his group have created a raw, raucous and messy masterpiece." - American Songwriter

"Henry's really upped the ante here. Reverie is a mesmeric, all-acoustic invocation of it's title, creaky old acoustic guitars, yellowed piano ivory and the rattle and thump of bandaged-sounding drums conjuring a late-night jam at the junk shop." - Mojo
