Joe Henry On NPR's Fresh Air Today

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
