HENRY WAGONS, recently named one of Melbourne’s Top 100 Most Influential People, is unanimously lauded as one of Australia’s greatest and most entertaining performers. Along with his rare charisma he offers heavy doses of stomping outlaw country rock, irresistible crooning and classic songwriting. Henry could never be named a shrinking violet. While many other frontmen take gentle place in the calm of a shady palm tree and sing humble acoustic love songs on their solo debut, the Melbourne born entertainer has far more bombastic plans. After 5 albums with his band and a North American debut with the 2011 release of Rumble, Shake and Tumble Henry strikes out on his own with 'Expecting Company?' enlisting the help of six stellar guests: Alison Mosshart (The Kills, The Dead Weather), Sophia Brous, Canada’s Jenn Grant, Robert Forster (The Go-Betweens), Patience Hodgson (The Grates) and Gossling. A new band has been assembled as he premieres this brand new round of songs where it takes two to tango. In both the live forum and on record, Henry draws upon an uncommon range of influences including jump suit era Elvis, the grit between the floorboards at the Ole’ Opry, the spit in 70’s trumpet sections, Cormac MacCarthy’s psychedelic Westerns and Lee Hazlewood's dead but potent stares. His live show is a performance like no other, treading a line between a Vegas 70s showroom extravaganza and a bunch of freshfaced undertakers letting loose at a rained sodden rock festival. Having spent the last few years touring with the likes of Lucinda Williams, Justin Townes Earle, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zero’s, Calexico, Bill Callahan, Will Oldham, Okkervil River, John Hiatt, Jolie Holland, countless USA tours including SXSW and Americana showcases, it is safe to say that Wagons is a road-hardened formidable live act. “Wagons crafts a just-right mixture of the self-deprecating, the self-destructive and the self-referential throughout the album, and the result is suitable for blaring out of every bar from St. Louis to Sydney.” – National Public Radio USA "sounding like the lovechild of Nick Cave and Johnny Cash, Wagons proves his mettle as a songwriter" – Rolling Stone "Wagon’s smoky croon is reminiscent of a time when our rock stars were mysterious enigmas" - Tone Deaf Read more on Last.fm.
