Gig Information

Henry Wagons is a true renaissance man, with a unique swagger reminiscent of a day when front men gave back bucket loads of charm and were shrouded in enigmatic mystery. Unanimously lauded as one of Australia’s great entertainers, a Henry Wagons show is a true sight to behold.

Drawing on a broad-ranging swag of influences, Henry’s show is a high sensation roller coaster ride that ranges from the bluster of sweaty jumpsuit era Elvis, to the somber, drunken malaise of Lee Hazlewood. He can touch on the tenderness of a recently heart-broken Roy Orbison while simultaneously embracing the menace of Nick Cave.

The past few years have seen Henry share stages around the world with Lucinda Williams, Justin Townes Earle, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, Calexico, Bill Callahan, Will Oldham, Okkervil River, John Hiatt plus more. Henry’s high profile festival appearances include Bonnaroo, Byron Bluesfest, Laneway, Bumbershoot, Big Day Out and Ottawa Blues as well SXSW and Americana showcases.

As tends to be Henry’s way, he always has a huge amount on the boil. After many years fronting the floor-fracturing outlaw band Wagons, Henry has recently recorded his first ever full length solo album entitled “After What I Did Last Night” in Nashville which was released in April 2016.

“Henry Wagons comes across like Nick Cave singing the Johnny Cash songbook” -TIMEOUT NYC
