Austin Bassist, Guitarist, Singer / Songwriter
A guitarist, bassist, singer/songwriter from Austin, Texas, Alex has been playing professionally in Texas since 1995 as the front man for several groups, as well as sharing the stage with several other bands and artists with his vocals, bass and guitar.
Influenced by blues, rock, folk, country, r&b, jazz, smooth jazz & gospel, Alex has recorded 3 of his own albums starting with the Alex Henley Band EP (glorified demo) in 2002. In 2009 he self released another EP called While They Were Sleeping, featuring one of his more liked songs, “Gray’s Song”. Most recently he’s collaborated with Mark Epstein and Shawn Tuthill on the acoustic album, The Trio Sessions.
Since 2006 Alex has toured in Europe several times, culminating in July 2010 at the Au Pre du Blues Festival in southern France. And although Alex plans to focus on playing bass behind other very talented artists (such as Karl Morgan, Denitia Odigie, Alyse Black & Ray Prim) there will still be some AH shows periodically in Texas and abroad.
