Henry Green says
With my music I like to try and create an alternate space to the one we live in, somewhere a lot slower and more chilled. I treat every song as an escape from the norm and try to create soundscapes that reflect this theme, using effects and electronics.
My time with Harboured Sounds was really enjoyable, they’re a great team and are doing a great thing for Bristol musicians! Henry Green

“British newcomer Henry Green is the kind of artist who can make a small impact with small means. The small town singer-songwriter’s visceral voice may be gentle in appearance but it can peel off a song as melancholy as his debut single Shipwreck to its darkest soul” Tina Karkinen
