Joe Henry is a singer, songwriter, guitarist and record producer.
Henry's first few albums were country or alt-country affairs, and earned mostly positive reviews.
1996's Trampoline saw Henry stretching out a bit, employing metal guitarist Page Hamilton (who demonstrated his own eagerness to stetch by collaborating on the album) and sounding less like country or folk music. One review noted the album's "idiosyncratic broadmindedness." 1
Fuse (1999) continued Henry's experimentalism with its trip hop shadings. One review of the album states that Fuse has "real weight, emotion and beauty that is both unmistakable and unforgettable." 2
