music

I play every instrument on all of my albums, including piano, organ, acoustic and electric guitars, fretless bass, sitar, and synthesizers. I write a wide range of genres and my inspirations range from classical symphonies to alt rock to progressive rock to new age. I write, perform, edit, and publish several albums a year on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play, Tidal, Rdio, and more.


Silvasomnia

A lush, ethereal, introspective piece somewhere between progressive and classical, featuring sitar and bamboo flutes.

Christmas Album 2016

Ten classic Christmas songs arranged in a variety of genres.

My Day On The Moon

A highly abstract 49-minute trip to the moon's surface. And when I say trip, I mean trip.

Arctic Chameleon

My longest and most eclectic album yet, with everything from grand piano solos to instrumental rock to electronic beats to its namesake 21-minute symphonic composition.

Temple in the Woods

A long, meditative instrumental landscape of dream-like piano, guitar, sitar, organ, and psychedelic rock.

The Ocean in Her Eyes

A seamless six-part instrumental rock album with classical piano motifs, dedicated to my girlfriend of three years.

The Longest Night

An introspective, gentle prog-rock-like 24-minute instrumental depicting the course of a night as it transforms from a melancholy evening to strange dreams and nightmares, and finally to a sunny morning.

Life and Death

A short solo piano EP that follows a life through six stages. This album was my high school senior project.

Lost in Space

A ten-minute symphonic piece about an astronaut who becomes lost in space and is unable to return home.

San Diego

An older ten-minute instrumental song in three movements, inspired by my time in California.



about me

Hi, I'm Henry.

I'm a visual designer and musician.

I help people share their ideas with the world by wrapping them in great-looking visual packages—websites, videos, logos, posters, and more. I create clean, modern designs and I insist on creating every piece of the puzzle myself. You don't half-ass what you do, so don't let someone else half-ass its design.

In my spare time I write music, sketch cars, run a bunch of websites, and meditate in the woods. I even dabble in photography and writing.

"Wow, this guy's got everything! What's next?" Check out my resumé and send me an email, that's what.
