Henry Williams, Jr. Marries R&B & Jazz On ‘The Catalogue’
After several years releasing original music, Henry Williams, Jr. is back with his second LP, ‘The Catalogue.’
Henry Williams, Jr. dropped his debut back in 2013. ‘Mr. Nasty’ featured 10 tracks and served as his reintroduction to the world, as he’d spent years doing Top 40 converse in clubs around New York City. A few singles and an EP later, he’s back with his sophomore LP, ‘The Catalogue,’ and this time he’s doubled his original offerings. Yes, ‘The Catalogue’ houses an impressive 20 tracks that serve a variety of moods. Those who want to move about the dancefloor have “It’s You” while those looking for romance can turn to the embrace of “This One Is For You.” All 20 tracks were written, arranged, produced, and performed by Henry Williams, Jr. He also played and programmed all keyboards and drum machines, and played all of the alto saxophone solos.
His work ethic comes from his parents. Growing up in the Bronx, he watched his father put in long hours working for the New York Department of Sanitation, and watched his mother work even harder as an ER nurse. They put their all into the family and Henry Williams, Jr. couldn’t help but be inspired to do the same when it came to his life choices. He started creating music at the age of 12 but went on to business school after graduation. He worked a number of solid jobs over the years, but music always had a hold on him. So after work, he’d take the stage at various clubs singing covers, playing alto sax and singing background.
Today, he’s more focused on his original music that delivers wonderfully constructed R&B that comes alive with bits of jazz shining throughout.
