Henry Wagons' debut solo album -After What I Did Last Night...' unleashes it's full sonic magnificence on discerning music lovers today. Twelve tracks make up a collection of songs that essentially chart Henry's life from his rowdy misspent youth to being a tour-hardened troubadour and new father.
-After What I Did Last Night...' was recorded in a haze of smoke and bluster at The Casino studio in Nashville, with a band of supreme players in full flight. The musicians on the album were gently corralled and wrangled straight from the dimly lit stages accompanying the likes of Justin Townes Earle, Jason Isbell, Caitlin Rose and Old Crow Medicine Show.
With the local launch tour looming large on the horizon, capturing the essence of the -East Nashville' album sound was always going to be tough! Never one to shy away from a challenge, Henry has found the answer, leading to what is bound to be a spectacular bunch of shows across the country.
Making his first ever trip to Australia, Henry will fly over the album's Tennessee based producer to the new Nashville stars, Skylar Wilson (Justin Townes Earle, Rayland Baxter and Andrew Combs). Skylar will use his supreme piano playing skills to sit in with Henry's solo band -The Only Children' and also act as musical director for the shows. The band will also include a swathe of local heroes featuring multiple ARIA award winner Matt Walker on guitar as well as members from Architecture In Helsinki and Dorsal Fins.
While Henry's band -Wagons' are on a well-earned break, the spotlight will not be given an opportunity to dim! Living out Henry's dream of recording an album in the spiritual home of so much of the music that has inspired his career, Mr Wagons is more pumped than ever to bring forth a show that harnesses the full force of his years of North American touring experience and bring it to his home turf. Get ready for Henry Wagons & The Only Children (ft. Skylar Wilson) to make the bar-room walls cave in around you like never before.
