Biography

Carl Henry puts the riddim in rhythm and blues. Born in Jamaica and raised in Montreal, the island crooner blends the rumble of dancehall reggae with the smooth stylings of R&B and soul. He grew up singing in a church choir; years of vocal training have shaped a voice that slinks, shudders and soars.

Carl Henry, has toured all over North America and Europe, supporting U.S. stars like Mary J. Blige, De La Soul and Ashanti. Home in Canada, he has earned Juno Award nominations four years in a row . RNB, his full-length debut, was recognized for Best R&B/Soul Recording in 2003; singles Homie’s Girl, Bare As She Dare (featuring Ce’Cile) and Hot Gal (featuring Rally Bop)
were nominated for Best Reggae Recording in 2004, 2005 and 2006 respectively.

RNB delivered passionate, late-night murmurs with songs like One Night Stand, Sex U and Did U Really. The album’s title was literal: RNB is straight-up R&B from beginning to finish. (Same goes for Solution RNB, its French-language version.) Henry is proud of his first effort, but says it reflected only a narrow band of his full range.

On the I Wish album Carl combines his myriad influences — R&B, dancehall, pop, soul, gospel, etc. (CeSoul Music, distribution by DEP/Universal in Canada).

The moment is ripe, given reggae’s increasing influence on urban music. “This is a great time for me, because reggaeton and dancehall are really stepping to the forefront,” he says. “People are willing to give it a chance, wanting to give it an ear. I’m glad that I’m able to make music that reflects that.”
