Biography

Henry Fiol: singer, composer, percussionist, bandleader, producer, painter, and writer.

Born in New York City where he has always lived.

Father: Puerto Rican

Mother: Italian-American

Children: Henry Fiol is the father of three children. Orlando, the oldest, is a pianist/arranger/percussionist who sometimes performs with his father.

Education: Graduated from Hunter College where he studied art and received his bachelor’s degree, BFA.

Work Experience: Before beginning his career in music, he worked as an art teacher in the Catholic schools of New York, and then as a counselor for students with behavior problems for the NYC Board of Education.

Artist: During the era of the LP, he painted the cover illustrations for all of his albums—-in 1978 he won Latin New York magazine’s award for best album cover of the year for the cover of his first album with Saoco, “Siempre Seré Guajiro”—-but ever since the format for recordings was reduced down to the size of a CD, he has forsaken the use of his original art in favor of photography instead.

Composer: Over the years, the majority of the songs recorded by Henry Fiol have been of his own composition, and although he doesn’t read or write music, he has always been actively involved in the preparation of his arrangements as well.
