Biography

Keaton Henson (born 24 March 1988)is an English folk rock musician, visual artist and poet from London.

As a musician Henson usually sings and plays guitar. Henson suffers from serious stage fright and, as a result, he rarely plays concerts. His art show “Hithermost” took place at the Pertwee, Anderson & Gold gallery in London in January 2013 and “sold quickly”. He has also released a wordless graphic novel called “Gloaming”, published by Pocko, which is “essentially a field guide to a spirit world beyond our reality”.

Keaton Henson was born in 1988 in London, England. He is the son of actor Nicky Henson and ballet dancer Marguerite Porter.

Originally Henson was an illustrator. He designed the artwork for various albums including Dananananaykroyd’s Hey Everyone! and Enter Shikari’s Take to the Skies. Henson recorded songs in his apartment in London, initially purely for his own consumption. He gave a recording of one of the songs as a gift for his best friend, and was encouraged to put music online. In November 2010 his debut album Dear… was released on Motive Sounds Recordings, in a limited edition which he made by hand himself. In 2011 he released a single, “Metaphors”, on Porchlight Records. He also recorded “Don’t Be Afraid” for the Tormented soundtrack.

Henson’s breakthrough came when Zane Lowe played “You Don’t Know How Lucky You Are” on BBC Radio 1 for the first time on Wednesday 7 September 2011, saying: “That piece of music right there is one of the most special pieces of music I’ve heard in a very very long time”. The play received a rapturous reaction from listeners.
