Almost from the start, Jack Henderson knew he wanted to be a songwriter.
Immersed in music, the Scottish artist immediately began using it to express himself. As Jack commented recently: “The first chord I learned was G major and the most natural thing to do with it seemed to be to write a song, and that remains the case to this day.”
Old before his time, the singer trades blows with a veteran band, whose experiences include stints alongside Eric Clapton, Marianne Faithful and more.
There’s an ageless quality to Jack’s songwriting, reminiscent of Leonard Cohen’s wittier moments, or even early Tom Waits in his barfly-poet persona.
‘Bethlehem’ is a wonderfully festive track, re-casting the birth of Jesus as a very modern tale. On backing vocals you’ll find Joan As Policewoman, surely the highest compliment we could give Jack Henderson.
