Off the heels of his “‘Best’ Year Yet” (SPIN) and four 2022 Grammy nominations, keyboard virtuoso, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Cory Henry announces his 2022 world tour kicking off on April 13 in Australia. While down under, Cory will perform at the famous Byron Bay Bluesfest and headline shows in Melbourne and Sydney. In May, he’ll make a short return statewide to play at Beale Street Music Festival and Ground Up Music Festival, and then head to Japan for a run of dates at Billboard Live in Tokyo, Yokohama and Osaka. His summer rounds out with a series of includes festival performances including Bonnaroo, Summerfest, Electric Forest, Summer Camp, Festival International de Jazz de Montréal, Ottawa Jazz Festival, Madrid's Noches del Botánico, and shows at Red Rocks, KOKO (London), Amsterdam Bostheater, and Tel Aviv's Barby. This fall, Los Angeles fans can catch a hometown performance on October 15 when Cory headlines The Fonda.

Arriving alongside the tour announcement is Cory’s latest single “The Fool.” “The Fool” sees Cory continue to push soul music forward into uncharted territory while paying homage to great soul visionaries such as Stevie Wonder and Prince. Cory’s unique “future soul” sound earned him a Grammy nomination this year for his 2020 solo album Something to Say, nominated in the Best Progressive R&B Album category. The first body of work solely produced by Henry, Something to Say showcases his multi-instrumental skills and powerfully mines 2020’s challenging emotional terrain.

One of the music industry’s most in-demand collaborators, Cory earned three more Grammy nominations this year for his contributions as a co-producer/writer on Ye’s DONDA, nominated for both Album of the Year and Best Rap Album, and Eric Bellinger’s New Light, nominated in the Best Progressive R&B Album category. Cory’s soulful organ soundscapes can also be heard on Imagine Dragons’ “Follow You,” Frank Ocean's “Come On World, You Can't Go!,” Rosalía’s “G3 N15,” and the new Red Hot Chili Peppers single “Poster Child.”
