On May 15th, Vermont’s musical bard Henry Jamison will enlist a who’s-who of indie rock royalty to collaborate with him on his ‘Tourism' EP (Color Study). Each track on the five-song collection will boast a celebrated featured vocalist, including Darlingside, Ed Droste, Fenne Lily, Joseph, and Lady Lamb, delivering Jamison’s most diverse and forward-thinking collection to date.
Jamison has earned his place among modern music’s revered storytellers and folk performers, having performed toured across the US and Europe alongside the likes of Caroline Rose, Darlingside, and Adrianne Lenker (of Big Thief) who described Henry's music as "songs that sing me through mazes of my own sensuality and sadness, help me to feel less alone in the journey to understand myself more deeply and to face gaping wounds,” while also being critically acclaimed by the likes of Billboard, American Songwriter, The Fader, Rolling Stone and Consequence of Sound.
Raised by a classical composer father and an English professor mother, Jamison was drawn to music and lyrics from his earliest days, and began recording his own homemade cassette tapes while he was still in elementary school. Going further back in Jamison's lineage, you'll find George Frederick Root, the most popular songwriter of the Civil War era and the author of the iconic "Battle Cry Of Freedom." Keep going even further to 14th Century England and you'll find poet John Gower, a favorite of Chaucer and King Richard II.
