Heralded as “a blazing young pianist” by the New York Times and an “absolute badass [of whom] Jerry Lee would be proud,” Henri Herbert is one of the most impressive talents the blues and boogie world has unearthed in the past few decades. Herbert was born in Harfleur France, where he began to study music at a young age. As he developed his playing, two American musicians in particular caught his attention: Jerry Lee Lewis and Albert Ammons. By combining their influences, Herbert created his signature style of performing, which he refers to as “Supercharged Boogie Woogie.”
In the past two decades, Herbert has earned respect as an incredibly sought after sideman as well as solo act. From 2011 to 2014 he served as the keyboard player for The Tim Jones Revue, a well known UK based rock and roll group. Following that period, Herbert began to work on his solo work, recording the popular music video Henri’s Boogie and his first solo album, Boogie Woogie Piano. Herbert currently resides in Austin, Texas and frequently tours the United States as well as internationally.
