Keaton Henson

In a ten-year career in which Henson’s work has been as diverse as it has been prolific, it is this small act of opening and closing the door, of letting the world in and shutting it out, which continues to form the struggle at the centre of his art. More masterfully than ever before, Henson’s music builds upon the tension between stripped back, transparent confessional piano-ballads, and layered, experimental outbursts of mournful orchestration.
