This week we asked past client and friend Henry Cole what advice as an independent artist he would like to share with other independent artists.
We weren't surprised with his answer. Henry is an incredibly intuitive artist who has used his instinct to make his visions a reality. His first release, Roots Before Branches, provided him with the reviews and feedback he needed to book international gigs and land a distribution deal!

I make every step/move/note/groove/song count and let that be my key to opening new doors every time I have the opportunity.
I keep myself focused all the time but I don't try to compete with the
system or the internet..that speed its not human speed. It's not real art speed.
I'm 100% honest at all times playing or creating or talking to people so
when I tell someone "My name is Henry Cole and I made one of the best
cd's of 2012 " I have proof of it.
I sent a page full of articles and reviews from rock paper scissors and boom-the president of a label called me and I find a distribution deal.
