Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles


Cory Henry (born February 1987) is the keyboard player of Snarky Puppy, a group that has updated & refreshed instrumental soul music like nobody today, and whose performances were experienced by the Canarian public during their earlier participation at the Festival Internacional Canarias Jazz&Más Heineken. A musician who is astonishing the world with his ability to revitalize instrumental R&B, an organist capable of delighting all kinds of audiences with his Hammond. He is also a prestigious producer who has worked with some outstanding artists of today, such as Bruce Springsteen, The Roots, Robert Glasper, Kenny Garrett & Erykah Badu. He is a regular contender at the Grammy Awards and has won on three occasions and received two nominations.

As a member of Snarky Puppy he won a Grammy in 2016 for the album Sylva in the category Best Contemporary Instrumental Album and also in 2017 in the same category for the album Culcha Vilcha. Also with Snarky Puppy, he had won a Grammy award for Best R&B Performance together with Lalah Hattaway in 2014.

His solo career culminated in 2016 with the release of the disc The Revival, on the ‘Ground Up’ label pertaining to Michael League (leader of Snarky Puppy). The disc features the dynamic potency of this artist with his improvisational performance on the Hammond B-3, with a repertoire ranging from old gospel to soul & jazz. A DVD which reflects the life of this artist, who began playing the organ at the tender age of two.

The project goes from his gospel roots to incredibly modern renditions of popular themes by Stevie Wonder. His concerts with The Funk Apostles are an extension of this album & project, in which there also features a blend of other sources of influence: Marvin Gaye, Herbie Hancock, Michael Jackson, James Brown & Jimi Hendrix.
