Musical Supervisor and Orchestrations
Henry Hey and David Bowie met when Henry was invited to play piano and keyboard on David's album, 'The Next Day'. An easy musical relationship eventually led David to ask Henry to be the orchestrator, arranger and musical director for Lazarus. In years prior, Henry was George Michael’s musical director, working closely with George and legendary producer Phil Ramone in the creation of the critically acclaimed album ‘Symphonica’, and then going on to lead the 40 piece orchestra and band in arena touring throughout Europe. Before working with George Michael, Henry was the musical director for Rod Stewart’s ‘Great American Songbook’. He led and arranged for Rod’s world tour and many television appearances. No stranger to score for picture, Henry’s work can be heard in several television and film scores including the score for cult hit “Dumb and Dumber 2,” co-written with Australian pop sensation 'Empire of the Sun.' Henry has been an in-demand and key part of several touring groups and major-label artist recordings. Recently he's toured with Broadway and television star Vanessa Williams and Columbia artist Chris Botti and has worked with famed record producers Tony Visconti, Phil Ramone, Kevin Killen, Frank Filipetti, Richard Perry and Steve Tyrell. Despite a very busy schedule, Henry still finds musical variety in performing with well-known jazz groups and indie artists in festivals throughout the world.
