Biography

Carson and Tess Henley (no they are not married!) are a sibling duo with a unique, soulful, r&b sound. Both credit their mother's career as a struggling band singer and daily Suzuki piano lessons from the age of three for developing a "musicality" in their songwriting. However, Carson did not start singing until he was coaxed into a high school talent show. Both Carson and Tess have successful solo careers as well as a busy schedule performing as a duo. Their sound draws comparisons to Alicia Keys, Corinne Bailey Rae, Maroon 5, and Gavin DeGraw.

Their music was named TOP 25 by Indie-Music.com and is not receiving airplay in Europe and the States. You may also have heard their music in Starbucks, Armani, GAP, and others. Tower Records (Japan) has also become a supporter of their unique brand of music, pushing a special edition cd with some very large in store displays and recommendations. The highly respected Soul & Jazz & Funk (UK) says "The Henley approach to music is all about craftsmanship, commitment, and an appreciation of what truly constitutes musicality."

"Carson and Tess have performed at Seattle University on two occasions and we would always be thrilled to have them back! It is a treat to be able to bring a musician of this caliber to a university campus. Their soulful performance drew a packed house and was a favorite among the year's musical guests. They are a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend them as a professional and outstandingly talented show!" - Samantha Galvin - Seattle University
