"Extra summer sizzle coming from Henry"

Wednesday, July 23, 2003

Looking to make your summer more sizzling? Then don't hesitate to get up and dance to Mississauga's Craig Doyle Henry live in concert.

The urban artist will be performing this weekend at the annual Jamaica Independence Day Celebration in Toronto.

It's great to see hip-hop alive and well in the community, since more often it may seem like rock and punk styles steal the local music scene. Henry prefers to include a bit of every music type to grab the attention of audiences.

"My music is a fusion of hip hop, reggae, R & B, and gospel," said Henry, who attended Streetsville Secondary School and St. Francis Xavier. "Every now and then I put a little rock edge or funk, but there's always a pop feel."

Thus the 25-year-old performer follows his own advice to others who are trying to succeed in music: "Always advance your craft and never limit yourself."

Influenced by Bob Marley, P. Diddy, and Michael Jackson, Henry's sound is energetic enough to motivate a crowd to dance and sing along to the music.

The local artist's single, Gimme That Chance, is an upbeat reggae tune with R&B vocals by independent singer, Shirlette. Henry's single is the sort of song that rolls along in your head non-stop, which makes him even more successful at exposing his music since people can easily remember his beats.

Let's dive into Henry's musical resumé: the performer has been dabbling with music ever since he was 13, where he began to write his own songs. Henry finally performed his music to the public when he was 17.

From past performances, Henry has received positive feedback from his fans; he reminisces his first show where "as soon as I did my first two lines, the crowd went crazy!"

The urban artist can be seen performing in Springfield, Mass. a few times a year with his other music project, urban gospel group House of David. This following September, Henry will release his own full-length album.

What can we look forward to at Henry's upcoming concert?

"Expect to have a whole lot of fun. (People can) get their groove on," said Henry. Henry will perform his own original tunes as well as his new single, Get On Up, a reggae-dance song that includes a hint of funk soul. The annual Jamaica Independence Day Celebration will take place at Keelesdale Park at 2801 Eglinton Ave. W. in Toronto. All ages are welcome. Henry will hit the stage between 12-4:30 p.m. Tickets cost $15 in advance or $20 at the gate.

To purchase tickets, or inquire about the event, call 416-473-3439 or 416-703-8063, or 416-652-1062. Check out Craig Doyle Henry's webpage at to download Gimme That Chance.

Feeling a bit camera shy


How do you “label” an artist who refuses to submit to a cookie cutter music industry? Just Imagine what music would be like today if there had never been a Michael Jackson….if there was never a Bob Marley…. or a Jimi Hendrix. True artists like these come along only once and are undeniably irreplaceable.

CDH, Craig Doyle Henry is one of those artists who come along only once, spawning many imitators but none able to duplicate his earnest pursuit of truth and the versatility with which he communicates his experiences along the way. He is different from everyone and everything going on in the music industry today. Utilizing the sounds of blazing hot Hip-Hop and hard hitting Rock to heart pulsing Reggae and smooth R&B, CDH translates the common experiences of life and love into heart felt poems of passion that move the body and soul yet still captivate the mind.

CDH is a natural vocalist, a prolific songwriter and an outstanding producer. With musical influences ranging all the way from P.Diddy, to Kirk Franklin and from Buju Banton, to The Temptations, CDH has developed a refreshing and distinct new sound in urban music that has mass commercial appeal. His first solo release “Gimme That Chance” a Limited Edition E.P has already been attracting tremendous attention from music lovers, radio and industry professionals alike. Although it is just a prelude to his full length album – scheduled for release later this year – Gimme That Chance does showcase an array of CDH’s many extraordinary talents. The most noted being his ability to write, produce and record great songs! .

At the age of 17 CDH formed and fronted the gospel reggae band Manna which performed extensively in the Toronto gospel circuit and also recorded two independent singles.

In 1997 CDH teamed up with his eldest brother Simple Shel and created House of David Productions where he quickly earned a name for himself as a solid record producer. After successfully releasing House of David “The E.P” in 2000 and sharing the stage with top artists such as Grammy Nominees Winans Phase2, Stellar Award winners Trinitee 5:7 and Reggae Superstar Papa San, CDH finally decided it was time to venture off into a solo career with his Signature Hit “Get On Up!” the title track from House of David’s second CD release which he also produced. With an increasing demand for product at his solo performances CDH delivered “Roots Foundation” an instrumental reggae CD and promptly produced his E.P to compliment it, including the edgy yet catchy “American Dream”.

CDH is a potent mix of the spiritual and the earthy. He speaks of Faith and suffering, joy and personal struggles. With words that compel the most discriminating of listeners, he tells the stories of the “common man” in ways that reflect their culture and intrigue the outsider. He is gifted in his perception and expression through music, poetry and song, with a greater capacity for inner searching. He is sensitive, Intuitive, creative and spiritual. He simply is Craig Doyle Henry, CDH.
