“It’s absolutely brilliant…..he’s found his voice!” Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

With three packed out Green Note gigs under his belt, Henry’s very much looking forward to returning to his favourite London intimate venue for a rare gig in the capital.
In 2009, Henry (who wrote all those hits for The Christians in the 80’s, and Yachts’ songs in the 70’s) reinvented himself as a singer-songwriter, and released his debut solo CD “The Chronicles of Modern Life” to critical acclaim, and singles from the album (including “Grey’s The New Blonde”) made it onto the Radio 2 playlist.
Proper Records released “The Last Mad Surge of Youth”, in 2014 and it garnered Henry the best reviews he’s had in 36 years of releasing records (see below)
His next album (a joint affair with his guitarist Les Glover) will be entitled “Six of One and Half a Dozen of the Other”, and the pair of them will be featuring songs from the new album in the set, as well as songs from his solo albums, and even a couple of Henry’s old hits, from way back when.

Here’s what they said about Last Mad Surge of Youth album:

UnCut: 8/10 “…compares favourably to Ray Davies. These are heart-warming self-assured songs from a man confidently declaring that he’s not done yet”

R2: **** “Clever crafted songwriting…full of proper tunes & grown-up words…a clever, wily, literate writer”

Q: ***“It’s all bound by Priestman’s songwriterly craft: some things age cannot whither”

New Zealand, Sunday Star Times ****1/2 (CD of the Week) : “unique clarity, and honesty…”

Classic Pop: **** “A lovingly crafted album…his fourth act might be his best”

New Zealand, The Dominion Post ****: “Priestman occupies the territory somewhere between Ray Davies’ sardonic take on life and Nick Lowe’s sly humour”…
