Art expressed through the right medium and with the right tone can leave an impact on you. Especially if the art piece you created is relatable by a common man walking down the street, it can potentially go viral on a massive scale. More or less, Henny West makes a similar sort of masterpieces. You may have heard about him if you are in the Hip hop scene, even for the slightest bit. He has achieved success in such a short period as compared to the other artists and musicians. It would not be fair not to mention that his new album, 1440, is highly appreciated by listeners of all backgrounds having different tastes.
Analyzing Henny’s music in a bit detailed manner, the first and foremost thing you will notice is Minimalism. The tracks and singles are not, at all, overloaded with fillers and irritating sounds to make the song prolonged, as done by some peer artists. The bass, the instruments, and the voice together sound like they all belong to each other. Impacting the world is described, so far, as the ultimate goal of Henny’s music by himself.
This music-making journey of Henny started back in his early teens. With no father and mother, his grandparents raised him, and although they were quite affectionate towards him, Henny still had to go through a lot of tough times because of an unforgiving neighborhood. The whole situation became so tense that he got injured one time in a gun shooting and barely survived being dead. Coming back from that gloomy valley of death instilled in him a new spirit with which he rose from the ashes. Since then, music has been like an escape to young Henny. He has found his solace in making new and harmonious melodies and then sharing them with the people to inspire them.
Perhaps the most needed time for music masterpieces and art-stuff is now. COVID has stricken the world with all its wrath and associated calamities, and in this hour of strife, struggle, and grief, we all sure can use some good music. Henny, judging the moment accurately, has stayed online and shown his presence in many online concerts, hip-hop events, private music sessions, jams, and whatnot. He has even started working on his new project; his new album, TrapRock. It will have singles based on melodious fusions of Rock and Hip hop. To spice it up a bit, he has even given it a bit of trap-style touch. He is doing all this through his own music production house, Dedicated to Your Entertainment.
Henny debuted his career with his album called A Story to Tell. In that album, he told the world his story, his life journey, the hardships he went through, the tough times, and how he found peace in making music. You can sense the memories of his early childhood in Carson, California, from the singles of that album. Quite a couple of songs went hit from that album owing to their originality. His second album, Show Me the Light, is primarily focused on how he found music as an ultimate escape from that harsh reality. It shows his taste in Hip hop when he was a teenager or in his early twenties. The third album, Bout Time, is a fascinating compilation of his songs about different life phenomena and experiences that he went through overtime. And finally, the fourth one, 1440, is inspired by how every one of us has got the same amount of time each day, that is 1440 minutes. Yet we all tend to spend it so differently from each other.
About his plans, Henny says he is not going to stop or change paths any soon. Like said before, he has found his solace in music and being his most efficient and accurate means of expression, Henny is quite contented with what he is currently doing. It gives him immense contentment when his music is being listened to on such a massive scale and making a difference in the lives of thousands if not millions of people. Secondly, he says that it is also helping him improve his quality of life. Hence, he has decided to stay focused on this track for the foreseeable future and keep making new records in it. He even has plans for some BIG collaborations with renowned names of the industry with Hip hop as their specialty. Henny has also been making some real buzz on his social media accounts, especially his Instagram iamhennywest. You can even have a glimpse of his videos and music from his YouTube channel Henny West.
