Henry Sparks lives in Canterbury in England plays guitar and writes songs.

His music is informed by experience as a farm hand, factory rat, pizza slinger and carpenter. He is an architect and teaches at the University of Kent.

Folk, English and American, and a fascination with song-writing have driven his playing and creativity.
Henry was a founder of DIY punk innovators Longport Buzz and roots pioneers Bootfare (appearing at Glastonbury and Kerrville festivals).
Henry released his debut solo CD Seven songs in 2012 and the CD Latest Waxing in 2016 to favorable reviews (see reviews section).

In May 2017 Henry recorded his first full length solo CD in Melbourne Australia and he is now working up the material for release in January 2018.
