One Man Funk Band Henry + The Invisibles Releases New Single “Let’s Bounce”

If you haven’t heard about the “one man funk band,” Henry + The Invisibles, prepare to have a new favorite artist. Austin is home to many talented musicians, but watching Henry perform is mesmerizing and just downright fun. He not only sings, but is responsible for playing the parts of a 5 person band. Yes, you heard that right. Who needs a band? Henry used to have a backing band to play the myriad of instrumentals that fill up his songs. But, as the story goes, he grew bored of managing the members of his band; getting them in line and on beat was a task unto itself. So, he decided, “why try teaching a backing band what’s in my head if I can simply figure out a way to play everything at once with no backing band whatsoever?”

Henry + Invisibles  just released a new sin Let’s Bounce that is a stimulating, disco funk infused song best listened to when gliding around the roller rink beneath the shimmer of a disco ball. “Funk disco roller skating grooves are my favorite style of music,” says Henry Roland.  Let’s Bounce is my homage to the music that makes me most happy in life.” Henry spent the majority of his youth roller skating and skateboarding on the streets of New York and rediscovered his love for skating when he moved to Austin. Let’s Bounce is an energetic track with a nostalgic edge that’s guaranteed to make you groove. Henry was the sole multi-instrumentalist, engineer and producer for Let’s Bounce , which remains true for all of his music.

Austin has some incredible, one-of-a-kind acts. But even amongst the most well regarded acts in the city, Henry + The Invisibles stands in a league of his own. His live show commands enormous praise and respect from everyone on the receiving end of his high-energy freight train of funk. Thus: Henry + The Invisibles was born. If you happen to be in Austin in a few weeks for SXSW 2018, it is imperative that you witness Henry as he plays the role of 5 people at once on-stage.
