HOLLYWOOD, CA / ACCESSWIRE / November 24, 2020 / Despite 2020 being one of the toughest years in history, musician ØHENRY has had a breakout season. The artist achieved many feats, including playing a part in a Billboard #1 album called Rare, singing background vocals on the song "Ring." He also participated in Bankrol Hayden's debut album "Pain is Temporary" as writer on the song "Ballin." The singer and songwriter gained these achievements and more on top of building his music brand in one of the harshest times.
The musician can only call himself blessed, gaining ground as one of the music world's best in R&B and hip hop as he collaborated with various international artists, went platinum, and developed some of his best material by far. Adapting and shifting during these tough times, Henry Oyekanmi, aka ØHENRY, chose to thrive and not just survive. Today, he reaps the benefits of all his hard work.
Getting to where he is today was far from easy. The Nigerian-American artist and producer from Oakland, California, had to put in the work. Growing up was far from a walk in the park for Henry for most of his life, but he always had music as a form of escape. He would jam with his friends every day after school, playing drums, percussion, and piano from an early age.
For a time, ØHENRY joined a band named "Poplyfe" and toured around the Bay Area, playing in festivals and concert venues with the band. Before the band would win fourth place in "America's Got Talent," Henry left the group to attend a scholarship summer program at the Berklee College of Music, which would later lead to a full-tuition scholarship and a degree in Music Business Management.
In 2015, Henry landed an internship with music bigs in Los Angeles. He connected with many other musicians, executives, and producers, building a solid network and setting himself up for the long haul. After returning to school and completing his degree, he would fly back to LA to start chasing after his dream of building a career around music. ØHENRY landed a brief assistant gig at APG, working directly under Jeff Vaughn. This job required Henry to search for upcoming talent, in which he then decided he was more than good enough to make his own music, and the rest is history.
ØHENRY has written and released a slew of high-quality tracks that have circulated streaming platforms and radio stations all over the country. In 2017, he started publishing singles like "Brand New," "Put It Down," "All Night," and "One More Night." The same year he released his first album, "Red Roses," which put him on the map. Since then, he's released track after track, building up his brand in the R&B and hip-hop world.
The versatile artist's sound is smooth and groovy, instantly turning into earworms. The level of songwriting and performance quality would pick the interest of his now mentor Nolan Lambroza, AKA "Sir Nolan," who would be instrumental to the artist's entry into the halls of music bigs.
Since his humble and early days, ØHENRY has gone far, breaking into Spotify hit playlists and gathering thousands of streams on the music platform a month. He's also worked with other iconic artists. Henry Oyekanmi hopes to continue making music and travel the world, doing what he loves best. And after his breakthrough year, he'll likely be rising to new heights very soon.
