Performing primarily cover music, Henry said he puts a great deal of effort into interpreting songs consistent with the original recordings of other artists.
"It is an approach that has served me well over the years, as my vocal range is fairly wide and malleable," he said.
Though Henry's focus is on cover music, he has been writing his own music for as long as he's been playing, with the idea of recording his own album sometime in the near future.
"Right now, I'm focused on raising my musical profile locally, and the crowd at Irises is a great place to start," said Henry.
(Editor's Note: Gary Henry performs regularly at Irises, with his next show slated for 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 2.)
