LA based rapper, Henry Canyons, transcends your typical boundaries of hip-hop identity. The self-described Brooklinite-French-Jew took to music at a young age; from his training as a jazz saxophonist to his teenage years spent in Brooklyn ciphers, his melodic style and bilingual lyrical integrity reflect a diverse musical background. Canyons left for the West Coast in 2005 to attend Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon. After graduating, Canyons moved to LA intent on following his passion for the artform. Since then Henry has worked on multiple projects, most recently his first solo mixtape, Vignettes. Upon its release in October of 2012, Vignettes–which features production from BoomBaptist–received cosigns from WordisBond, HypeFloats, Hip-hop.com and many other online publications. Since then, Canyons has been working on collaborative projects with French producers, Keor Meteor and Freddy Jay, as well as NYC producer Willie Green. Over the course of his career, Canyons has racked up over 30,000 views on YouTube, and has shared stages with Macklemore, Tash, Open Mike Eagle, Pigeon Jon, Blue Scholars, Billy Woods, and tons of local LA talent.
