A veteran musician and producer, Joe Henry has worked with the likes of Mavis Staples, Aimee Mann and Loudon Wainwright III. His album with the late Solomon Burke won a Grammy in 2002.
Henry just released his first solo record since 2011's Reverie; Invisible Hour features Henry's son Levon on saxophone. The family ties are present in other ways on the new album, which looks deeply at marriage and other commitments.
