D Henry Fenton - Smokestack Lightning

D Henry Fenton - Smokestack Lightning
D. Henry Fenton is an Australian singer and songwriter who’s father was at one time a band promoter, arranging shows for Bo Didley and countless other acts. He urged Henry to avoid the unreliable industry altogether. Politely ignoring this fatherly advice, Fenton surged on, finally getting his break opening for the prominent Irish band, The Corrs.

His first solo album, "Autumn Sweet", was produced by early REM producer, Mitch Easter. The Sydney Morning Herald called it “a strange and magical album” and was given “pop rock winner” status in Rolling Stone.

2017 saw the release of Fenton’s third collection of original material. Titled, Twice I Fell Down Once, the album’s peculiar name comes from words spoken by Woody Guthrie’s daughter before she died at eight years in a house fire. Mixed by Grammy Award winning engineer, Helik Hadar (James Reyne/Tracy Chapman/Joni Mitchell), Twice I Fell Down Once, is a collection of songs about ghosts, love, obsession and revenge.

D Henry Fenton’s detours into different genres and styles have created staying power that outlives the latest cultural fads and fashions. Fenton has crossover appeal that engages the heart and the intellect.

About this track...

Fenton developed a keen interest in blues after the blues section at his local library caught his eyes and ears.

"Howlin' Wolf had a tough electric sound & a voice so unique that I started playing a few at my gigs", says Fenton.

"A friend suggested I record some as an experiment & Smokestack Lightning is one of my favourites".
