Editors’ Notes

With a voice reminiscent of a young Steve Forbert and unflinching, honest lyrics worthy of Mark Kozelek, the London-based singer/songwriter and illustrator Keaton Henson evokes a private world just a few degrees removed from those of Elliott Smith, Jeff Buckley, Bon Iver, Conor Oberst, and others to whom he's often been compared. His own stage fright has made him even more famous among the underground and clued listeners into empathizing ever deeper with his gentle, emotionally true songs. Yet lest you think he's all sensitive singer/songwriter, the humor of "Kronos" will set the record straight. And where his 2010 debut, Dear…, was a beautiful lo-fi expedition, Birthdays lets the sound open up ever so subtly. The deluxe edition includes three bonus tracks—"Milk Teeth," "If I Don't Have To," and "On the News"—that are among the most powerful and most detailed of Henson's career to date. 

Customer Reviews

Great album!

Although reading from reviews this is an squired taste in music. It's like a wine. It's not for everybody, and yes, these songs are sad. They are heartfelt. They're true to him. They're emotional. And they are real.

Emotion.

Keaton Henson is simply amazing. You can sit down and listen to the album, from the first song to the last, and enjoy every minute of it. As you listen, its as if your being taken to another place, even in time. I don't know how anyone could say that his lyrics aren't beautiful. I just don't. As for all the negative comments, there is no need for harsh words. There's a difference between a review (negative or positive), and putting someone down. No one deserves that.

Classic record

Loved! Beautiful music, beautiful voice. Fantastic record.

Henson spent much of his time alone, and this intense privacy almost derailed the release of his music, which he had never intended for public consumption. Such was his avoidance of the limelight that he has been known to respond to his e-mail-only interviews with answers simply drawn in his unique style to convey his answer. Compared...
