It’s with great sadness that we have to tell you that the pianist, vocalist, Wah Wah 45s recording artist and our friend Henri-Pierre Nöel passed away unexpectedly on Sunday June 10th.
Henri was a very special man, and incredible spirit, with a wonderful, gentle sense of humour. He touched everyone he met not only with his amazing energy, but his unique musical talent.
We are very proud and honoured to have released his music on our label, and to have managed to get him over to the UK to play The Jazz Cafe in London a few years ago, as well as spending precious time with him in his hometown of Montreal in Canada.
HPN, as we knew him, will be hugely missed by us all. His music is his legacy but we will always remember the warm, beautiful man that we were lucky enough to get to know for a little while. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends across the water at this time. Merci Henri xx
