Henry the Archer is originally the stage name for singer -songwriter Richard Hennessy. The name comes from the title of a fictionally based autobiography Richard was working on putting together in 2010.
Richard, initially based out of New Jersey; released the first Henry the Archer album in 2011 titled, “Space Suits for the Modern Astronaut”. But this album being acoustic, and recorded under very interesting circumstances did not satisfy Richards need for dynamic vocals, bass, and drums. So, Richard soon incorporated fellow NJ musicians under the Henry the Archer moniker and released it’s second album, “The Castles on Fire” in 2012.
In 2013, Richard relocated to Fort Worth Texas and soon added drummer Kevin Geist and eventually, bassist Charles Marchbanks. In the latter half of 2014, Henry the Archer recorded it's 3rd full length album, “When Something Means Nothing” (nominated for three awards in the 17th annual Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards) with the band's follow up, "Zero is a Number" to be released on Hand Drawn Records, Summer 2017 on both digitally and on special edition vinyl.
