Henry + The Invisibles ‘Beatz The Heat’ beat tape release show on Tuesday, June 26 at One-2-One Bar
June 26 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm - Free
Austin’s very own “One Man Funk Band” Henry + The Invisibles (Henry Roland) is thrilled to announce the release of his entirely instrumental beat tape, “Beatz The Heat,” on Thursday, June 21. Inspired by Beat Scene producers like J Dilla and Madlib, ”Beatz The Heat” contains 14 brand new funk and soul-filled tracks that pair perfectly with the summer vibes; whether at the beach, the pool, or on a bike ride down the boardwalk, this tape will be the idyllic summer sound to groove to. Henry single-handedly produced, edited and performed live instruments on the tape. There will be an official CD release party on Tuesday, June 26 at One-2-One Bar, located at 1509 S. Lamar Blvd., Austin, Texas 78704. Tickets are free, but capacity is limited. For more information on the show see here: https://holdmyticket.com/event/316014. There will be an official “Beatz The Heat” vinyl release this July 2018, with more information to be announced. Earlier in 2018, Henry released his roller skating anthem “Let’s Bounce” which was featured as KUTX Song of the Day on March 30.

“After producing a few albums and quite a few singles since my debut EP ‘Onemanphunkband’ in 2010, I wanted to challenge myself with a different style of record… one which I have always wanted to create,”said Henry + The Invisibles (aka Henry Roland). “‘Beatz The Heat’ is my first fully instrumental self produced beat tape.”
“Multi-instrumentalist Henry Roland is quickly changing what it means to be a one man band,” said Jack Anderson, KUTX 91.7FM Host. “Based out of Austin, Henry + The Invisibles incorporates the sheer songwriting finesse of Elton John with the technical virtuosity of Jimi Hendrix in his loop-based arrangements. Roland’s abilities on guitar, bass, keys, and vocals coalesce for high-energy performances filled with seamless transitions between instruments and songs – all while the man himself has the time of his life onstage.”
