NEW ALBUM RECORDED WITH NATIONAL ORCHESTRA OF BELGIUM IS FIRST AURO-3D® RELEASE FEATURING A FULL SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA
August 21, 2015 (New York, NY) – Belgian Pop/Rock musician Piet Goddaer, better known as Ozark Henry, is poised to release his highly-anticipated album, Paramount, in the U.S. on September 18th (pre-orders beginning August 21st).
Since the 1990’s, Ozark Henry has been a strong cultural icon and creative force in Belgium across many mediums including music, cinema, design, fashion and goodwill. As a musician, Henry has released seven platinum albums, three film soundtracks and won 6 Music Industry Awards (the Belgian equivalent of the GRAMMYS). MTV Europe nominated him for ‘Belgian Artist of the Year’ and in 2013, he was the second most downloaded artist in Belgium. In 2014, Henry succeeded Lou Reed as brand ambassador for fashion designer Ann Demeulemeester. Just recently, the United Nations appointed Henry as the Goodwill Ambassador against human trafficking. Henry will play at a UN event in October and is fully dedicated to raise awareness for the cause, connecting with local teams in their fight against this modern form of slavery. TEDx asked Henry to speak about his views on the future of music last May. This fall, Henry will be part of Krug Champagne‘s music pairing initiative.
