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.

BRUSSELS, March 6 2015: OZARK HENRY has just released his new album ‘PARAMOUNT’ which he recorded with the National Orchestra of Belgium. This collaboration presents a unique and world-class hybrid of pop and classical music. It also marks the first time in their existence that the National Orchestra pays tribute to the repertoire of a non-classical artist.
The renowned symphony orchestra asked Ozark Henry to compile an album that reflects his past, present and future. The result is a monumental career overview augmented with 4 brand new songs, all performed with striking arrangements for the orchestra.
‘Paramount’ is also the first Belgian album to be mastered in the best possible audio standard: Auro 9.1. The music was recorded, mixed and mastered in three dimensions. This is a world first for a Belgian album release, and the result is a audio experience of the highest order.
It is the ultimate musical experience in 3D. (more…)
