Award-winning West End actor, singer, songwriter, and artist, Matt Henry, was awarded an MBE in the Queens New Years Honours list (2017) for his work in Musical Theatre
That same year Matt received a Grammy nomination for his solo performance on The London KinkyBoots cast recording. In 2016, he was Winner of The Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Musical for his performance as Lola in Kinky Boots and voted by London theatre goers as Best Actor in a Musical at the What’s On Stage awards 2016.
Matt has also toured the UK promoting his debut album Red Flare supporting Grammy and Tony winning pop icon, Cyndi Lauper back in 2016. The album was recorded live at the studio of Dan Gillespie Sells (The Feeling) and produced by Mr Hudson.
