“Am I In The Photo?” by Henry Hall

Singer/songwriter Henry Hall recently announced his forthcoming EP Are You Kidding Me????? will drop on September 30th. Along with the announcement, he shares his single and video for “Am I In The Photo?”.

Henry on “Am I In The Photo?” – One day I was just messing around in my favorite weird tuning on my guitar and I came up with this double time groove and chord progression that was nice and driving and thuddy. I really liked it. Simple, two chords, back and forth. I usually start writing a song with the chords and beat first like that. I know that I really like what I come up with if I start singing loudly along with it. That usually means that I sing high or in falsetto because it’s more fun to sing loudly in a higher register for me. That’s what happened with this tune and how the hook of “Am I in the Photo?” was born.

There’s nothing worse than not being included in a group photo and there’s REALLY nothing worse than being unsure if the person you love loves you back, so I wanted to write a song about those two things put together. This is a paranoid song and I hope it gets stuck in your head like it did in mine, just like when you’re experiencing real paranoia. It’s all in your head and you are in the photo! Maybe?

Wouldn’t it be great if an artist’s music could hold your hand through an anxiety

attack and then help you laugh it all off once it’s over? Well, that’s what Los Angeles- based artist Henry Hall’s music does. It is one-of-a-kind alternative pop. Featuring his captivating falsetto paired with his witty, idiosyncratic lyrics, Hall’s music is self-deprecating and soulful, as if The Smiths met Prince. Underneath Hall’s tongue-in-cheek language and moving melodies are alluring guitar and synthesizer textures, which compliment his infectious vocal harmonies in a way that evokes Grizzly Bear and Jeff Tweedy.

Hall moved to New York City to play live shows and craft My Friends Don’t Like Me, his 2016 EP release. The project garnered attention online and eventually landed a placement on the Judd Apatow-produced Netflix series, Love. Hall’s 2020 debut full-length album, Neato, is movingly melancholic and anxious like our current reality, yet still hilariously ironic and impressive musically in Hall’s signature style. In January 2020, Hall caught a huge break — he made his television debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Performing “Alive, Annoyed,” the 10th track off of Neato.
