New single, Felix Granger the Finger Pickin’ Boy, featuring Chris Cheney, from forthcoming album South Of Everywhere. LISTEN | DOWNLOAD FELIX GRANGER THE FINGER PICKIN’ BOY
Following the release of his much-loved recent single (Don’t Be) Down and Out, which received high rotation across Double J, ABC Country and plenty of airplay on community radio around the country, comes Felix Granger the Finger Pickin' Boy, the second single taken from Henry Wagons’ upcoming album South of Everywhere (set for release February 3, 2023).
This new twangin' tale is inspired by the lost tales of the outlaw country greats, telling the story of Felix Granger, a child prodigy guitar player, who was discovered half a century ago, tearing the roof off with his nimble fingers, playing in the corner of his mum's restaurant in Dover, Tasmania. Henry has never met the actual Felix because he is the culmination of hundreds of players he has met on the open road. The song is a dedication to a boy devoted to the pursuit of playing the guitar just like his heroes... a story of passion and compulsion for music, over all else, with fame and glory as the unintended consequence. Felix's tale is anchored by a love of family and, perhaps even more so, a love of a good slice of homemade pie.
When Henry asked Chris Cheney of the iconic Australian rock band The Living End, who also happens to be one of Australia’s best chicken pickin' guitarists, to play the lead breaks for the song he didn't hesitate and said, "I am Felix...this song is my story."
