Steve Seskin will have you wiping away a tear one minute and laughing out loud the next. His songs all have messages that touch the hearts of everyone: from the feelings of a little boy missing his father, to growing and being true to yourself, to one of his most well-known themes of being considerate to and respectful of one another as expressed in “Don’t Laugh at Me”. Steve has written seven number one songs, including the
Grammy-nominated “Grown Men Don’t Cry”, recorded by Tim McGraw, “No Doubt About It” and “For a Change”, recorded by Neal McCoy, “No Man’s Land” and “If You’ve Got Love”, recorded by John Michael Montgomery, “Daddy’s Money”, recorded by Ricochet, and the above mentioned “Don’t Laugh at Me”, which
was recorded by both Mark Willis and Peter, Paul, and Mary. This song became the impetus for the Operation Respect/Don’t Laugh at Me Project, a curriculum designed to teach tolerance in schools. The program has been implemented in more than 20,000 schools across the country.

Don Henry, says Entertainment Weekly, “comes across as a first cousin to Randy Newman, writing hot-wired songs about born-again whores, interfaith marriages, and the homeless taking over the White House. This is funny and thought provoking stuff, all of it good.” The L.A. Reader calls Don “a piercingly insightful songwriter who uses irony like a scalpel.” Don’s songs have been recorded by legends like Ray Charles, Patti Page, and Conway Twitty, as well as by Blake Shelton, Lonestar, and Jimmy Wayne. He won a Grammy for Kathy Mattea’s version of “Where’ve You Been” as well as Song of the Year honors from the Academy of Country Music, the Country Music Association, and the Nashville Songwriters Association International. He’s shared the stage with a vast array of artists from Keith Urban to Joey Ramone. His songs tend to be both funny and thought-provoking, and he sings them with great tenderness and humor.
