Jeremy May (born November 26, 1986) Known by his stage name WHYTE HENNY, is an American multi-instrumentalist, singer/rapper and composer. After receiving his first guitar at the tender age of 5, WHYTE HENNY realized his life’s calling. After years of practice and patience WHYTE HENNY was afforded the opportunity of a lifetime. His first live performance came while opening for his dad’s band (“What's Up”/ Imago Records) in front of a sellout crowd at the age of 10. After seeing his son perform, Henny’s dad realized his son’s undeniable talent.
After a couple years of honing his craft, WHYTE HENNY began singing and writing music for a rap core band called “Sick Shit” and “Flood The Skies”. Continuing to flex his guitar muscle, he eventually landed a role as lead guitar player for the band “Element” who eventually developed under the tutelage of the metal band “Drag Pipe (Interscope Records). After inner turmoil, the band later dismembered and he and a longtime friend formed a new band, “H.A.T.E“(Heroes are the Enemy). In 2006 “H.A.T.E” performed in the “Emergenza Festival” (the battle of the bands for the 5 boroughs of New York City) where the band made it to the finale and gained critical acclaim. Throughout 2006 “H.A.T.E” went on to play the main stage at “Webster Hall” and the “Starland Ballroom”. Where In 2011, the band continued touring and hit the coveted “Vans Warped Tour”.
After completing the “Vans Warped Tour”, WHYTE HENNY still felt an unfulfilled void. One day while rehearsing, he had a premonition of fusing two genres of music together. His first challenge was figuring out how to combine his love for hip-hop and his love for metal. After months of collaborating with his multi-platinum production team and fusing Hip-hop’s “Trap Music” and Metals “guitar influences”, Whyte Henny branded a new style of music (TRAPPMETAL).
With a new sound, WHYTE HENNY is now in the process of recording his debut EP album entitled “TRAPPMETAL” and two mix-tapes “A SHOT-OF-HENNY” and “HENNY ON-THE-ROCK”, all slated for January 2015 releases. Lending their production talents to both projects are “The Specialist” the Multi-Platinum Grammy nominated producer for Pink’s (“Can’t Take Home) and up and coming producer ILL Measured.
