Todd Henkin

South East


Todd Henkin’s life in music has been dedicated to recording and performing original music and using creativity to connect and strengthen communities. With his Philadelphia based band, The Great Unknown, he shared bills with notable acts like Dr Dog, Tuneyards, Dawes, and the Carolina Chocolate Drops. As a teaching artist, he’s written songs in classes and homes, with immigrants and refugees, international community leaders in Vanderbilt University, and students, recording an album on tour of co-written songs (Other Voices Other Rooms) sponsored by ASCAP.

Todd recently completed a master’s degree in creative health at University College London and is currently piloting participatory songwriting workshops with caregivers in long-term stays in hospitals, parents of children with special needs, and adults living in community housing with severe mental illness. Striving to keep a balance between his own music and music for health collaborations, Todd is releasing a new album of original music sometime in early 2024, recorded in Nashville, TN, and featuring some of Nashville’s top up-and-coming musicians.
