"Intoxicating, hazy music that lifts you off the ground and transports you to another era."
"Melodic, danceable, and devastating”

HNRY FLWR is the secular-spiritual rock alter-ego created by David Van Witt who derives great inspiration from his unique upbringing. Born in Belgium and raised in a meditation community in Iowa, Van Witt then moved around the USA with his single, psychic mother who claims she remembers being born. Now the proselytizing leader of a seven-piece band in New York City, HNRY FLWR uses meditation, drone music, and his pseudo religion, that worships The Infinite Void, to help build a following to match their energized indie rock gospel concerts.
In 2021 HNRY FLWR teamed up with producer Sam Cohen (Kevin Morby, Dangermouse, Sharon Van Etten) to record their full-length debut album. Cohen also mixed the album and it is due out next year on La Fam Recordings.
Since receiving a “Buzzy” review from The New York Times and selling out The Sultan Room (Brooklyn, 250 cap) in early 2020 and again in 2021, they have gained a reputation for church-like live performances that are as powerfully immersive as they are moving. Their “brilliant” (GoldFlakePaint) debut EP, FLOWERAMA, was released in the summer of 2017 on Paper Garden Records and quickly went viral on Spotify, now boasting 1,000,000 streams. The “melodic, danceable, and devastating” (Alt Citizen) EP was produced by David Groener Jr, (The National, Jonsi).
