The bespectacled alt-country singer-songwriter who changed his surname to the band he has played with for the past 15 years has made seven albums, the most recent of which was co-produced by former Bad Seed Mick Harvey. But it has been touring the US that has ignited Henry Wagon’s passion for food, shown recently when he hosted Channel Ten’s barbecue-focused Keepers of the Flame.
The 37-year-old Melburnian lives with his wife, Melvis Crawford, their 10-month-old daughter, Casper, and two dogs, Gordon and Peeps, in inner-city Carlton, but whenever possible they decamp to Goldview, his coastal studio and holiday house in Mount Martha to make music and braise meats.
