The Jorgensens

The Who?

No, not those guys. That’s a whole other band. The Jorgensens.

I still see that look on your face. You don’t trust me do ya?

Ok here’s the back story as it was told to me.

Kurt Jorgensen has been long time band leader of the Kurt Jorgensen Band, releasing eight albums to date and receiving the praise of fans and critics alike. The Minnesota Music Awards has presented Kurt with Singer of the Year, Entertainer of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year.

Brianna has toured nationwide with other artists as a bandleader and solo. Brianna has performed multiple times at South by Southwest, impressing industry luminaries and fans.

The two troubadours teamed up to record Brianna’s debut solo album “Wandering” with Kurt acting as producer and arranger for Brianna’s multi-instrumentalist talents. It did not take long for the pair to team up as songwriters and performers to form The Jorgensens: a team in life on and off stage. The sound is powerful and undeniably fresh, taking root in rock, blues and some southern kissed Americana soul.

After releasing their debut album “Love Wins” Kurt and Brianna successfully toured the country. The Jorgensens are preparing to release their 2nd album “The Lexington Stretch” in September 2019.

Here’s the album cover to prove it. The_Jorgensens_-_Album_Cover.jpeg

First of all sexy as anything album cover. Secondly, the coolest track names this side of Mars. It just takes one look at “if the sea was whiskey” “voo doo” and “Babylon” sharing one cover and you know you’re in for a ride. It even comes with “chocolate and coffee”. Room Service just got delivered. Now, that’s the future of music and the experience economy all tied together in a fashion statement. And a lexicon to match. If you get what I did there.

But alas, I’m not here to dazzle you with me. I’m more interested in listening to the good stuff. Like you. Let’s start with what “Real Women” has to say.

Oh.Yes.Please.

You’re kidding me.

And why am I even surprised?

Timeless. Iconic. And Sultry as anything. With a snarl in its fangs and a crown on its head it rasps and sways with sophisticated rock, grit, and unstoppable cords. Like please don’t stop.

With 1 track I have my album for 2019. I might even be ambitious and roll it out to 2020.

I think I need some whiskey now (and to be honest, I never got that stuff).

The way it swirls over the palette of my skin and splashes my feet up to a deep groove. With nose wrinkles knowing I have something too good to be devoured without an unmatched intensity.

2020 definitely.

Why, because of this is the epitome of why music can’t afford to die. You’ll never feel a voodoo-like this.  And at this point, I’ll own I haven’t even got to the magic parts.

I don’t know if my system can handle this kinda genius.

So I turn up the volume and play the next beat.

Becoming drunk on everything that follows, like some kind of madness.

Before I become drooly on great music, I’m ready to get social.

All this mixing of vocals, instruments, thick jazz, rockabilly blues, and chic punk renegades leaves me …

I can’t given 7 gold stars this enough.
