Celebrated roots rockers The Jorgensens, led by harmonizing duo Kurt and Brianna Jorgensen, release their new video “Old Black Crow” from their forthcoming album Americana Soul out on November 4, 2022 via Paramour Records.
The Jorgensens specialize in an honest, authentic style of roots rock/Americana-steeped sound. They blend their signature steel-sharp musicianship, honey-soaked harmonizations, and relatable lyrics with influences from the blues, bluegrass, traditional earthy spirituals, and jazz into a unique, distinctly America-bred musical style,
“Old Black Crow” starts Delta raw, electrifies itself, and then takes a slick, contemporary turn. It’s a fine piece of modern roots music that builds on multiple influences without apology or turning self-conscious. The Jorgensens deftly combine sublime musicianship, deep genre knowledge, and memorable vocals into a sound that could come from no other band. Top it all with some tasty slide guitar and what’s not to like? This collective is ready to shake things up and this is the song they’ll do it with.
Kurt’s mix of vintage guitar, bouncy basslines, and modern technology blends with Brianna’s classically-trained multi-instrumental talent, as she deftly commands keyboards, guitar, and mandolin, among others. Add the remaining members unique, diverse talents, and the result is a mix of vintage flavors, hip style, and a love of fun (which beams out of their music videos).
Watch “Old Black Crow”
The roots of The Jorgensens were set in 2014 in St. Paul, MN, when singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Brianna Tagg was introduced to fellow vocalist/songwriter/guitarist/producer Kurt Jorgensen. Embarking on a musical journey with their first album Jorgensen/Tagg, they continued to write music as their bond grew stronger. As both were getting sober, Kurt was also suffering the weight of a recent divorce – seeing each other through these difficult times forged an incredible connection.
Something amazing happens when soulmates create music; when kismet seeks to bring two creative forces together in a way that allows them to express kindred emotions and sentiments through song. Originally starting as collaborators, Kurt and Brianna would go on to marry, give birth to a son, and infuse their kinetic energy into The Jorgensens. The band blossomed with the additions of Andra Lee Suchy (vocals), Brenda Lee King (Bass Guitar), Jeff King (Saxophone, Clarinets), Jeff Levine (Trumpet), Mark O’ Day (Drums, Percussion), and C Harris (Percussion).
