Jeff Jensen, Memphis, TN - Eccentric American Blues Music
Most people are in for a shock the first time they experience a Jeff Jensen Band performance. It starts with the trio mixing an eccentric blend of soul, rock, and American roots music with a deep blues influence. Suddenly Jensen feels the spirit, transforming into a whirling dervish of sight & sound as he bounds across the stage, barely able to contain himself as he wrenches stark, biting six-string explosions from his guitar. His passion is there for all to see, a rare occurrence in these times of buttoned-down music-making. At first, the sheer emotional force he creates can be a bit overwhelming. Then you realize that all art is an expression of the soul, of the power of the life-giving force that created the universe. And Jeff feels it is his responsibility to make the effort to communicate his passion with each member of the audience every night. After all, music is art, and art is the physical form of emotion.
In 2015, Jensen released the vibrant Morose Elephant album that captures the flavor of the band’s creative force. 2016 the band released their first live album titled The River City Sessions, hitting all the blues charts and propelling the band to yet another level of success. Then in 2018 “Wisdom & Decay” was released, probably the most significant album Jeff Jensen has created to date.
The last few years has brought unbelievable opportunity to the band; touring an impressive 12+ countries a year and a very large portion of the USA. As Jeff’s reputation as a songwriter, producer, guitar player and entertainer continues to grow so does the bands emotional impact on their audiences. After you see this band live you’ll truly understand why they are considered one of the most original sounding bands around today.
