Thor Jensen is a New York based guitarist with a unique sound that seamlessly integrates his masterful technique with the styles that influence him, allowing him to blend styles from Gypsy Jazz to Rock and Roll, Blues, and Country. A multi-faceted and versatile player, Jensen is artfully adept as an improvisor and studio performer, and as an ensemble player, bandleader and soloist.
In August 2015, Jensen was invited to join modern guitar master, Stephane Wrembel’s band as the second guitarist. As a member of the SWB, he has performed around the world, from the US Embassy in Abuja, Nigeria, to the Django A Gogo festival at Carnegie Hall.
Prior to joining SWB, Thor was lead guitarist for Quiet Life, a traveling rock band described by The Daily Beast’s James Joiner as “the audio equivalent of a warm, hazy, sunlight-and-nostalgia-drenched photo of the best road trip you’ve ever had.”
Thor is currently in pre-production for two upcoming solo projects. A live trio album of standard repertoire tunes featuring Josh Kaye and Ari Folman-Cohen, and a record of all original rock and roll tunes with Nick Anderson and Ari Folman-Cohen. Both are slated for release in the fall.
