Thor Jensen is a New York guitarist with a unique sound that seamlessly integrates his masterful technique with the styles that influence him, allowing him to traverse genres from Gypsy Jazz to Rock and Roll, Blues, Country and Funk. Jensen is a multi-faceted and versatile player, 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 gypsy jazz guitar master, Stephane Wrembel’s band as the rhythm 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.”
