Dust & Scratches is the band’s 6th CD in 7 years and contains 11 originals – nine written by Thorbjørn and two by the newest band member, guitarist Peter Skjerning. As on all of the CD’s, and on the concerts, the seven-piece live band is backing Thorbjorns ”larger-than-life voice” although this time, there are a few songs with a smaller lineup, without the horns and on one track even down to a duo.
No doubt – Dust & Scratches will confirm Thorbjørn’s position as one of the strongest voices of European blues today, both when it comes to his extraordinary vocal chords and his expression, not to mention his unique songwriting talents.
And with a tight and swinging band – started 8 years ago and still with 5 of the original members – who performs with the same intensity in the studio as live, they are bound for success!
Track Record, their previous recording, certainly made them take a leap into new territories! Being selected as one of the most-listened-to CD’s in BluesRevue’s office, winning Bronze in the International Songwriting Competition (ISC) and making a licensing deal with Dixiefrog, the leading label for blues & roots music in France are some examples of the respect that they earned since Track Record was released two years ago. And it’s certainly been two busy years, with over 90 gigs per year in a dozen countries – making them one of the most successful Danish bands, when it comes to touring abroad!
