After a long and mutual admiration of each other’s work, Brianna Tagg and Kurt Jorgensen have joined to form the most exciting new Twin Cities bands of the year. The two troubadours teamed up to record Brianna’s debut album Wake Up, with Kurt acting as producer and arranger for Brianna’s multi-instrumentalist talents. It did not take long for the pair to team up as songwriters and performers to form Jorgensen Tagg. The sound is powerful and undeniably fresh, taking root in rock, blues, pop, and soul from influences like Fleetwood Mac, Civil Wars and Delaney & Bonnie. The two performers are fast making an indelible mark on the Local and national music scene.
Kurt Jorgensen is the long time band leader of the Kurt Jorgensen Band, releasing eight albums to date and receiving the praise of fans and critics alike. The Minnesota Music Awards has presented Kurt with singer of the year, entertainer of the year, songwriter of the year album of the year and song of the year.
Brianna has toured nationwide and has also performed multiple times at South by Southwest, impressing industry luminaries and fans. Jorgensen Tagg performs as a duo and as a quartet with veteran musicians Dave Russ (drums) and Brenda Lee King (Bass). The power duo is currently recording and writing their first collaborated album.
