The Jigantics plus Campbell Jensen
The Jigantics are a four-piece band, who are enjoying rave reviews throughout Europe for their outstanding live performances. Their frankly astonishing reimagining of well-known and not so well-known songs marks them out as a band at the top of their game. The Jigantics foot-tapping, feel good and then totally convincing tearjerkers makes for a remarkable and spellbinding evening’s entertainment. The whole effect is one of wondering what may come next and then being surprised when the unexpected happens. With all four members contributing vocals, and stunning four-part harmonies, it’s not just their musicianship that is world class.
Ashley Campbell and Thor Jensen form a unique meeting of musical genres as the duo Campbell/Jensen. With Ashley coming from the world of country and Americana and Thor having a diverse background from rock to gypsy jazz, they create a fresh sound as a duo. Ashley Campbell, daughter of country legend Glen Campbell began her career playing in her father's band on several world tours and has found success as a solo artist in the country music scene; most notably with her debut single "Remembering" which she wrote for her father. Her original music has taken her all over the world, from China to Japan, to the mainstage at London's O2 Arena to opening for Kris Kristofferson and the Bellamy Brothers. She has also been spotlighted for her banjo playing with Rascal Flatts in the music video for their hit single "Banjo".
Thor Jensen, a virtuoso guitarist and songwriter from New York has traveled many different roads. From touring the world with Hazmat Modine, playing Americana with Quiet Life opening for the likes of Dr. Dog, Portugal. The Man and Shovels and Rope, then onto joining the Stephane Wrembel Band, playing the music of Django Reinhardt, performing at Carnegie Hall and all over the world, all the while immersing himself in New York's jazz scene.
Ashley and Thor met in late 2021 and have been playing music together ever since. Both being strong instrumentalists in addition to the combination of Thor's deep baritone and Ashley's clear as a bell vocals, together they make a one of a kind blend. They are currently writing and recording their debut album (set for a 2023 release) and will tour the UK and EU in Autumn 2023.
