Lost Between Clouds of Tumbleweed & Space
Jens Einer Sorensen a.k.a J.TEX was born in the capitol of soul -Detroit, Michigan on Dec. 08 1965. Allready as a kid, growing up in Copenhagen, Denmark, J.Tex felt drawn to his native country. Always in tune with, and tuning in on the cultural influence coming from America. When he was 5 years old he wanted and got his first guitar and have never let go of it since. He started playing festivals together with his moms friends and in his late teens he wrote his first song 'Big bad woman' and found an outlet for his creativity. At the age of 20 J.Tex went back to the States to search for his roots. J. Tex started out his journey in Nashville, Tennessee with a guitar in one hand, and a paintbrush in the other, he travelled all over the South. After a few months of doing odd jobs, he found himself on a long journey through the backroads of the South. He had a great companion and mentor in the fire-burning carnivalpainter and artist 'the one legged man' John Heiner. J.TEX had a lesson for life -learning the trade of art, and living the wild life on the road. When travelling long hours up and down interstate highway 75, he always found time for writing songs when Jamming with old-timers, and everyday American heroes. In 1990 J. Tex was back in Europe. With a couple of friends he filled his car with pots, pans, instruments, tape-recorders whatever - you name it they had it, and vent from Denmark, to live in the region of Tuscany, Italy. The first few months were spent in the city of Florence. Every night J. Tex and his friends, could be found 'busking'. Soon he formed his first band Einsteins Explosive Bullie Brothers. And the band played all over Tuscany, every little town on the map, and won 1 th. Price in the International buskerawards. In the mid 90' J. Tex was back in Denmark were he started to get his act together. He continued travelling to the States with his friends and always had an instrument in the trunk for writing and performing, whether on the radio, sleasy beer-joints or more arthy-farthy venues. In 2001 J. Tex founded the band the Volunteers, and based in Copenhagen, Denmark, the band has been playing this scene for a few years now and have quite a reputation as a fabulous lifeband. His debut the album Lost between clouds of tumbleweed and space' was recorded in Sing Sing Studio, produced, arranged and recorded by J.TEX in the summer of 2005.
