Mojo Makers (DK)

Kasper Osman - Guitar, Vocals
Kristian Hoffmann - Lead Guitar
Krsitian Bast - Bass
Morten Hæsum - Drums

With only two records released, both nominated for the Danish Music Award, Mojo Makers has made quite  a mark on the musical map already. The group was nominated best band in Europe by the British Blues Organasation, Chosen for the best blues record of the year by the English Blues and soul Magazine. Furtermore the group has got a lot of airplay in England and recived some very good revievs in Britan and Germany as well.

The Mojo Makers started playing on a regular basis at a small club in the middle of Copenhagen called Mojo Blues Bar. In a dark room filled with chain smoking and heavyly drinking audiences the group slowley developed their own style. Founder of the band, guitarist, singer and songwriter Kasper Osman threw new numbers at the crowd almost every night and watched peoples reaction to the music. If he did not get any respons from the listeners the song wasent on the set list the next night. This guideline tells a lot abaut how The Mojo Makers work. All their songs are being tested/ played in front of a live audience, and if a song pass the test it gets to stay alive and eventually ends up on a record.

The blues has always been the core of the Mojo Makers DNA and for every new record the group explores new facets of the genre. Kasper Osman says: ” I have the deepest respect for the old blues masters and the people now a days who follow the old tradition and sound, but I can not do that. I have to challenge the genre and by doing that I feel I can add something of myself into the music.”

Lead singer Kasper Osman takes you back to guys like Paul Rodgers and Robert Plant. With his mysterious and seductive voice he captures a song and possess it. Apart from being an outstanding  songwriter he is also one of the best rock-roots singers Scandinavia has produced recently. Also lead guitar player Kristian Hoffmann`s personal and sovereign way of playing the guitar stands out and leaves an impression. He is highly skilled at his instrument but his unpredicteble and agressive way of playing saves him from being something you have heard before.

On Mojo Makers third and most recent record, Songs of the Sirens, which will be released 21 st of Septmeber 2018 on Jazzhaus Records the group uses the blues music as a stepping stone and mix it with a lot of roots, rock and soul. The group deliver 12 unique tracks which all point in various directions. On the opening track Bless my soul you get a punch in the groins by the tempo and intensety the band provides, opposite to the number Away which takes you to an introvertet almost whispering and haunting place. The Mojo Makers challenge the music with their  oncompromising approach to the genre, but they also challenge the listener. You have to listen to the record a lot of times to capture all of the details and because of that, this Danish group is an interesting and exciting acquaintance.  The Mojo Makers  comes from Denmark but somehow they managed to extract the basic elements and knowledge of the Amarican music and make it into something of there own. When you listen to the record Songs of the Sirens you can understand why some critics have named them the new Nordic generation of blues.
