Blueminded is a Dutch Pop/Rock band, founded in 2012 by guitarist and composer Jörgen Koenen.  As he had been recording his own songs at home,

he wanted to bring these compositions to life and record these songs in a professional studio.  Jörgen contacted some experienced musicians/friends

and Blueminded was created. The band has played some great gigs over the years, performing as a support act for Het Goede Doel and UB40 and

playing live in radio Veronica's Countdown Cafe. They have released a selftitled EP in 2014 and later on two full-length albums, called “Seize the day” and “When lights fade…”. 

On May 27 their third album, called “Break the silence”, will see the light.


The combination of the 80's pop/rock and modern contemporary styles makes Blueminded's sound unique and recognizable. It is influenced by music of

Pop/Rock artists such as Peter Gabriel, Sting, The Police, U2, Genesis, Coldplay, Kane and Muse.

Blueminded can’t wait to hit the road again after a forced break of 2 long years of Covid-19 and therefore no gigs. First gigs for 2022 have been booked already

and they’re thrilled to play some new material from their third album finally!
