Blueminded is a new Dutch Pop/Rock band that plays self written songs. The band has been established in 2012 by guitarist Jörgen Koenen, who also writes all the songs. The idea for the band formed when he wanted to take his home demo’s and make something professional out of them. He then contacted some of his friends who are also very experienced musicians to work on the demo’s, record them and do some live performances. The band’s music is inspired by famous names in the pop/rock music (Like Peter Gabriel, Sting. The Police, U2, Genesis, Coldplay, Kane and Muse). Blueminded makes passionate music and combines the style from 80’s pop/rock music with modern sounds. Through all this the band managed to make a very unique and recognizable sound.
Vocalist Rob has a very warm voice and sings with a lot of passion and emotion, which is essential for the sound of the songs. Guitarist, founder and writer Jörgen takes care of most of the business around the band. His guitar sounds combined with the keyboard make a beautiful sound and sets a very unique and beautiful mood. Keyboardist Loek takes care of the beautiful and subtle tones which support the mood of the music. Bassist Franco can play hard pumping rock but can also lay down some groovy bass lines depending on the mood of the song. And last but not least, Drummer Sander (who joined the band at a later stage because the original drummer, Dennis Meentz couldn’t combine Blueminded with his overflowing agenda.) combined with bassist Franco make sure there is a good solid base for the rest of the band.
