Back to Blues Heaven here...

Thorbjørn Risager is twice the winner of the award ‘Årets Danske Bluesudgivelse’ in 2013 and 2014. He is a guitarist, singer, and songwriter, educated at Copenhagen rhythmical music college.
Thorbjørn has a unique voice, which forces you to listen closely – sort of a blend between Ray Charles, Bob Seger, and Joe Cocker. In 2014, before releasing the multi award winning album ‘Too Many Roads’, the band changed its name into ‘Thorbjørn Risager and The Black Tornado’, thus manifesting that this is a REAL band and not just some random musicians backing a singer. In India, at Mumbai’s greatest blues festival, they appeared on stage with the legendary Buddy Guy.
