Jurgen started with guitar since he was 5. At age 11, he managed to get a band together and has rocked steadily ever since. J.D.'s new instrumental album "Cruisin' Around" is influenced by Rockabilly - Surf - and Twang music. His playing style is again a perfect match with these genres! The album title says it all, this is an album for cruising around and enjoying your ride! The album starts with "Mariachi Land", a track to enjoy the Summer sun, cocktails and beaches! In March 2013 Jurgen received (at Los Angeles) "The Akademia Music Award" for best instrumental guitar album! In March 2014 Jurgen received again a " Akademia Music Award" for best instrumental album with Cruisin' Around! This may prove that we are going to hear much more from Jurgen as a guitarist!
