Music can do much more than just entertain. It can elevate, heal, communicate, and catalyse. It can move us in ways we forgot were possible.

Song can produce a sublime feeling of oneness if you are part of the choir. Lyrics can reprogram a mind if you recite them with enough feeling. Sound can be infinitely intimate if you are sharing it with others. Dance can be viscerally therapeutic if it flows freely. Improvisation can be magical if you’re pulling random creativity from your subconscious. Poetry can heal if you treat it deliberately. A concert can be communion with your tribe if you experience belonging. We need only be reminded that musicality is a gift we all possess; as ubiquitous as thought and as natural as breath.
“Music is a powerful medium whose true potential has been greatly limited by the boxes and formats we have confined it to: radio-singles, albums, playlists, concert halls. We need only be reminded that it was once ritual and rite – a way of weaving social fabric, a testament to our identity, a way to recognise our own. It was also a direct line to the gods as well as the living world around us.”


“It is a sort of artistic alchemy, where an audience members’ innate musicality and their desire to participate are the key ingredients. I draw people into a space of new possibilities. Participation makes the experience rich, but it also enriches those taking part. A healthy dose of fun keeps us from taking any of it too seriously.”


Jurgis constantly explores music (it’s meaning, expressions and applications), as well as ways of using it to nudge behaviours, elevate humanity, and confront pressing issues creatively. Every one of his singles released since 2015 is a micro-campaign that seeks to not only place a tune in people’s minds and playlists, but convey something deeper as well.
Whether it’s a catchy track that addresses attitudes towards immigration, or a call to consider the practical importance of cultural heritage, Jurgis is always out to do more than just hold attention. “Without intention, music has no substance; it is but an empty vessel – a book without a plot, food that does not nourish.”
