“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.”
