Jörg Danielsen, the master of sarcasm and black humor in the realm of blues, has been a prominent figure in the music industry for nearly two decades. Born in Vienna, Austria, in 1982, Jörg’s journey through the world of blues has left an indelible mark on the genre and captivated audiences around the globe.
From a young age, Jörg Danielsen was drawn to the unconventional allure of blues music. Even during his school days, he would introduce his classmates to the haunting melodies of the blues, often leaving them both startled and intrigued by the depth of this timeless genre. At the tender age of 16, Jörg’s father introduced him to the legendary “Bluesman” club in Vienna, where he witnessed a mesmerizing performance by Peter Kern and Sigi Fassl. This experience ignited a passion within him that would define his life’s work.
It wasn’t long before Jörg decided to form his own blues band, a decision that would ultimately shape his musical career. Although the initial band disbanded three years later, Jörg’s love for the blues remained unwavering. Returning to Vienna, he immersed himself in countless jam sessions, honing his craft and expanding his musical horizons.
Fate smiled upon Jörg when he crossed paths with Gerhard Beisteiner, a talented double bassist, and together, they gave birth to a new blues sensation: The Vienna Blues Association. Concurrently, Jörg initiated his very own blues jam session in Vienna, creating a platform for fellow musicians to share their love for the blues. Their performances, whether with the Vienna Blues Association or at Jörg’s legendary blues jam sessions, showcase a rich repertoire of blues classics by legends like Albert Collins, Magic Slim, and Muddy Waters, alongside their original compositions.

“Blues Straight Outta Buenos Aires” – An international endeavor that saw Jörg conquer Argentina with the Verteramo Trio & Jorge Costales and the “Blues Company,” showcasing his global appeal.
In 2017, Jörg’s musical odyssey led him to Argentina, where he embarked on a successful tour with the local blues band Verteramo Trio & Jorge Costales, as well as the “Blues Company,” introducing his mesmerizing album to audiences across the country. During this tour, he had the privilege of collaborating with renowned musicians like Mártin Burguez (El Club del Jump) and Juancho Hernandez (Evil Blues Band / La Frondosa Records).
But Jörg’s reach extends far beyond Argentina’s borders. In Europe, he has been a prolific traveler, gracing stages across Austria, Germany, and Switzerland with his trio, the Vienna Blues Association, in both the spring and autumn of 2017.
