Colony presents Thor Jensen & Belle-Skinner
Thor Jensen splits his time between Brooklyn, and the upper reaches of the Harlem Valley. He writes music and plays songs born from the deep pocket of American roots music that showcase his deep voice and fluid guitar work. He released an EP in 2019 and has another record set for release in summer 2020, featuring Ari Folman-Cohen and Nick Anderson. When not performing his own music, Thor can be heard as a member of The Stephane Wrembel Band, Hazmat Modine, Sweet Megg and Quiet Life.
Belle-Skinner is a dark nostalgic singer-songwriter based in upstate New York and Brooklyn. With a hauntingly beautiful, lilting soprano and innate sense of melody she crafts tales of songbirds, sirens and desert nomads - nuanced and layered stories which bridge the gap between past and present. Though her influences cover a broad range of genres - from French chansons and Russian folk to contemporary alt-pop and rock - her voice often draws comparisons to the likes of Joni Mitchell, Jeff Buckley, early St. Vincent, and Lana Del Rey.
