Dana Jorgensen is not what you expect ....
From aspiring hockey player to worship leader, from Ottawa, Ontario to the Music City, Dana Jorgensen has been on an incredible journey that God has perfectly orchestrated to bring him to this moment, and has made his third album Everything to Beautiful – in stores August 16, 2011 - to reality.
Dana grew up, like many Canadian young men, dreaming of a professional hockey career. Playing on backyard rinks, frozen ponds and as many teams as he could fit in his schedule, Dana excelled at the sport until he suffered the last of 8 dangerous concussions. Paired with breaking several major bones, Dana was forced to hang up his skates, and his dreams of the NHL.
In a strange turn of fate, Dana was asked if he could sing, and quickly found himself performing for a year at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. After finishing this contract, Dana moved to Vancouver, BC to front a band and tour throughout the west coast.
Realizing the life of a rock star wasn’t for him, Dana took a job as a youth leader and worship leader at North Shore Alliance Church that began a 3 year journey of soul-searching, spiritual growth, and honing his skills as a musician and songwriter. Then in the January of 2005, a significant door opened. In one day, not only was Dana able to obtain dual citizenship between Canada and the US, but three offers were presented to move to Nashville and move forward on his music career.
And Dana has never looked back. He has moved his family to the hills of Tennessee where he has not only continued his other passions of fishing and hunting, Dana worked as a songwriter, backup musician and began his own solo career.
On this, Dana’s first album with his new label Mosaic Artistry Group, Everything to Beautiful expresses a maturity and honesty that can only come from Dana’s own journey. Joined by producer Ryan Sutton, Dana was able to enlist a friend, Monroe Jones to produce background vocals, as well as band mates Ryan Mitchell on drums and Craig McClellan on electric guitars and programming.
Everything to Beautiful is an honest, open journey into the questions and challenges involved in truly trusting God. But truly, when we allow God to do his work, we realized that no matter where we’ve come from, no matter where we are, no matter how dark the path may seem, God truly turns Everything to Beautiful.
