Bjørn is also a highly respected guitarist within the internet guitar community, with his own blog followed by thousands of fans each week.
junXion is an epic modern day ‘70’s progressive rock band, founded in 2010. The band combines various styles, such as symphonic metal, fusion, electronics and ambient, with unexpected twists. The sound of the 4-man core is enriched by selected guest artists to reinforce the stories being told. For instance a jazz saxophone, or gospel, pop or classical vocals, can contribute to expound cultural and social problems, politics, science, and rabbits. Band members: Martijn Hak (keys), Roel Trommelen (drums), Maarten Jung (guitar) and bass player Julian Haerkens.http://www.junxion.eu/
