What do Jens Lehman & The Time Cops sound like?

Rock? R&B? Soul?

More like the sound six guys create after spending their lives listening to heroes come out of their speakers- then taking to their amps to do the same thing.

They sound like a singing Gibson with swinging horns, a hard beat with a groovy bass line.

They sound like the bright chords of an electric piano. The same chords that bounced off apartment walls a thousand times.
They sound like Spring-time in full-stride, teenage misadventures, and redemption under a perfect sky.
In short, they sound like Jens Lehman & the Time Cops.

Press Quotes


“Jens Lehman & The Time Cops played at Bodega’s, offering their poppy take on jazz rock combinations. The six-piece band included trumpet player Taylor Cobb and saxophone player John Borstelmann, solidifying a soulful thread that ran from beginning to end. Overall, the tone of their performance was light-hearted and fun, offering a pleasant set to onlookers.”

-Hear Nebraska


“Lehman has potential to carve out a groovy niche for himself and his talented band in the R&B and newly revitalized funk genres”




“Of all the songwriters I've worked with in the past few years, Jens is truly among the most interesting...I don't typically hear artists who write in the vein of Dilla and Van Morrison, but it starts making sense when you listen to his stuff."

-Hear Nebraska


"A singular piano pop thread runs through All That We Could Do...But it also tends to duck in-and-out of experimentation with that classic sound, touching on funk, jazz and even classic rock.”
