The Reason’ is the first release and new single by John Jenkins following his critically acclaimed album Tuebrook that was released in July 2023. It is the first track of six that will be released monthly that, thematically, wouldn’t’t fit on the Tuebrook album. You would be forgiven if you listened to ‘The Reason’ and thought it’s a song about love between two couples in a relationship, but it digs deeper than that and you will find it captures the unconditional bond and love of a son towards his mother within the emotional lyrics and music. To be released on March 8th, 2024, which coincidentally would have been John’s mother’s birthday and is a few days before ‘Mother’s Day’. ‘The Reason’ is co-produced by John Jenkins and Jon Lawton (Sami Yusuf, Ian Prowse, Only Child) and mastered by Pete Maher (The Rolling Stones, U2, Patti Smith). This will be available from the usual digital retailers

John will be releasing the follow up to the critically acclaimed “Fretsore Record” solo album “If You Can’t Forgive, You Can’t Love”, with a new solo album due out on 7th July 2023 called “Tuebrook”.

“Christopher Roberts” is the second release from this album and the follow up to the recently released song “Shadows.”

Recorded at Crosstown Studios in Liverpool with Jon Lawton and Pippa Murdie.

“This is an autobiographical song. When I was in junior school, Christopher Roberts was a school class friend I had. Being a catholic school and doing our 11 plus exam Everyone in our class ended up going to different senior schools. I never saw him again once we moved on and I often wonder how life treated him, did he marry, has he a fam-ily? I sometimes think that as over 50 years have passed, I could be sitting facing him in a pub or next to him at a bus stop and be totally unaware it is him.”

I was tempted to call my new album “63” after my age like Adele does with her albums but I bottled it out because it looked a bit naff on the cover plus I’d be questioned where the other 62 albums where in my catalogue”

Incidentally the father and child recordings at the be-ginning of the song talking about school is actually me and my Dad from about 1964.
