JOHN JENKINS AND THE JAMES STREET BAND LIVERPOOL: Write Blend FRI 9TH NOV, 2018 7:00pm Previously with bands The Persuaders & Come in Tokio, Jenkins has supported the likes of Elvis Costello, The Beat, Echo and The Bunnymen appearing on a half dozen BBC Radio 1 Sessions back in the day including three sessions for the legendary John Peel.

For 20 years John came out of the music industry but still had the urge to play and in late 2014 returned to the front line when he won an award at the Liverpool Acoustic Songwriter's Challenge. Since then, he's not looked back.

He was selected to take part in the 2018 Americana Music Association UK Songwriting Workshop in front of prestigious Songwriting panel consisting of Chris Difford, Mary Gauthier, Beth Nielsen Chapman and Sam Baker Feedback received was “That was Brilliant” “It’s a beautiful song”

He has released several singles and a debut solo album “Trains” to favourable reviews in late 2016. His new solo album “Window Shopping in Nashville” (a 21 track Double CD) was released in September 2017.

In 2016 he wrote the charity Song “Someday We’ll See Better Days” which features 19 of Liverpool finest singers including Ian Prowse, Robert Vincent, Jo Bywater, Paul Dunbar, and Maria Silker. This was recently performed at the New Brighton Floral Hall” by a choir and musicians as part of the “All You Need is Love” Peace Concert

He has made several TV & Radio appearances and his songs have be played on numerous radio stations around the UK.

John plays solo and with his band “John Jenkins and the James Street Band”.

He recently played at the Atkinson Theatre Southport in December 2017 to excellent reviews by National Americana Fatea Magazine. Other recent performances have been at the Smithdown Road Festival in May 2017and the prestigious 2016 Liverpool Folk Festival “Folk on the Dock.
