John has been working hard on the follow-up to the criti-cally acclaimed and 2022 Mercury Award Nominated so-lo album “If You Can’t Forgive, You Can’t Love”, with a new solo album due out on 7th July 2023.

He has also recorded several tracks with his “James Street Band” with a view to a new band album release later in 2023.

The first John Jenkins and the James Street Band album “Looking for that American Dream” was critically ac-claimed upon its release in 2020.

“Trying My Best (To Get Away from You)” is their first re-lease of 2023.

“I tend to keep the quiet and stripped-back songs for my solo albums, so I quite surprise some listeners with the more up-tempo tunes that I perform and record with the “James Street Band,” John says.

“I guess I look at Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young who have two outlets for their songs – solo and their band stuff. It’s not unique but for me, as a songwriter, it’s a rewarding experience being able to do both kinds of songs, on the albums and in live shows.

“To share the stage with such a great bunch of musi-cians and talent is so rewarding. I feel quite fortunate. They all are great songwriters themselves so I really have to up my game when bringing songs into our sets.

“We try and put a really good show on. I have written a bunch of new songs with live shows in mind and they've been going down really well with our audiences Our new single “Trying My Best (To Get Away from You)” is one of these tracks.”

“Trying My Best (To Get Away from You)” will be released on February 3rd 2023 from all digital platforms and Bandcamp.

A Quiet Revolution: Day After Day EP by John Jenkins and the James Street Band ‘Day After Day’ is the latest release from the prolific Liverpool musician John Jenkins. Five powerful songs of reflection, observation and insight with an unerring focus on the modern world. These songs lay bare the flaws, problems and injustices of life in the current political climate while reflecting on nostalgia, personal goals and living well. A ‘Design for Life’ if you will. Hard hitting but softly spoken; a gentle call for common sense and humanity. There are stories and characters in these songs. Two-line snapshots that economically paint pictures worthy of Paul McCartney. Broad brush strokes that stir the imagination. The EP showcases a maturity both lyrically and instrumentally. Different musical styles combine to produce a cohesive whole. This is both personal and political. There is sadness in this work tempered by optimism and faith in the future. This is a soundtrack for our times. Sing along.
