Trains – Solo Debut Album

Stereo Stickman - A great songwriter. An artist with the ability to create an image of the music, to build a soundscape that reflects the ideas & the theme flawlessly. John Jenkins is an incredibly skilled storyteller. Hear the whole thing in full – you won’t stumble upon a single moment of disappointment. This type of songwriting and musical expression is rare

His debut solo album “Trains” was released in September 2016 and received a 9/10 rating from Liverpool Sound and Vision (John Jenkins makes the album’s engines purr with delight before devouring up the miles in the listener’s heart.)

Liverpooletc.com - very good songs, played by great musicians, are still the only currency that counts when we get down to the nitty gritty. The nitty gritty of Jenkins’ songs is love, loss and longing presented on a bed of gentle guitars, violin lines, dancing accordions and proper harmonies. All aboard…

Alex Huskisson – Severnfm “Class”
