He is a critically acclaimed recording artist and staple of the Liverpool singer-songwriter scene.

His 2021 UK tour was performed with Pippa Murdie on Mandolin, guitar and backing vocals.
From his early years in bands The Persuaders and Come in Tokio (both of which made waves in the 80s with support on BBC Radio 1) to his recent success in the root’s scene, Jenkins has developed an engaged audience of fans in the rock, country, and Americana formats.
He has established himself as a live touring act, both solo and collaboratively with his band “John Jenkins and the James Street Band” Chris Difford (Squeeze), Jarrod Dickenson, and Steve Tilson in the last 2 years.
Jenkins latest body of work, 2021’s ‘If You Can’t Forgive You Can’t Love’ gained critical acclaim in the likes of RnR, Folk Radio UK and Americana UK with support from Ralph McLean (BBC Radio Ulster).
The album was so-produced by John Jenkins and Jon Lawton (Sami Yusuf, Two Black Sheep) and mastered by Pete Maher (The Rolling Stones, U2, Patti Smith).
It is available on CD and Digital via Fretsore Records and features the singles “Desert Hearts”, “Kathleen” and “Strangers on A Train”.

“Alison is a singer songwriter, ukulele player, performing stories through song. Three times winner of Liverpool Acoustic Songwriting Challenge, Alison is as ‘adept on the uke as she is with her words and melodies’ (Fatea)
Her debut EP, ‘Paths and Stories’ was released in March 2020 and her second ‘Edenhurst Session’ was released by Klee Music February 2022.”
