“Gorgeous! Wherever you come from and wherever you're going, you will find yourself in the songs on Joe Jencks' The Coming of the Years. It's a page-turner of a concept album that pulls the listener through generations of the immigrant experience and extends musical hands and hearts across the ocean. Throughout, Jencks' timeless voice is deep, warm and sweet, but never saccharine. Top-shelf accompaniment and harmonies limn every detail. His new songs align perfectly with the ancient and the familiar to spin a wholly satisfying saga.” ~ Marilyn Rea Beyer - Host, The Midnight Special, WFMT - Chicago, IL

“A great album! With loved ones remembered at every turn, this album is a personal one for Jencks, and one of his best. And with that knowledge, you may expect maudlin. Instead, The Coming of the Years offers a deeper dive than sorrow, profoundly connecting to a rich, complicated and healing river of love. Each of these songs holds a unique key with the power to unlock even the most recessed truth. Held in Joe Jencks’s care and undeniable talent - this set of songs and arrangements are fully realized, freeing Jencks to embody century-old laments and deftly carry forward contemporary sounds of his own. ” ~ MarySue Twohy, Program Director, SiriusXM

“With his meticulous care, craftmanship and exquisite sensitivity, Joe Jencks has once again blessed us with a thoughtful and stunningly beautiful collection. Themed from the shaping of his own heritage, Joe in his typically generous way encourages each of us to explore and reflect on where we’ve come from. Haunting, melancholy, hopeful and heartfelt all at once, Joe’s gorgeous baritone brings new perspective to the traditional, honour and homage to those written by others, and breathes life to his originals. Goes wonderfully with either a quiet cuppa or a wee dram.” ~ Suze Casey, Artistic Director, Calgary Folk Club

“In a dark and frequently shallow time, how refreshing to hear a man willing to wear his heart on his sleeve. How refreshing to hear someone sing with passion about matters which are not directly related to HIM. A man with a golden voice, who has a great feeling for history, and the role that songs play in documenting that history. The Coming of the Years, by Joe Jencks is a gorgeous record. His reading of City of Chicago is moving to me, and I thank him for it.” ~ Luka Bloom, Singer-Songwriter

"A lovely salute to Joe's Irish heritage!" ~ Sonny Ochs, WIOX - Roxbury, NY

“Interspersing his own songs inspired by visits to Ireland to explore his heritage with carefully chosen covers and traditional pieces, Joe Jencks weaves a tapestry of love, immigration, history, and Irish pride. The instrumental arrangements support the vocals tenderly, giving Jencks' deep warm voice space to bring the lyrics to the fore. The Coming of the Years is an audio treat and a history lesson.” ~ Paul Hartman, Host of "Detour” WTMD - Baltimore, Founder - Dirty Linen Magazine

“With The Coming of the Years, Joe Jencks takes us on a journey outward to the lands he loves, and inward into his own identity as an American, and Irishman, and a songwriter. A strong theme of the album is change, the sense that no place or feeling ever stays the same. Change also shows in Jencks’ instrumentation on the album, with this being his first release to feature the electric bouzouki. Jencks also continues to show his strong support for workers and a commitment to social justice. I applaud Joe Jencks for evolving his sound and songwriting with this latest release, while still remaining true to those themes and ideals most important to him.” ~ Spencer Tritt, Multimedia Producer, WNIJ (NPR) & Host - Sessions from Studio A

"The Coming of the Years, is more than an exceptional listening experience of songs influenced by Joe Jencks’ Celtic heritage. Led by Joe's warm, rich vocals, and enhanced by superb musical guests, you'll feel wonderfully immersed in time and place. This is a gem of a recording, and a 'must-have' for everyone's folk library!” ~ Lilli Kuzma, host of "Folk Festival" on WDCB Public Radio

“Jencks is living his heritage, and the picture he paints of his dual American/Irish citizenship is matched by his deep and rich baritone and a mastery of the guitar. Jencks’ Ireland is one of poets and artists. Whiskey is a sacrament, not a poison, and he is an ambassador whose combination of originals and covers had me thinking that my high school and college history lessons on Ireland were as whitewashed as that of slavery in the United States.” ~ Don Wilcock, Nippertown Albany, NY

“Although Joe Jenck's new album The Coming of the Years was inspired by an examination of his own Irish-American heritage, you will walk away with a deeper appreciation for your own roots, wherever they were established. Joe has composed and collected songs that take us on a journey through the lives of those who came before us, instilling pride in what they accomplished and inspiring us to carry on their dreams. Through his own rich voice and vision, Joe Jencks, takes us to places in our very own hearts and souls that were long overdue for a visit. The Coming of the Years is a welcome trip. ~ Ron Olesko, Founder - Folk Music Notebook, Host of “Traditions” WFDU, Teaneck, NJ

“Joe Jencks' new album, The Coming Of The Years, is beautifully produced and puts Joe's voice and songwriting front and center, right where they belong. The songs tell stories of love for the land, the hardships of living in Ireland, and emigration. I'll be listening to this album for a long time to come.” ~ Joe Angel - Random Routes, KEOS, College Station, TX

“A deeply personal, heartfelt work. A testament to the struggles and hopes of the Irish people, and Joe’s growing connection to his roots. The well-thought-out combination of Joe’s original songs, traditional songs, and covers, makes for a unique and very moving listening experience!” ~ Graham and Barbara Dean, Common Sense Songs - WBCR, Great Barrington, MA

“This album is wonderful. There is something special about Joe Jencks' songs about immigration and his Irish heritage. And here is an entire album of such songs. Yet this album is not just about the Irish experience. Jencks' rich voice and the spare instrumentations give the songs a universal relevance. This is a powerful and heartfelt body of work that will occupy a favored spot in our listening rotation.” ~ Celene and Geof Lyon - Old Sloop Concerts - Rockport, MA

Advance Reviews:

“If one can master a craft after investing 10,000 hours, Joe Jencks’ hours are showing! I am literally stunned by this new album. Poets, Philosopher, Workers & Wanders tells our stories, his story, and the untold stories, as an American folk master can - with heart and unfettered perfection. Add this one to the folk canon! ”
~ MarySue Twohy, SIRIUS XM Radio – The Village / The Bridge

Poets, Philosophers, Workers & Wanderers -is absolutely Joe Jencks’ finest effort thus far. Jencks’ captivating tenor voice, lofted by flawless production, demonstrates music of conscience and provides a feast for the ear as well as nourishment for the soul.”
~ Rich Warren, The Midnight Special – WFMT, Chicago, IL

"Beyond the fine selection of songs and the talented team assembled in the studio, what really shines through on Joe Jencks' new album are his resonant, honey-rich voice, his open-hearted humanity, and his commitment to social justice. We need artists who inspire our better selves more than ever, don't we?"
~ John Platt , Sunday Supper, WFUV, New York, NY

The songs on Weights and Wings represent the evolution the group and its members have undergone. This is Brother Sun’s most emotionally immediate and musically diverse work yet, and it affirms the power of song to accompany each of us from grief and loss into new worlds of possibility, light and promise. Ranging from gospel and blues-inflected grooves through delicate ballads, with playful dips into zydeco and jazzy a cappella, the ensemble’s muscular and precise harmonies provide the optimism and uplift in every song. The CD’s instrumentation, creating textures from introspectively etheral to rocking and gritty, is rounded out by guest musicians Jon Carroll on piano, organ, and accordion, Chico Huff on bass, and Matt Scarano on drums and percussion.

Joe Jencks delivers an album that is so personal and so passionate that it shatters any stereotype and places him solidly on the map as one of the finest modern singer songwriters. Joe's vocal performances are unparalleled, and a stellar cast of supporting musicians contributes to make the recording an exceptional piece of work from start to finish. Guests include: Jon Carroll (Mary Chapin Carpenter's pianist) keyboards, Pat Wictor on slide guitars, Siobhan Quinn on backing vocals, Jim Robeson on electric bass, Charlie Pilzer on upright bass, Bob Beach on harmonica, Charlie Bernhardt, and the Jencks Family on vocals.

The Candle And The Flame combines the many facets of Joe's diverse musical background and weaves them all together into an aural tapestry that is stark and exquisite. Joe sings with the passion of an R & B/Gospel singer, the knowledge of a classical vocalist, the soul of an Irish Tenor, and the conscience of a troubadour. At the center of Joe's music is an abiding love for all humanity, a love that transcends the everyday and boarders on the mystical.
