“Folk for modern ears” MAVERICK magazine
As seen on BBC1 The One Show!!

Based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, JINSKI are song writer Stephen Wegrzynski and musician Dave Kennedy, a partnership forged from acoustic roots and the love of a strong melody. Their music touches the borders of folk, country, and pop, keeping alive the song writing tradition whilst remaining resolutely modern.

Playing ‘live’ with just two voices and two guitars JINSKI have been touring the UK, honing their craft, chalking up the miles and making new friends wherever they play. They have built a reputation for delivering music for the head and the heart that is full of passion, meaning and originality. Notable supports have been to Joe Jackson, Eliza Carthy , The Proclaimers and Lindisfarne. In October 2016 they will open the show for Kathryn Tickell at The Brewery Arts Centre in Kendall Cumbria. Recent TV appearances include BBC 1 The One Show.

‘Down Here’ on Lucky Smile Records/Proper Music Distribution is the second album from JINSKI and delivers memorable tunes with a cutting lyrical edge, taking the little things that matter and revealing the bigger picture. Here are songs that capture the moment, ask simple questions and offer some reflection. JINSKI tell stories of love, joy, loneliness and longing, capturing the mundane and the magic in everyday life.

Guest artists include the English accordion queen Karen Tweed, New Rope String Band member Pete Challoner (banjo and fiddle), Jez Lowe’s pipes and piano man Andy May and JINSKI stalwart Neil Harland on double bass. It was produced and recorded by Dave Maughan (who has notably worked with Kathryn Williams and Maximo Park)

JINSKI released a 10” vinyl only EP called ‘Live Long’ on Record Store Day April 2015. It is now available as a download.

“You’ll love them for their style, polish and great songs”
