Country singer-songwriter Austin Jenckes is heading to the UK for five shows in 2019.
In support of his forthcoming debut album If You Grew Up Like I Did, released on 31st May 2019, the dates begin with an appearance as part of Nashville Meets London’s residency at PizzaExpress Live in London on 29th May.
Jenckes will then return to the UK in September to play shows in London, Glasgow and Manchester around his performance at The Long Road.
Picking up a solid reputation in the US, Jenckes was selected by Rolling Stone Country as an ‘Artist You Need to Know’. He’s performed alongside the likes of Brothers Osborne, Lee Brice, The Cadillac Three and Ashley McBryde.
Jenckes also performed the National Anthem at his hometown Seattle Seahawks Stadium in front of 65,000 people. In December 2018 he was awarded The ASCAP Foundation Harold Adamson Lyric Award in Country: an honour given to those who have demonstrated talent, musical intelligence and a dedication to future generations.
“I still don’t feel like I know how to do it completely on purpose,” he says, of his innate talent for penning authentic, sincere and supremely hook-rich songs, “but all I can do is focus on telling my story. I can’t wait to play my first show in London May 29th at PizzaExpress Live and then to come back in September to play headlining shows in Glasgow and Manchester before playing my first UK festival show at The Long Road Festival! I’ve heard so much about how great the audiences in the UK are & about how awesome The Long Road was last year, so it’s exciting to get to come experience it for the first time”.

May 29th, Pizza Express Live, Holborn, London
Sept 5th, Bush Hall, London
Sept 6th, The Poetry Club, Glasgow
