The Coming of the Years is an album centered around songs Joe Jencks wrote while on tour in Ireland over a 12-year period.  This album emerges as a synergistic blend of Jencks' Irish and Celtic heritage with themes of immigration  spanning multiple generations.  As a dual U.S./Irish citizen, Jencks has been swimming in these waters musically and personally for decades.  The Coming of the Years is a deep musical exploration of identity and place, carried forward by beautiful melodies, expressive vocals and rich lyric narrative.
