JOE JENCKS & HEATHER STYKA
Friday, Jan 25, 2019, 7pm
This concert will be held at The Center for Art and Spirituality, Emmanuel Lutheran Church, 930 3rd Ave, Rockford, IL
Styka’s tunes have a vintage familiarity that draws inspiration from folk and Tin Pan Alley sounds, but the vivid images of her lyrics render her songs as as fresh, smart, and unexpected as they are hummable. Also a poet and writer, Styka crafts songs that analyze moments, places, time, changes, solitude, relationships, and community.
Blending well-crafted instrumentals and vivid songwriting, Jencks serves it all up with a lyric baritone voice that has the edgy richness of a good sea-salt caramel.
An 18-year veteran of the international folk circuit and an award-winning songwriter, and celebrated vocalist based in Chicago Joe is pleased to share the stage with close friend Heather.
