Members: Chris, Bryan, Aaron, Joel, Adam and Jake
The Widow Jenkins originally started back in September 2003. The band wrote and recorded a self titled EP that created a huge buzz. In May of 2004...The Widow Jenkins met its demise. The members went their separate ways...trying to fill the void that the break up left in its wake.
Chris "Swiss" Swinney began touring all over North America with various bands such as The Reason(Warner Bros. Records), Brazil(Immortal Records), and Underminded(Kung Fu Records)...working as tour manager, guitar tech, and playing bass for the latter two respectively.
Bryan Nelson was hired by mobile recording company, Disc Live...and toured with the likes of Vertical Horizon(RCA) and The Fixx(MCA)...while also working at Sonic Iguana Studios during his time home with bands like Break The Silence(Hopeless Records) and Big In Japan.
Aaron Glass moved to Indianapolis...started Art School...and wrote and recorded numerous acoustic themed songs of his own.
Adam Glass moved to Indianapolis...formed a new band called Istari, and released an EP. He focused on his writing, and had one of his short stories published.
In September 2006...after many talks about how much fun the band had been...the members decided to reunite...and that brings us to where we are now. With new drummer Jake Dwiggins and third guitarist Joel "Chopper" Green(ex Emery) in tow...The Widow Jenkins is poised to take over the music world! It feels good to be back!!!
