…you make me sing, THE JENKINS TWINS – Rose Red Dress
The Jenkins Twins – Rose Red Dress is available at Apple Music, Spotify, SoundCloud.
by Walter Price
Kentucky’s The Jenkins Twins [Trenton and Trevor] have a studied love of the history of harmony-filled mountain music. And their recent single, “Rose Red Dress”, is solid proof that these brothers put substance and authenticity above flare and commercialism. Instead, these two have two feet planted in the hallowed past while another two are firmly steadied in the ever evolving now. This track, a story of overwhelming pride and awe of the beauty of one’s partner, will find fans of The Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison, and Buddy Holly pleased as punch that this timeless sound hasn’t been lost on newer generations.
You can stream “Rose Red Dress” as well as 2015’s downhome beauty, “Jellico”, now at the GTC. And if you dig the music of Orville Peck, Colter Wall, and/or The Civil Wars, then add this new one to your favorite head-over-heels playlists.

“Our older stuff, we were kind of young then, and our musical influences didn’t show through as well. I feel like a band’s goal a lot of the time is to make yourself sound like the bands you like. That’s one of the hardest things to do. We’ve grown up a little bit and done our research, and I feel like we’re close to bridging that gap.” – Trenton Jenkins
