Music and Family Are What Motivate Him
Noah Jack wasn’t able to talk until he was five years old, but recalls being able to hum at age four. “I always tell people I learned how to sing before I was able to talk. So music has always been in my life, even when I was a kid,” he says.
“A letter to my friends and family who were there for me from start to finish.“
That’s how Noah Jack refers to his song Neighborhood. “It’s mostly about my family back home in Park Ridge, Illinois. The song talks about the images in my neighborhood. The lyrics are about the people in my hometown and how they impacted me in my life. I was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder at the age of two, and the song is a thank you letter to all of the people who helped me.”
Noah started singing when he was very young, and began to write songs in his freshman year of high school. He has had the opportunity to perform at Wrigley Field and the United Center in Chicago, and decided he would pursue music not just as a hobby, but as a career. Now, at Belmont University, Noah’s goal is to make music about family, community, and people who have helped him with his challenges. In a track called Perfectly Imperfect, Noah Jack writes about triumph and overcoming obstacles in life regardless of who you are. Noah’s closest companion is his older brother, who was the inspiration for the song, “Brother.”
Noah Jack plans to release his debut EP, All InThe Family, in January. You can check out his debut single on Spotify, as well as other tracks on SoundCloud. Follow Noah on Facebook and Instagram for updates!
