“The craft of songwriting is in great hands… ” - Diana Ennis, KKFI
Jack Summers is an award-winning songwriter from Weston, Missouri. He found his musical roots in trips to the Walnut Valley Music Festival and Bob Dylan lyrics repurposed as bedtime stories. Jack embraces these influences and is motivated by the challenge of making them resonate with a modern audience.
In 2021, Jack released his debut album, 'No Longer and Not Yet,' a reflection on transitional places and emotions. Like much of his work, this album is about searching for answers.
For the past two years, Jack has served as an AmeriCorps VISTA member at Art as Mentorship, a nonprofit that organizes songwriting camps for teenagers with a focus on mental health and community building.
Jack is touring in support of his upcoming EP, "Stuck Just Passing Through," a project partially funded by the National Endowment for the Arts.
