Jack Book (born 7 April 1997), is an American singer/songwriter, record producer, and musician. He was born and raised in Darien, Connecticut, but is currently based in Philadelphia and New York City. He is also a former NCAA Division 1 lacrosse player for the University of Pennsylvania.
At a young age, Book was constantly finding ways to perform at functions and to develop as a musician. When he was six years old, Book taught himself to play the piano and began writing songs. Throughout his adolescent years, he started to create music while also pursuing his academic and athletic passions. During his junior year at Darien High School, he starred as "Sid Sorokin" in Theatre 308's spring production of The Pajama Game and was a returning starter for the school's nationally ranked lacrosse team. He was awarded "Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical" at the Halo Awards presented by Seven Angels Theatre.
In 2016, Book attended the University of Pennsylvania and was a member of the men's lacrosse team. Upon being introduced to Logic Pro X, a digital audio workstation created by Apple, his focus shifted heavily towards music production. Following a spinal injury in November of 2017, Book decided to pursue music full time at his residence in Connecticut.
2018-present: Somewhere Else EP
On 15 June 2018, Book released his debut single called "Down & Under" on 5 Mile Records. Over the first three months, the track accumulated over 100,000 streams on Spotify, and over 15,000 on other platforms (i.e. Apple Music, SoundCloud, Google Play, YouTube Music, Amazon Music, Pandora). In 2018, he signed with Broadcast Music Inc. (BMI) and lists it as his performing rights organization.
On 1 August 2018, he released the Somewhere Else EP. The album introduced three new songs, and included "Down & Under" as the third track. The track list is ordered "I'm in Love", "Wish I Could Be (feat. DEEGAN)", "Down & Under", and the title song "Somewhere Else". Lyrically, each song refers to a unique obstacle that he has faced in his life. His music blends the styles of folk rock, future pop, indie, and EDM. "The harmonic, rhythmic, and lyrical flavors fuse the ingredients of modern electro-pop with acoustic themes from the works of Fleetwood Mac, Billy Joel, Jason Mraz, and Jimmy Buffet. His production techniques are inspired by artists like Avicii, DJ Martin Jensen, Grey, and Kygo".
