Jack Kays (born John Michael Kays, December 15, 1998), is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer from Cincinnati, Ohio.
Jack began making and posting music online in 2017 while studying at a culinary school. In 2020, he moved to Washington D.C. and signed with the Columbia Records‘ label. Then, in January 2021, he released his debut album MIXED EMOTIONS, which included the singles MORBID MIND, BOTTOM OF THE BOTTLE and GIN N JUICE.
Music has always been in his family as his father and uncle are both musicians, so he developed an early love for music as both an art form and an outlet. Blending the genres of hip-hop, alternative, and folk, Jack sculpts his own sound with his touching stories. Through his songs, he shares honest accounts of his struggles, raising awareness about mental health, drug addiction, and redemption—all situations and obstacles he has personally faced and overcame.
