Houston native Jack Freeman (born November 8, 1988) is an American singer with a voice and a message of love. His sultry yet smooth style has been honed by artists such as Donny Hathaway, OutKast, D’Angelo, Chaka Khan and Scarface just to name a few. Jack has also had the opportunity to open for the likes of Bilal and John Legend as well as Anthony Hamilton, Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, Brian McKnight, PJ Morton, Phife Dawg and Tito Jackson.
Jack’s latest offerings include a carefully crafted EP titled Leather (2019) and the album Define Love to further add to his euphonious roster. He has also appeared as a guest on the Joe Budden Podcast and embarked on a solo Eastern European tour, including stops in Almaty & Moscow, before ending a US tour with Houston rapper Scarface.
When asked how he would like to influence others with his music, Jack had this to say: “I want my music to influence people to love through all of the things going on around them; to find something, or someone, and love it with everything you’ve got. I’d also like to provide the soundtrack to what people feel. Lots of people feel things but can’t find the words. I want my music to be those words.”
