Jack & Jack Want Their Music To Inspire & Move People

Jack & Jack Want Their Music To Inspire & Move People

Jack & Jack take the cover of Rollacoaster magazine’s Spring/Summer 2019 issue.

The duo opened up about their music, the effects of social media, and being respected in the music industry. Check it out:

Jack G on social media: “I think a lot of people, if they got that influx of followers and subscribers that quickly, would let it get to their head and change as a human. I think having Jack allowed me to keep my head screwed on and vice versa. If either of us started becoming a diva or said something that sounded all ‘Hollywood’, we were like, ‘Man, remember where we’re from. Remember our 18 year friendship and everything we’ve been through. We’re just these normal kids, let’s not act like we’re superstars when we’re not yet, when we’ve not even accomplished anything yet.’”

Jack G on their music: “The main thing is that we want our music to be played around the world and we want it to inspire people and move people and make people feel things and bring people together. I feel like that’s the whole point of music – to bring people together. Each song also has their own theme in the story that anyone can interpret the way they want and that’s the beauty of music as well. But for us, all we can hope for is that people take it positively and can share it with their friends and family.”

Jack J on being respected in the music industry: “A lot of the credit goes to our fans, because they were the ones who would stream songs on repeat and people would see that and be like, ‘Oh, these kids are doing this for real!’ We owe all that credit to our fans. It’s amazing what it’s turned into and Jack and I are just really grateful. It’s a blessing, honestly.”

“This is one of the most special, meaningful things in the world,” she wrote. “Numbers and awards don’t drive me, but it is really special that this many people wanted to listen to my music.”

THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST SPECIAL, MEANINGFUL THINGS IN THE WORLD. My album went platinum, Havana is now 7 times platinum, and Never Be The Same has gone two times platinum!!!!!!!!! Numbers and awards don’t drive me, but it is really special that this many people wanted to listen to my music- I used to get up at 7 am when I was 16 and write songs to other people’s instrumentals in my garage band. I carried them around for years thinking no one would hear original songs from me for 10 years LOL, but then came time to write my first album in a real studio- it was one of the most special, intoxicating, consuming experiences of my life – I poured every part of myself into it and it really feels like every song is my baby. When any of you say something about real friends or in the dark, or any of the deep cuts,and tell me what they mean to you or that you relate- it means more to me than anything else. Because to someone’s song means you like the song (and that is also insanely special) but listening to an album means you are willing to take the time to travel into their world, into their mind, and into their vulnerability. I’m lucky that songs like Havana and Never Be The Same are ones that are so personal to me that they also feel like secrets or fun parts of me that you guys sing along to, but you willing to take the time to listen to the whole album- means more to me than you know. @Frankdukes thanks for being the most talented, driven, passionate producer ever and doing this with me and being a big brother to me, thank you to all of our incredible collaborators!!!!! And to you guys, thank you for giving me your time, for listening, for caring- I can’t wait to show you the next chapter soon- it’s already the most special thing I’ve ever worked on and I am already peeing myself (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
