Jonas Noack writes lyric-driven folk songs with influences that range from traditional music to more contemporary artists like Leonard Cohen, James McMurtry or Anna Tivel. Intricate guitar playing and memorable vocals combine to support carefully crafted lyrics that touch a broad range of topics, from the poetry he finds in everyday moments to far-reaching stories of loss and mortality.
Born in Freiburg, Germany, Jonas Noack spent most of his childhood in a small village in France, where he grew up speaking German and French. It wasn’t until he stumbled upon the English and American folk traditions in his early twenties that he started to seriously devote himself to writing songs in English, which had become his third language. While making his first steps on open stages in Frankfurt, where he had moved to study English literature, home-recorded demos of his own songs brought him the attention of several established songwriters, who invited him to try his songs in front of their own audiences. Since then he has shared the stage with a number of national and international acts, has played everything from small living rooms to large festival stages, and his touring has taken him far as the Czech Republic and Hungary. His first EP, "The First Few Songs", was released on the German label Klangkantine on the July 10th 2020.
