Jack Thweatt is a singer/songwriter and worship leader currently based in College Station, Texas. After graduating from Texas A&M University with a degree in aerospace engineering (I know it’s weird), Jack found himself at a crossroads; trying to decide whether to pursue a career in engineering that felt very safe, or pursue his true passion in music. Choosing to step into the unknown, Jack moved to Houston, TX and began working on his debut record You Take Me Back with producer Will Hunt (Spaceway Studios) in Ft. Worth, TX. With the release of his debut record, Jack aims to share all aspects of his journey. From searching for love in “I’m Not Ready” to recognizing that the peace he has can only be found in “Grace”, Jack draws you deeper into the beauty of life through catchy melodies and honest lyrics.
As an artist, Jack has opened for Dave Barnes, Judah and the Lion, Andrew Ripp, Penny and Sparrow, and Dan Layus (Augustana). He has also traveled Texas extensively in support of his debut record, performing at venues like the House of Blues Dallas, Common Grounds in Waco, The Grand Stafford Theater in Bryan, and on many college campuses.
Over the last few years, Jack has also received many opportunities to lead worship all over the United States. Recently he has enjoyed leading for Stumo Conference in Oklahoma City, Pine Cove Camps, and Breakaway Ministries. Currently Jack leads the Breakaway Worship team with whom he writes and produces songs each semester. Jack loves getting to share music of all kinds. Whether performing songs about his life or leading worship for his church, Jack loves the opportunity to share music and it’s gifts with people from all walks of life and in all settings. He has always found encouragement in the lyrics of other writers and hopes that, as he writes about his own life, listeners will be encouraged by his stories of love, hope, and where he finds peace.
