At a time when everyone was struggling to survive and keep moving, Jack Fulton Smith and his band, Idolising Nova, were agitated like the rest of the world. Seeing that moping around and waiting hopelessly was not doing them any good, Jack urged his band members to get back to work and put out more music. Between March and the end of 2020, Idolising Nova released three singles that have enjoyed massive airplay on streaming platforms, national radio, and television stations. They also released a few music videos on YouTube, with each video amassing more than 100,000 views.
Jack Fulton Smith is a solution-oriented person with big dreams for his music career. As the lead singer of Idolising Nova, he is always looking for ways to stay in the spotlight and be connected to their fans. Similar to how he helped Idolising Nova stay buzzing throughout 2020, he also worked at Stilton Butchers, a family-run business, as the digital marketing expert. He was pivotal in taking the business, which has existed since 1978, to a digital platform and establishing it as one of the biggest online butchers in the United Kingdom over the past year.
As part of Jack’s efforts to keep his fans entertained, he and his band did some Instagram Live question and answer sessions, live sessions playing acoustic versions of their songs, giveaway contests, and lockdown photoshoots via Facetime, among other fun, engaging activities. In Jack’s words, “Keeping active was the best decision we’ve ever made. Our streaming numbers rocketed, our music was played on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ with millions of viewers resulting in thousands of Shazam’s, and we topped radio charts in Qatar. This has resulted in record labels contacting us and also a few major label bands offering us support slots on their next tours when live shows can safely recommence.”
With how things turned out for Jack, his brand, and other endeavors, he is now a strong proponent of believing strongly in something. “Truly believing in something is very special, and if you can get people interested, invested, and talking about the thing you believe in, the sky is your limit, and you can achieve great things.” Now, he has his sights set on inspiring young people through music and taking on bigger challenges no matter the seeming limitations that may exist.
Jack Fulton Smith is highly passionate about Idolising Nova as he takes all the major work upon himself. He does the writing of music with the other band members as well as the day-to-day management. He’s also actively looking for opportunities for the band to get a major record deal. Jack is the type of person who never waits for things to happen but rather goes out to make the things he wants happen. One interesting thing about Jack Fulton Smith is that Idolising Nova is his first musical experience. He never studied music or wrote music before joining the band. All his music experience came from singing to songs in the car like every other person. Now, turning full circle from the norm by achieving success despite a lockdown in the world, Jack Fulton Smith knows that there are no limits to getting things done if a person is determined. He hopes to inspire more people in the coming years and take Idolizing Nova to even greater heights as a band.
