Ever wondered what ‘Guitar-driven Enthusiastic Pop-Rock Cowboy Storytelling Music’ sounds like?
Well, now you wonder, right?
That’s exactly what the upcoming singer and songwriter Jean Nolan does – he takes his audience on a musical journey of hopes, dreams and the confidence of love. ‘The concerts are about leaving your every day life at the entrance and getting inspired, energized, and encouraged to be an active part of the experience’, Jean says.

His every day life has changed when he, along with producer Andi Frei, recorded his self written debut Album ‘Born Ready’, which was released in June, 2010.
In 2010, the AUSTRAIN NEWCOMER AWARD, one of Europes most respected Newcomer Awards, has been given to Jean after putting the 2500+ crowd at the price giving ceremony into the sing-along mode.

Critics call him a ‘good observer, lead by his instincts, who transports real feelings and emotions through his songs’.
Christian Lehner, former Austrian National Radio host says Jean Nolan could be the first Austrian Act in a long time to make it big time in the international music business.

His first single ‘Lottery’, a song about a lottery winner, was picked up by the Austrian Lottery Company and promoted nationwide through their website and commercials.
The follow-up single Born Ready made into the heavy rotation as well and received a lot of attention among industry insiders and fans.
When asked what musical preferences future fans might have, Jean says, ‘Love, Hope, Enthusiasm…and if you like Keith Urban the odds are on my side.’
Born ins Slovenia and growing up in Austria still doesn’t make Jean an European, ‘I have a heart of maple ever since my first trip to Canada’, he says with a smile, 'Honestly, I'm a citizen of the earth, home is where my family is.' Jean is currently promoting his Debut Album Born Ready and connecting with audiences who might like his Guitar Driven Enthusiastic Pop-Rock Cowboy Storytelling Music…

Lyrics

You Will Have It All

Written By: Jean Nolan

Take my hand, come on let's go home
Hold on tight, we might hit a storm
The purple lights cover up the skies
the childish blue smiles up from your eyes
you make me laugh when everything else seems grey
oh my son, you can count on me on your way
A new morning's born, let's get dressed for the day
and you start it all with a smile and a kiss for me
I'll give you all I'll ever have to give
and I thank the lord for this greatest gift
From time to time you might fall
don't you worry my boy
you will have it all
You will have it, you will have it all
Hold your head up, enjoy every moment
don't worry too much, you might loose what you've just earned
Listen to the voice inside of you
It'll always tell, tell you what to do
From time to time you might fall
But don't you worry my boy
you will have it all
you will have it all
Take my hand, come on let's go home

I Still Feel

Written By: Jean Nolan

Turn around, look who's here
haven't seen in a long time, long long long time
I guess we've changed, things are clear
oh brother now we're eye to eye, eye to eye
remember then, back then, different things were on our mind
we were one of a kind
And I still feel, feel, there's so much left of me still unknown
and I still feel, feel, there's a blockade in myself that needs to be undone
Turn around, look who's here, haven't seen in a long time, long long long time
you're like a mirror, what I see, is something that I just dislike, just dislike
And I still feel, feel, there's so much left of me still unknown
and I still feel, feel, there's a blockade in myself that needs to be undone
And I still feel, feel, there's so much left of me still unknown
and I still feel, feel, there's a blockade in myself that needs to be undone

Born Ready

Written By: Jean Nolan

Hold me up, hold me tight
I was born ready, ready to fly
Down to earth, I shall always be
With you by my side, nothing else I need

City lights are currently torturing me,
Yeah the country side, that's where I wanna be
Wide so wide as the river flows
I see myself slowly riding along

I was born ready, born ready, born ready
I was born ready, born ready, born ready
I was born ready, born ready, ready to fly

An old man looks friendly up to the skies
Oh he can see something
I can't yet see thru my eyes
His peaceful look makes me cry
He was born ready, ready to die

He was born ready, born ready, born ready
He was born ready, born ready, born ready
He was born ready, born ready, ready to die

He was born ready, born ready, born ready
he was born ready, born ready born ready,
He was born ready, born ready, ready to fly

I see those eyes that surround me
Are they aware that, aware that
They were born, they were born ready

They were born ready, born ready, born ready
They were born ready, born ready, born ready,
They were born ready, born ready, ready to fly

They were born ready, born ready, born ready
They were born ready, born ready, born ready,
They were born ready, born ready, ready to fly

I grab my hat, eight eyes are with me
Where the river flows us, I guess we will see

We were born ready, born ready, born ready
You were born ready, born ready, born ready,
I was born ready, born ready, ready to fly

We were born ready, born ready, born ready
You were born ready, born ready, born ready,
I was born ready, born ready, ready to fly

Lottery

Written By: Jean Nolan

It was the strangest of all mornings
When I woke up from a dream
In the shadows of my eyes
Something beautiful I’ve seen
With some change left in my wallet
And some numbers in my head
I went to buy a lottery ticket
That’s exactly what I did
The last coins left my hands
And then guess what happened
| Well I stumbled through the kitchen
And I fell down on the floor
Just that very same second
My wife opened the door
We won the lottery oh yeah
We won the lottery
The door hit my head
It still hurts pretty bad
We won the lottery

As I got back on my feet
A little dizzy I’d still feel
My wife looked at the ticket
She said babe is this for real
We won the lottery, oh yeah
We won the lottery
We had a hard time paying the bills
Now we feel the money thrills
We won the lottery
Well there’s no time for waiting
Gotta buy me a new car
10 handbags for my wife
And for my daughter a guitar
My son wants a sports car
My other daughter well she dreams
Of being on the cover of the fashion magazines
We won the lottery, oh yeah
We won the lottery, we won the lottery
Got a morning filled with laughter
Got a cup of coffee
Got a pocket full of fame
And a lot of money
We won the lottery, oh yeah
We won the lottery
We had a hard time paying the bills
Now we feel the money thrills
We won the lottery, we won the lottery
We won the lottery, we won the lottery

American Too

Written By: Jean Nolan

I was born in a small country, in the Capitol City
Red stars all around, and the girls were pretty
Doctor told my mother, well we better start early
This boys life is gonna be one big journey

Today I'm standing here and I'm looking at you
And I'm feeling like-
An American too

The smell of freedom and the star spangled banner
Everything's allowed, thought that's the American manner
I painted a picture, right there in my head
Of life saving cowboys and cool men in black

Today I'm standing here and I'm looking at you
And I'm feeling like-
An American too

Full of hopes, full of dreams
Everything's possible that's how it seems
And you could live in Katmandu
And still feel like, still feel like
An American too

I've travelled the world, people I've seen
To many different countries I've already been
In the slums of Bangkok I met this kid
He said I wanna be Michael Knight jumping with KITT

And I said to this boy, I'm just like you
Cause I'm feeling like
An American too

Full of hopes, full of dreams
Everything's possible that's how it seems
And you could live in Katmandu

And still feel like, still feel like
An American too

I've landed in Cinci went on to Kentucky
I've seen the big apple, have heard of Milwaukee
I was sweating in Orlando, in Miami too
In Boston I had Lobster, I guess that's what you do

Today I'm standing here and I'm singing to you
I'm feeling like-
An American too

Full of hopes, full of dreams
Everything's possible that's how it seems
And you could live in Katmandu
And still feel like, still feel like
An American too
An American Too
An American Too
An American Too

Crazy

Written By: Jean Nolan

Well I'm letting all go I'm just spinning around, I'm letting all the feelings flow
There's not a thought on my mind that could distract me, there's no control
We walk and we talk and we kiss all night long, yeah we sit under the stars and baby we tell it all
we go crazy, that's what we do, we go crazy, that's what I'm for you
There's a place down at the corner, that we both love going to
where we drink our favourite latté, watch the people come and go
and you smile and you say I got something on my lip
Well I'm reaching for a napkin but then you're kissing it away
we go crazy, that's what we do, we go crazy, that's what I'm for you
We go crazy and the years are passing by, we go crazy living love
and you smile and you say this is what you wanna do, you wanna be with me forever, I wanna be with you too, and we laugh and we talk and we kiss all night long
we sit under the stars and we tell it all
we go crazy, that's what we do, we go crazy, that's what I'm for you
We go crazy and the years are passing by, we go crazy living love
living love, living love, living love
crazy baby, crazy baby, we go crazy baby, crazy baby,
we go crazy, that's what we do, we go crazy, that's what I'm for you
We go crazy and the years are passing by, crazy baby,crazy
