Jack and Kitty Norton are Emmy Award winning creative artists. Married high school sweethearts, the duo runs a production and publishing company based in Minnesota. They document their everyday life as working artists in a quirky YouTube vlog series (The Jack and Kitty Vlog) which launched in 2022.

Four original songs written and performed by Jack and Kitty Norton were featured in the Oscar nominated Willem Dafoe film The Florida Project (A24) by director Sean Baker (Tangerine) which debuted at the 49th edition of Cannes Directors’ Fortnight as part of the Cannes Film Festival. The duo's music was also featured in Sean Baker's Kenzo fashion film Snowbird which starred supermodel Abbey Lee.

Quirky, funny and downright bizarre, Jack and Kitty's Jug Band Hokum: A Documentary Series follows the eccentric lives of jug band musicians competing to win a broken waffle iron in the 33rd Annual Minneapolis Battle of the Jug Bands. The web series features appearances by: Garrison Keillor, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Charlie Parr, Dom Flemons of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Baby Gramps and more.

Early in their filmmaking career, Jack and Kitty co-created, co-directed, co-wrote and co-starred in The Zinghoppers Show, a children’s television series which earned six regional Emmy Award nominations for Nashville Public Television and was broadcast on over 150 PBS member stations nationwide and in 175 countries on the AFN Family Channel and on Trinity Broadcast Network.

Kitty's 2018 memoir, The Unbecoming, was on several bestseller lists for four weeks. The niece of reggae legend Bunny Wailer (of Bob Marley and the Wailers fame), Kitty had found success while still in high school as a session vocalist at Prince’s Paisley Park Studios, and was signed to a recording contract before she graduated. What looked to be a promising career in pop music was cut short by a debilitating car accident. Bedridden for over a year, the former cheerleader and model had ballooned to 515 pounds. The Unbecoming documents how this disabled, stay-at-home, self-employed, and depressed lady lost 345 pounds…completely naturally: without any gimmicks, surgeries, pills or fad diets.

In 2019, Jack and Kitty Norton published a memoir called Two Stalkers One Goal. In a story stranger than fiction, the inspiring book offers hope and healing for victims of stalking, cyberstalking, narcissistic abuse, gossip and bullying…all with more twists and turns than any Hollywood thriller.

Jack's latest book, Cornstars: Rube Music In Swing Time, is a sweeping overview of American musical entertainment set in the later days of minstrelsy through the early days of television. It was nominated for the 2021 Association for Recorded Sound Collections Awards for Excellence in Historical Recorded Sound Research. He is also the author of the Amazon best selling series Dirty Little Comics, a pictorial history of Tijuana bibles and underground adult comics of the 1920s - 1950s.

During the global pandemic, Kitty turned to writing while seeking a life of healthy solitude. She launched several pen names and began publishing a series of steamy romance and spicy erotica books. Readers responded to her strong, empowered female characters and Kitty's fiction has seen her land on Amazon's Best Selling charts several times...including one sexy title that hit #1!

Today, Jack and Kitty live in rural Minnesota. They enjoy travel, raw vegan food, yoga, pilates, reading, spending time in nature and volunteering at several organizations which promote LGBTQ+ rights.
