     Please note that the Johnny Depp Rocks! website gives the utmost respect for Jack Depp and his privacy.  
This page is devoted to his musical pursuits that have either been officially credited, or mentioned by Johnny, Vanessa Paradis, or another trusted friend or family member.  No tabloid mentions, paparazzi photos, or unsubstantiated rumors will be published.

Johnny and Vanessa's children, Lily-Rose and Jack, have grown up surrounded by the music of both parents.  Even from an early age, they have also occasionally contributed to both parents' musical projects, whether it be vocals, instrumentals, or artwork.  In a 2014 interview with the Philippine Inquirer, Johnny said:

“My boy Jack has always been a very talented draftsman. He draws really super- well. He also plays music very well. He’s got a good feel for that. Aside from school plays and things, he hasn’t shown any desire to become an actor. Whew! ... They are both great talents. I wish I could shy them away from it. But the kids are going to make the decisions. It’s what they want to do.”

     In a 2016 interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Johnny mentioned that Jack was starting a punk rock band, and that he was proud of the band's name: Clown Boner.
Naturally, Jack plays guitar.  We will have to wait and see if Clown Boner ever releases any material, officially or on social media.  Jack also enjoys drawing and skateboarding, so the band is only one of his interests at the moment.

     Time will tell what long-term career path Jack will choose, but hopefully, music will always remain a part of his life!

1. Vanessa Paradis: Jackadi
Vocals (uncredited)

Released on the album Divinidylle on September 3, 2007.
     Jack Depp makes his recording debut on the song Jackadi, singing an intro of Popeye The Sailor Man before the song.  While he receives no formal credit on the album, Vanessa speaks about Jack's participation.  From a French interview (rough translation): [Q] "Is it you who hold to this as your son, Jack, come sing "Popeye" in a piece that you have written?" [A] "No, it's him who came. He sang many times. It is a time for us, even if everyone can hear it. It's like a picture. It is for 30 years."

2. Marilyn Manson: You're So Vain
Musician (uncredited)

Released on the album Born Villain on April 15, 2012, and also on the West Of Memphis Soundtrack on January 15, 2013.
     Again, Jack does not get a formal musician credit for the song (while Johnny is credited for drums and guitars).  However, Marilyn discussed Jack's participation in an interview with MTV UK: "Johnny’s son Jack – whose birthday I’m gonna be performing at – was in the room and he actually played on the song too. It’s pretty cool.”  Fan reports believe that Jack played guitar but his exact participation has not been confirmed.

3. Johnny Depp and Bill Carter: Musician tattoo artwork
"Tattoo art by: Jack Depp"

Appeared approximately June of 2012.  Tattoos were done at Southside Tattoo in Austin, TX.
     Jack designed the tattoo of a boy in a baseball cap, playing a bass guitar, that is sported by both Johnny and Bill.  Bill confirmed Jack as the artist on his Facebook page in 2012.  Johnny has said, "
My boy Jack has always been a very talented draftsman" and this is certainly one example!  The tattoo has been included in the design of two Duesenberg guitars: the Duesenberg Johnny Depp Artist Series Signature Guitar introduced in 2014, and a second woodgrain Duesenberg that Johnny played in 2015.

5. Blomst: an experimental film by Misha Brackman

Released on YouTube on May 22, 2016.  Misha Brackman published this short film on YouTube with the description: "this is an experimental short that I made with Wilder Smith, Jack Depp, Dexter Demme, and Zoe Morris, I hope it is entertaining. thank you for watching, constructive criticism is helpful and appreciated."  Set to the song, True Love Will Find You In The End by Daniel Johnston, the film portrays love lost and found again in a brief 1:50.  This film may be regarded as an acting debut of sorts for Jack.
