His first release as Jack Parow was the Bring en Braai EP which he recorded on his home PC, wrote onto a CD, photocopied the album covers at the library and personally dropped off at people’s houses, before Cooler as Ekke catapulted him to success,
Jack Parow released his debut self-titled full-length album in 2010. It went platinum within a year and his music video for Cooler as Ekke was the first Afrikaans music video to strike a million views on YouTube. His second album, Eksie Ou reached Gold status within four months of its release.

He has performed in Russia, England, Belgium, Hong Kong and the USA and has toured the Netherlands so often, garnering such a massive following that it led to his own biennial festival in Utrecht called PAROWFEST.
