Jack Johnson

Jack Johnson was born on May 18, 1975. He hails from northern shores of Oahu island, Hawaii. Because of his geographical origins, and because his father was a celebrity among surfers once, Jack is one of few performers who often dabbles in a rather niche genre of surf rock. Besides this, he also works in soft rock, acoustic and folk rock. After he left his home island, he relocated to Santa Barbara, California, where he entered university and graduated in 1997. His first success in music came when he wrote and sung the song “Rodeo Clowns” for “Philadelphonic”, G. Love’s album. Around this time, he directed a few movies – “Thicker Than Water” and “The September Sessions”, for which he also created soundtracks. He even tried himself as actor, getting a role in “A Brokedown Melody” movie. Two full albums came within short time, “Brushfire Fairytales” in 2001 and “On and On” in 2003. Latter was recorded back at his home island Oahu, and was released though his record label based in L.A., which adopted the image of most eco-friendly label in business, using only solar power. 2006 was the year for soundtrack to “Curious George” cartoon, which became the first soundtrack album since “Pocahontas” to get first spot at Billboard’s 200. Since then Jack continues to work as most eco-friendly performer, writing and creating environmentally aware content.
