Biography

Born and raised on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii, Jack Johnson started playing guitar when he was 14 years old. Shortly after graduating from UC Santa Barbara, Johnson recorded several songs for the low-budget surf movie Thicker Than Water that became a cult hit. The soundtrack’s success eventually led to a record contract and the 2001 release of Johnson’s debut album, Brushfire Fairytales. Several records and millions of album sales have since followed and, in all, Johnson has released six solo albums, the last five of which have all been recorded at his Mango Tree Studio in Hawaii.

In addition to his music, Johnson is a committed supporter of environmental causes. For several years he and his wife Kim organized the Kokua Festival, a fund-raising Earth Day concert that featured a number of headline performers, from Willie Nelson to Eddie Vedder.
