Jack Johnson was born 18th May 1975 and is from Hawaii, United States.
After a brief stint of following in his father’s footsteps of surfing, and suffering a bad accident; the Hawaiian born singer-songwriter and guitar player pursued a music career and began song writing at the tender age of 12.
It was not until early 2000 that Jack Johnson got his first big break in the music industry, with his contribution to alternative rock band G Love’s album. He released his debut album ‘Brushfire Fairytales’ in 2001 which achieved gold status in the United Kingdom and platinum in the United States of America.
During the making of his first album, Jack Johnson forged relationships with musicians Adam Topol, Merlo Podlewski and Mario Caldato Junior (on production) who he worked with on his second studio album ‘On and On’.
It took another four years until Jack Johnson returned with his soon to-be-band, and recorded his third studio release’ In Between Dreams’ in 2005. As well as working on studio releases, Jack Johnson produced the film soundtrack ‘Sing-A-Longs and Lullabies’ for the film Curious George, which topped the US Billboard Chart and was commercially successful across the globe.
Throughout the 2000s Jack Johnson performed at the Hawaiian charity festival Kokua Festivals, which resulted in a live album ‘Best of Kokua Festival’, and also a DVD of performances from the Kokua Festival 2004/2005.
Jack Johnson worked on his fifth studio release ‘To the Sea’ which contained the singles “You and Your Heart” and “At or With Me”. ‘To the Sea’ proved to be highly successful, with Jack Johnson’s signature folk rock and soft rock sound cementing him into the charts.
Jack Johnson tickets for his ‘To the Sea tour’ were available for his O2 Arena show on 30th June 2010, 26th June 2010 at the Eden Sessions in Cornwall and Glastonbury, which proved popular with his UK fan-base.
In 2012, the singer-songwriter toured Hawaii on a seven- show acoustic tour, and was honoured to perform for the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet and the Nobel Peace Laureate Tenzin Gyatso.
A year later, a Jack Johnson tour 2013 UK was announced, making it the first time in two years that the singer-songwriter would perform in the UK.
