Jack Johnson

Mr. Johnson grew up on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii and started playing guitar at the age of 14. Before releasing albums on Universal Records, he became a professional surfer who was sponsored by Quiksilver. Jack studied Film at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), during which time he began writing songs as well as making documentary surf films. While Jack was in college at UCSB, he was in a band called "Soil". He played backup guitar for "Soil" and opened for Dave Matthews Band and Sublime in 1995 at the Santa Barbara Bowl. His demo recordings found fans in the ears of new friends such as Ben Harper and Garrett Dutton of "G. Love" & Special Sauce. After the great success of Jack's first studio album, he went on to work with Mario Caldato Jr. and Ben Stiller in subsequent musical and video projects.
