Jack Johnson grew up surfing and playing guitar on the North Shore of Oahu. He released his first album Brushfire Fairytales in 2001 and since then has released 5 more studio albums and 2 live albums that have sold over 20 million copies worldwide. With his success, Johnson has always tried to take the spotlight and shine it on issues important to him. In 2003, Jack Johnson released On and On and, with his wife Kim, founded the Kokua Hawaii Foundation and Kokua Festival to support environmental education in Hawaii's schools and communities. Johnson, his Brushfire Records label, and his touring crew have been leaders in the greening of the music industry in all areas of tour production and album packaging. In 2004, Johnson became the 50th member of 1% For The Planet and Johnson's 2005 release of In Between Dreams became the first album to carry the 1% label. In 2008, Johnson released Sleep Through the Static, recorded in his solar-powered studio, and donated 100% of his tour profits to establish the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation, an endowment founded by Jack and Kim Johnson to support environmental, art and music education worldwide. En Concert, a live album released in 2009, chronicles the Sleep Through The Static tour and also benefits Johnson’s foundations. In 2010 Johnson released To The Sea, and travelled the world donating 100% of his tour profits to charity once again. In 2012, Brushfire Records released Jack Johnson and Friends – Best of Kokua Festival, a 13-track compilation of live performances including legendary musicians Willie Nelson, Jackson Browne, Eddie Vedder, Ben Harper, Dave Mathews, Ziggy Marley and more, to benefit the Kokua Hawaii Foundation. In September 2013 Johnson will release his 6th studio album, From Here To Now To You, and will embark on an international tour of Europe and North America, in which the profits will support plastic-free initiatives and sustainable local food through Johnson’s All At Once network. The total of these album and tour profit donations, along with Johnson’s personal charitable activities, have resulted in over $25 million donated to charity since 2001.
