Jack Johnson

Musician


Jack Johnson, singer-songwriter, filmmaker and surfer, is probably best known for the music of his albums, Brushfire Fairytales (2001) and In Between Dreams (2005) which he released on his own record label, Brushfire Records. While a Film Studies major at UCSB he began pursuing his two dreams: songwriting and documentary surf films. In 1995 (while still in college) Johnson was in the band Soil that opened for the Dave Matthews Band and Sublime at the Santa Barbara Bowl and in 2002, Johnson produced a 16mm surf documentary, September Sessions. Most recently, he created the soundtrack for Curious George (2006) which rose to #1 in the charts and featured the song “Upside Down.”
