Jack Johnson
Jack Johnson (born 1975) is an American singer-songwriter, known primarily for his work in the soft rock and acoustic genres. Born on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, Johnson started out as a surfer, making the finals of the Pipeline Masters competition at the age of 17, but his career was cut short by an accident. In 2001, he achieved commercial success after the release of his debut album, Brushfire Fairytales. Johnson has reached number one on the Billboard 200 chart with his albums Sing-A-Longs and Lullabies for the Film Curious George in 2006, Sleep Through the Static in 2008, To the Sea in 2010 and From Here to Now to You in 2013. His album In Between Dreams peaked at number two on the chart in 2005 and again in 2013. Johnson is also active in environmentalism and sustainability, often with a focus on the world's oceans.
