Musician, actor, record producer, documentary filmmaker and a former professional surfer are all titles attributed to Jack Johnson, who will perform at Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls on June 3!
Johnson’s smooth baritone vocal and laid back acoustic songwriting, coupled with his surfer image, has made his music popular with backpackers relaxing on rustic beaches around the world. He occasionally uses reggae, hip-hop, and soca singing styles in his music. Sometimes he uses electric instruments as well as acoustic instruments to add variety to his songs or to match the upbeat tune to the positive lyrics.
Johnson is known primarily for his work in the soft rock and acoustic genres. In 2001, he achieved commercial success after the release of his debut album, ‘Brushfire Fairytales.’ The record spawned fan favorites including “Bubble Toes” and “Flake.”
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 his most recent effort, ‘From Here to Now to You’ in 2013. Johnson’s ‘In Between Dreams’ album peaked at number 2 on the chart in 2005 and again in 2013.
Johnson is active in the ecology and sustainability movement, often with an ocean-centric focus. Johnson and wife Kim created the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation and the Kōkua Hawaii Foundation. In 2008 Johnson adopted the concept of greening (reduce and reuse), and donated 100% of the proceeds of the Sleep Through the Static tour to the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation. Similarly, the proceeds from 2010 ‘To the Sea’ album tour went to All At Once, a Johnson backed collaborative of greening charities promoting fan involvement
