Jack Johnson was born on the North Shore of Oahu where he grew up like any local kid, surfing the monster waves at Pipeline. And although pro surfing wasn't Jack's dream he was, at 17, the youngest invitee to the most prestigious surfing event in the world, The Pipeline Masters. A near fatal wipe out on one of these monster waves immortalized him and his battered face became an indelible and infamous image in the surfing world.
College and film school was next. He pursued his interest in filmmaking and soon became a surf film director, photographer, producer and score composer. The film, "Thicker Than Water," which he made with the Malloy Brothers, won The Surfer Magazine Poll award for best film of the year. Jack composed the score and was cinematographer.
Fellow surfer Garrett Dutton, better known as G. Love of G. Love and Special Sauce, heard one of Johnson's songs and later recorded "Rodeo Clown" on his 1999 CD, "Philadelphonic." He also had Jack Johnson perform on the track.
Soon afterward, J.P. Plunier, another fellow surfer who is better known as the producer of Ben Harper's early albums, signed Jack Johnson to Enjoy Records, which he co-owns, and released "Brushfire Fairytales."
Jack's sophomore effort "On and On" appeared in May 2003. Stateside dates with Ben Harper followed in June and July. A third album, "In Between Dreams" arrived in March 2005.
