About Jack JohnsonHaving given up a career as a professional surfer to take up his own brand of acoustic rock music, Jack Johnson has proved equally successful in his second career of choice, and now hosts an annual musical event in Hawaii, the charitable Kokua Hawaii Foundation. His infamously difficult to come by concert tickets and adoring fans come off the back of five studio albums, all of which achieved substantial studio success. These include Sing Along Songs - the soundtrack to the movie Curious George, which Johnson wrote in its entirety, and Sleep Through the Static, his most recent album, which reached number one in both the UK and the US. Singles like Better Together, Banana Pancakes and Sitting, Waiting, Wishing have become synonymous with the South East Asian traveler scene. Wide-ranging influences include Bob Dylan and heavy punk rockers Fugazi.
