Over the last years we had just a few chances to see Jack Johnson live in Germany. After his record „From Here To Now To You“ he decided not to go on a proper tour but devoted most of his time to environmental issues. Together with his wife he manages the Kokua Hawaii foundation and the Johnson Ohana foundation which combine educational activities, sustainability development, support of art. Furthermore he went on a sailing trip through the northern Atlantic with the organization „5 Gyres“ that fights the plastic waste in the oceans. During that trip the documentation „The Smog Of The Sea“ was produced and another result was Jack Johnson's returned to songwriting. He recently stated in an interview that being on the ocean with no mobile phone, TV, internet or other distractions quickened his writing process. These writing sessions laid the foundation for his acclaimed seventh record „All The Light Above It Too“, which was released a few months ago. The album is back to basics, 10 songs with simple productions. They have that campfire vibe of his early works that made him popular, first in the surfer community and then beyond.
We can look forward to a beautiful evening under the stars with Jack Johnson in Berlin!
