Jack Johnson Net Worth
Jack Johnson net worth: Jack Johnson is an American singer-songwriter, musician, surfer, and filmmaker who has a net worth of $20 million. Johnson is known primarily for his work in the soft rock and acoustic genres. He is perhaps best known for the songs "Sitting, Waiting, Wishing," "Upside Down," and "Flake." Johnson is active in environmentalism and sustainability, often with a focus on oceans.
Early Life: Jack Hody Johnson was born on May 13, 1975, on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. His father is well-known surfer Jeff Johnson. Jack started surfing at five years old and at 17 became the youngest invitee to make the finals at the Pipeline Masters surfing competition, one of surfing's most prestigious competitions, on Oahu's North Shore. One week later, however, his stint as a professional surfer ended when he suffered a surfing accident at the Banzai Pipeline that put more than 150 stitches in his forehead and removed a few of his teeth; this later became the inspiration for the song "Drink the Water." Johnson graduated from Kahuku High School in Oahu. He then studied film and music production at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
While Johnson learned the guitar at the age of 8 and started writing songs at the age of 12, his passion for music grew when he played rhythm guitar for the band Soil in college. In 1994, Zach Gill's band, Django Reinhardt, released a CD that quickly made Django a favorite band of the Isla Vista party scene at UCSB. Django was the rival of Jack Johnson's band Soil, but Gill and Johnson developed a strong friendship, eventually becoming bandmates in later years. While with Soil at UCSB, Johnson opened for relatively unknown (at the time) acts such as Sublime and Dave Matthews with far from sold-out crowds at the venues. He graduated from UCSB in 1997.
Career: Jack Johnson's big break came when he wrote and contributed vocals on the G. Love song "Rodeo Clowns" on the 1999 G. Love and Special Sauce album Philadelphonic. Johnson has been introduced to G. Love by a mutual friend. This song launched Johnson's career.
In the early 2000s, Johnson directed the surf films Thicker Than Water (2000) and The September Sessions (2002), in which he also starred. He did the soundtracks for both movies. He also starred in the 2004 surf film A Brokedown Melody.
Johnson's debut album, Brushfire Fairytales, was released on February 1, 2001. In late February, he joined Ben Harper's Innocent Criminals tour for 23 stops. In early May 2003, Johnson released his second album On and On. It was the first to be recorded at Mango Tree Studios in Johnson's home town of North Shore, Oahu. His third album, In Between Dreams, was released on March 1, 2005. In 2006, Johnson did the soundtrack for the movie Curious George. The soundtrack album, Sing-A-Longs and Lullabies for the Film Curious George, featured Johnson as well as Ben Harper, G. Love, Merlo Podlewski, and Zach Gill. It was the first soundtrack to hit number one on the charts since the Bad Boys II soundtrack in August 2003.
Johnson's fourth studio album, Sleep Through the Static, was recorded using 100% solar energy at the Solar-Powered Plastic Plant studio in Los Angeles. Sleep Through the Static was released on February 1, 2008, and was followed by a world tour. Johnson's fifth album, To the Sea, was released on May 31, 2010. Johnson embarked on a world tour in 2010, playing at a range of venues across the world including Europe, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, the U.S., and Japan.
In June 2013, Jack Johnson performed at the 2013 Bonnaroo Music Festival in Tennessee. In September 2013, Johnson released his sixth studio album, From Here to Now to You. The From Here to Now to You Tour ran from March through September 2014.
In February 2017, Johnson announced a U.S. tour beginning in Chicago at the Huntington Bank Pavilion on Northerly Island on June 1 and ending with two Kōkua Hawai'i Foundation benefit concerts at the Waikiki Shell on August 4 & 5. Also, he revealed plans to release an album in the summer of 2017. He also performed at the 2017 Ohana Fest at Doheny State Beach, Dana Point, California. On September 8, 2017, Jack released his seventh studio album, All the Light Above It Too, and peaked at number 13 on the Billboard chart's "Artist 100."
Personal Life: On July 22, 2000, Johnson married his college girlfriend, Kim. They have three children: two boys and a girl. Johnson lives on the North Shore of the island of Oahu in Hawaii. Both Johnson and his wife have a policy to not talk about or release any intimate information about their children.
He is dedicated to education and environmental causes. In 2008, Johnson and his wife Kim created the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation, a non-profit public charity supporting environmental, art, and music education worldwide. Jack and Kim Johnson also founded the Kokua Hawaii Foundation in 2003. Johnson and his family work hard every year at festivals and concerts alike, to raise money for causes they feel are most important.
Johnson spearheaded the Kōkua Festivals (2004–2008 and 2010). Often occurring around Earth Day, these six years of festivals provided support for the Kōkua Hawai'i Foundation, which is a charitable organization that supports environmental education in the schools and communities of Hawaii. He also participated with Willie Nelson, Jackson Browne, Dave Matthews, Eddie Vedder, and others in the documentary Kōkua 2008: 5 Years of Change (2009), which was aired on the Sundance Channel.
