"Jack Johnson

Before Jack Johnson perfected his rock star ways, he was a champion surfer on the professional route, with a sponsorship with Quiksilver. It was a life that was second nature for the Hawaiian native, for he began chasing waves as a toddler, and by the time he was 17, he was an outstanding athlete on the pipeline. However, Johnson was also testing his other creative outlets -- one being film and the other being music. It was during his college years as a film student at University of California at Santa Barbara when Johnson began writing songs. He and old mates, Chris Malloy and Emmett Malloy, produced a surf cinema documentary entitled Thicker Than Water, in turn spotlighting Johnson as a talented cinematographer as well as a burgeoning singer/songwriter. His peers in and around the surf circuit praised his work, and Thicker Than Water received props in Surfer Magazine for Video of the Year during 2000. The follow-up surf flick The September Sessions also earned the Adobe Highlight Award at the ESPN Film Festival that same year.

Still, Johnson steered away from a blossoming pro sports career and stuck with music -- something that would soon earn him additional honors. G. Love & Special Sauce quickly took notice to Johnson's lazy blues stylings, which also molded folk and hip-hop for a modern rock twist, and included Johnson on ""Rodeo Clowns"" from G. Love's 1999 release, Philadelphonic. Johnson's four-track demo also caught the ears of Ben Harper's right hand man, J.P. Plunier. This was surely mind-blowing for Johnson, for Harper's college rock mainstay Fight for Your Mind was one of his favorites and remained an inspiration. Aside from Plunier's production work, Harper also added his lap steel guitar work on Jack Johnson's sultry debut, Brushfire Fairytales (Enjoy Records) in winter 2001. Two co-headlining tours followed throughout spring and summer 2002; Johnson's sophomore effort On and

Faced with the task of giving a voice to a central character that does not speak, Universal Pictures turned to Jack Johnson to craft songs that could provide a voice for Curious George. As a new father, it presented an opportunity to make an album for parents and children. Presented with early animations and the story line, Jack crafted new songs that captured the emotions of Curious George as he leaves the jungle to follow the Man with the Yellow Hat. He also turned to friends Ben Harper, G. Love and Matt Costa to contribute songs that might bridge the gap between parent and child.

Joined on the record by his band (Adam Topol, Merlo Podlewski, and Zach Gill) Jack duets with 3 of the other songwriters (Ben Harper, G. Love and Matt Costa), and does a cover of the White Stripes' "We're Going to be Friends". Parents who watched Schoolhouse Rock on Saturday mornings when they were children will recognize Jack's take on the classic "Three is a Magic Number" reinterpreted with "The 3 R's" as a call to protect the environment and Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. "Sing-A-Longs and Lullabies" feels like so much more than your standard "Official Soundtrack" due to its unified creative vision. While the songs have a universal appeal, their themes speak to a child's experience (or in this case, a curious monkey's experience) of the world.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.70)
- 3 stars out of 5 -- "Jack Johnson keeps his regular-dude croon friendly and extra-bright on this tidy, quietly pretty soundtrack..."

Q (p.118)
- Ranked #56 in Q Magazine's "100 Greatest Albums of 2006."

Uncut (p.91)
- 3 stars out of 5 -- "There's still plenty of mellowed-out strum, but 'Broken' is refreshingly robust, as is the handclaps-and-piano of 'Sharing Song'."
