It’s been nearly 3 years since the release of To The Sea... and the wait is over! Jack and the band have spent the last few weeks working on a new album in the Mango Tree studio with Mario Caldato (producer of On and On and In Between Dreams). Stay tuned for more exciting news.
To celebrate Earth Day 2013, the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation will match up to $25,000 in donations to “green” classroom projects on DonorsChoose.org, an online charity that makes it easy to support public school students in need. Projects qualifying for this offer focus on reducing waste and single-use plastics in schools and communities across the country.
The Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation was founded by Jack and Kim Johnson to support environmental, art, and music education worldwide. Leading up to Earth Day, the Foundation aims to leverage community support for classroom projects, and to encourage environmental stewardship through youth activities focused on recycling, waste reduction, and creative “upcycling” and plastic-free initiatives.
The Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation will fund 50% of qualifying waste reduction and plastic-free projects, but only if people like you help contribute the rest. The project started on April 11, every donation made to these classrooms will have double the impact! Learn more and view selected classroom projects at DonorsChoose.org/EarthDay2013.
Late last year, Jack spent a few days at the Brushfire Record’s Studio, the Solar Powered Plastic Plant, producing a new EP for good friend and label mate G. Love.
“We had a great couple days recording some solo acoustic tracks and Jack lent his hand and voice to a couple. We all really dug this track "Early Risin". - G. Love
The EP was available exclusively on Record Store Day on 10" VInyl and has been limited to 2000 pieces. You can hear “Early Rising”, one of 6 tracks over at rollingstone.com here, and if there are any copies left you can pick one up at a participating Record Store Day store near you.
