In support of his sixth studio album, From Here To Now To You, Jack played two very intimate acoustic shows where he performed songs from his new record for the first time last week at London’s Tabernacle in Notting Hill and Monday night at New York City’s Allen Room at Lincoln Center overlooking Central Park. Along with the new songs, Jack also played some classics. At the New York show when Jack played "Home," he explained to the crowd, "I've realized home is anywhere your family is. Tonight, this is our home." Thanks to all who came out to the shows and with the announcement of Jack’s North American and European Fall tour, we hope to see more of you this fall.

My friend Emmett and I made this video on an old wind up 16mm camera that we used to shoot our old surf films on. With our friend Dave manning the camera, we drove around Oahu and made it up as we went. It was a fun day and hopefully that translates in the video.” - Jack
Jack’s official video for the first single “I Got You” off his new record From Here To Now To You will premiere this week on Huffington Post! The video was shot around Oahu by cinematographer Dave Homcy and directed by Emmett Malloy. Keep your eyes peeled and be sure to sign up for Jack’s socials for all the details.
While in NYC last weekend, Jack joined Rockaway neighbors and community partners to build a community garden and work on improvements at the smallwater Community Center and Garden. Volunteers built garden beds, planted apple trees and helped to transform the vacant lot into an educational garden and multi-use space for the community. The smallwater Garden will be a source of local fresh produce and will provide a sustainable space for educational workshops and gatherings. Programming will include classes on nutrition, cooking, gardening, and environmental education.
"It's always amazing to see how fast you can build a garden with so many helping hands. It's exciting to see the progress at the Rockaway beach smallwater Community Garden." - Jack
The volunteer event represents a culmination of support from local community groups including Waves for Water, as well as ioby and Green Guerillas, which Johnson has supported over the years through his All At Once community when touring brings him through New York.
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Jack and his wife Kim made personal donations to local relief efforts and dug in to support the smallwater garden project. Now you can help too! Through his Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation, donations made to smallwater through ioby will be matched until the project is fully funded.
“Johnson and his band overcame tough odds and thorny logistics to headline the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival on Saturday night, replacing late cancellation Mumford & Sons. Despite the short notice, they produced a set filled with good humor, mellow vibes and a ton of hits.” - Associated Press
After a last minute cancellation Jack and the band stepped up to the plate and played a headline set in place of Mumford & Sons this past weekend at Bonnaroo. The call came in late Thursday night from Bonnaroo asking if Jack and the band would help out because of a last minute cancellation from Mumford & Sons due to their bassist Ted Dwayne who is recovering from surgery to remove a blood clot from his brain. With some clever work from his tour manager and management team, Jack was able to get all the band together, rent stage equipment and rehearse in less than 48 hours to play the first set together since last years Farm Aid.
The night was complete with some classic sing-a-longs, Jack’s newest single, “I Got You”, a new ditty called “Bonnaroo”, and of course a cover by Mumford & Sons, “The Cave”. And if the night hadn’t already gone great, right as Jack finished his encore solo, the skyline was filled with a firework show to wrap up yet another beautiful Tennessee night. Thanks Bonnaroo and get well soon Ted!
