DREAMY JACK JOHNSON + BAHAMAS SET TO PLAY KINGS PARK BOTANIC GARDEN
Jack Johnson’s songwriting over the years has been a rare balance of quiet introspection and thoughtful observation. Born and raised in Hawaii where he grew up surfing and playing guitar, Johnson released his debut album Brushfire Fairytales in 2001. Since then he has released another six studio and two live albums that have sold in excess of 25 million copies worldwide. In Australia he has sold 1.2 million albums and had four albums at #1 including 2005’s hit, In Between Dreams.
All The Light Above It Too is the seventh studio album for the multi-platinum- selling singer/songwriter and the follow-up to 2013’s From Here to Now to You. This latest offering finds Johnson returning to the stripped-back, homegrown feel of the four-track recordings that launched his career more than 17 years ago. While his longtime bandmates Adam Topol (drums), Merlo Podlewski (bass) and Zach Gill (piano) accompanied him on several tracks, Johnson handled most of the instrumentation on his own, sculpting many of the songs around his graceful guitar performance.
Jack Johnson and his Brushfire Records label and touring crew have been leaders in the greening of the music industry. Johnson and his production team, alongside Reverb, will continue to pave the way in green touring practices with extensive sustainability programs at every show on the tour. On the 2017 tour, additional greening actions include sourcing sustainable biodiesel for tour vehicles, producing up-cycled and eco-friendly merchandise and expanding waste reduction, composting and recycling. Through Johnson’s All At Once campaign, the Summer Tour will support a number of non-profit partners and will engage fans to take action in support of sustainable local food systems and plastic free initiatives. Fans can visit these partners in the Village Green and participate in the greening actions at each show. Leading up to each show our All At Once partner Tangaroa Blue will be hosting volunteer beach clean- ups in each concert city.
Last here in 2013, Jack Johnson will be performing at Perth’s stunning Kings Park & Botanic Garden. Fans can expect to hear all of the classics plus more from his new album! Joining Johnson in Australia will be special guest and his own Brushfire Records labelmate, Bahamas.
