The Guitar playing Surfing Dude
Jack Hody Johnson was born to Jeff Johnson, a famous surfer in Hawaii, on May 18, 1975. Raised in Oahu, Hawaii, Johnson learnt how to surf at the age of five. At the age of eight, he learnt to play the guitar and wrote his first song at the age of 12. When he turned 17, he was invited to the finals of the Pipeline Masters, one of the most prestigious surfing events on the island. He, however, could not continue after he suffered a serious surfing accident.
After graduation Johnson moved to California to attend the University of California, Santa Barbara, and graduated with a degree in Film Studies. While at UCSB, he joined a band, Soil, and played rhythm guitar. Soil opened for, then relatively unknown acts in the Santa Barbara area, Dave Matthews and Sublime.
Johnson was musically inspired by Jimi Hendrix. As far as songwriting was concerned, he credits Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Bob Marley, The Beatles, Otis Redding, Sublime and A Tribe Called Quest.

In 2013, Johnson’s next album, From Here to Now to You was released. It became Johnson’s third consecutive album to have debuted at No.1 position on Billboard 200.
