Johnson had been a professional surfer until an accident, in which he broke his nose, had his front teeth knocked out and received more than 150 stitches to his mouth and forehead. He learned to play guitar at age 14, but did not seriously pursue a career in the arts until his college years at University of California at Santa Barbara, where he graduated with a degree in film. After graduating, Jack decided to take time out travelling (1997-98) when he co-directed and shot the purist surf film Thicker Than Water to be released later. Making friends with Garrett Dutton of G. Love & Special Sauce, he recorded "Rodeo Clowns" with them to be released on their 1999 album Philadelphonic. This launched his music career and eventually lead to the release of his first album.
Johnson recently appeared on the Sublime tribute album Look at All the Love We Found, and was on Handsome Boy Modeling School's White People, released in 2004. In 2005 he appeared on The Black Eyed Peas album Monkey Business.
In 2004, Johnson founded the Kokua Hawaii Foundation, which is a non-profit organization that supports environmental education in the schools and communities of Hawaii. The Kokua Festival is the Kokua Hawaii Foundation's annual benefit event that brings together environmental organizations, eco-friendly businesses, musicians, artists, teachers, and community leaders to promote environmental awareness in Hawaii.
