Synopsis:

Where so many rock biographies tell the same story, Jack Johnson is a true exception. Hawaii's own Grammy-nominated musician was carving out a growing reputation as a professional surfer when an accident left him too injured to compete at the highest level. Johnson switched to making surf movies but gradually found his voice as a singer-songwriter. Initially a cult amongst surfers, he has now crossed over to the mainstream, acclaimed as a 'Dylan for the 21st Century', his third album, 2005's "In Between Dreams", sold 800,000 copies in the UK alone and he has just picked up a BRIT award for International Breakthrough Act. Acclaimed George Harrison biographer Marc Shapiro has conducted hours of new interviews with those who knew Johnson both as a surfer and a musician, to produce a compelling portrait of one of rock's most original new stars.
