It’s a rare treat when a musician who headlines massive festivals decides to perform at a series of smaller venues to give his fans a more intimate experience. Rarer still is a musician who gives the proceeds from ticket sales to a suite of charities across the US and Europe.
On the heels of his headline performance at the Life is Good Festival on September 22, Jack Johnson will celebrate the release of his forthcoming album, “From Here To Now To You,” with a tour through some of the most historic seated theaters in North America. These include Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, Seattle’s Paramount Theatre and the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles. What’s more, the famed singer-songwriter will donate a whopping 100% of his tour profits to charity.
Johnson’s tour will promote the All At Once campaign, which seeks to create global change through individual action. This year’s campaign focuses on engaging fans to take action in support of sustainable local food systems and plastic-free initiatives. Through All At Once, the tour will support more than 75 hand-selected community groups across Europe and North America with direct and matching donations. These include local chapters of Surfrider, Sierra Club, Buy Fresh Buy Local and Slow Food USA as well as San Francisco’s marine debris research non-profit Project Kaisei and Santa Barbara’s School Food Initiative.
In addition, Johnson has teamed up with Reverb to continue paving the way in green touring practices and community engagement initiatives. The crew has said goodbye to backstage single-use water bottles and hello to tour vehicles that run on domestic sustainable biodiesel. Fans can rest assured knowing mass transportation options will be available and that dining options will stock local food, fresh from farm to stage.
Even when he’s not touring, Johnson has long supported environmental and educational initiatives. In 2008, he founded the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation with his wife Kim to promote positive and lasting change within communities by supporting organizations that focus on environmental, art, and music education.
From Here to Now To You will be released September 17 through Johnson’s own Brushfire Records. You can hear the album’s first single, “I Got You,” here. Find tour dates leading up to the release, as well as his post-release intimate theater series, below.
