” … We were playing little clubs and we had the most amazing group of people come in that were dead silence, listening to every word we would sing. And we started getting played on the radio, and younger girls started coming and a lot of college girls and stuff. They’d start singing along all the words and I loved it. Cause it was like having back up singers in the band all of sudden, and all these guys trying to shush the girls and I would be like no no dont make the girls be quiet cause its great. And it built and built and eventually became this thing were its kind of part of the show , and it made perfect senses to me, the whole thing feeling natural to me that all of sudden my tunes become sing-a-long tunes like Cat Steevens or The Beatles that I used to sings. And it felt really good. ” – JACK JOHNSON 2005.
I quoted this from a documentary movie about his tour in Greece and Japan. I always easily fall in for a singer that also able to write his own song. Since he write and sing it, the song and the singer are just inseparable, and I think that is very special. That make you think, nothing can replace the original song or theres no one can do better than the artist itself. Another thing that I love about Jack Johnson is that how simple his tunes with humble and familiar lyrics. He just sounds comfortable and honest to me. I can imagine him playing his uke in Hawaii while sitting under the mango tree. That sounds perfect and peaceful.
