'From Here To Now To You', is not only #1 on the album charts it is also paving the way for responsible CD production and packaging. The album was recorded using 100% solar energy; printed on 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper, and carries the 1% For The Planet logo.

For his sold out fall tour of historical theaters, Johnson and his production team, alongside Reverb, continues to pave the way in green touring practices and community engagement initiatives. Tour vehicles will be fueled by domestic sustainable biodiesel wherever possible, concertgoers will be offered mass transportation options, waste reduction measures will be expanded and single-use disposable water bottles will continue to be eliminated backstage. In addition the tour will source local food from "farm to stage", produce and offer eco-friendly merchandise, provide free water refill stations and invest in community based carbon offset projects. As with all of his tours since 2008, Johnson will donate 100% of his tour profits to charity.

'From Here To Now To You' was recorded in Hawaii at Johnson's Mango Tree Studio and produced by Mario Caldato, Jr. who produced Johnson's biggest selling album, 'In Between Dreams', as well as albums by Beastie Boys, Super Furry Animals, Seu Jorge and more.  The album also marks a reunion with good friend and fellow musician Ben Harper who lends his talents of vocals and Weisenbborn slide guitar for a song. The album's first single, "I Got You" was #1 most added at AAA radio. Entertainment Weekly said, "Johnson's best, most beguiling album yet."
