Brushfire Records was born in 2002 at The Mango Tree studio in Hawaii when Jack Johnson along with longtime friend Emmett Malloy, wanted to create their own record label to put out the soundtracks for surf films they had been making under The Moonshine Conspiracy banner. The Moonshine Conspiracy, a surf film collaborative now known as Woodshed Films was formed by Jack Johnson, Emmett Malloy and Chris Malloy in 1998 during the creation of their renowned surf film Thicker Than Water. Brushfire Records not only gave them the opportunity to release music from their surf films but to release Jack’s music as well as connect and support other musicians, artists and friends who’s work they liked and respected.
In its ten years, Brushfire has since moved to Los Angeles where they have custom-built their own solar powered studio, The Solar Powered Plastic Plant, while continuing to release new music and films.
