In Music
LOVERS ROCK: Sammy Johnson brings a healthy dose of roots, rocksteady, and lover's rock to his Maori inspired take on island reggae.

In case you need proof that reggae is the music of the world, check out the singer known to fans as “Sammy J.” He brings to reggae fans his own musical narrative as a New Zealander with Maori bloodlines and a background in social work. Steeped in the deep soul and R&B heritage of Sam Cooke and Stevie Wonder, Johnson is a familiar name on the reggae circuit. He makes his way to the Bay Area with a new album, Moonlight Lovers.
