Jason Mraz
About Me: 
Beloved for his distinctive blend of passionate, personal lyricism with flavors of pop, rock, reggae, folk, hip-hop, and jazz, troubadour Jason Mraz has staked a major claim in modern music history. In 1999, the Mechanicsville, Virginia-born tunesmith made his way to San Diego, where he quickly found a home among the city’s thriving coffeehouse folk scene. Mraz soon signed to Elektra and released his 2002 debut album, Waiting For My Rocket To Come. The album’s lead single, “The Remedy (I Won’t Worry),” proved a top 15 hit on Billboard’s “Hot 100,” pushing the collection to RIAA platinum certification.

With Elektra going into hiatus, Mraz’s next release was on sister label Atlantic. 2005’s Mr.A-Z debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200. Next up was 2008’s We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things., which entered the chart at #3, earning RIAA platinum the next year as Mraz entered the record books with his hit single, “I’m Yours.” Described by the songwriter as “his happy little hippie song,” “I’m Yours” spent a remarkable 76 weeks on Billboard’s “Hot 100,” shattering the record previously held by LeAnn Rimes’ 1997 smash, “How Do I Live” for the longest “Hot 100” chart run. Certified five-times platinum by the RIAA, the Grammy-nominated “I’m Yours” is currently the third best selling digital single of all time. In 2010, Mraz nailed his first two Grammy Awards for songs from We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things.: Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for “Make It Mine” and Best Pop Collaboration for “Lucky” with Colbie Caillat. A charismatic live performer dedicated to making an intimate connection with his audience, Mraz has also released a series of concert recordings, including 2004’s Tonight, Not Again: Jason Mraz Live At The Eagles Ballroom, 2006’s digital-only Selections For Friends, and 2009’s Jason Mraz’s Beautiful Mess – Live On Earth.
