Jason Mraz is one of the finest folk singer/songwriters of his generation. He studied musical theater in New York for a time and moved on to learn guitar, hitting the scene in San Diego, California in 1999, playing coffee houses and clubs. Jason has a relaxed and irreverent style, and often mixes music with comedy at his live performances. This is an artist you will want to see in concert, so why not buy tickets to a Jason Mraz show?
Born in Mechanicsville, Virginia, Jason grew up as a fan of bands like the Dave Matthews Band and the Agents of Good Roots. Jason worked with drummer Toca Rivera (Djembe) to form a live show that mixed a lot of comedic chitchat between him and Toca with the music. These shows garnered Mraz a lot of attention from fans, other bands and labels.
The Agents of Good Roots eventually became the back-up band for his first album on Elektra Records, Waiting for My Rocket to Come. Released in 2002, this debut blended Jason's influences of country, roots rock and folk. His music even has hints of jazz and hip-hop, and all these are evident in songs like 'The Remedy,' 'I'll Do Anything' and 'On Love, In Sadness.'
If you haven't heard him play, you should buy tickets now to see Jason Mraz. You will be impressed by his clear, strong vocals and jamming folk guitar. His songwriting is poetic, sometimes mellow, and always playful. Get your tickets and you are sure to hear songs like 'Life is Wonderful' and 'Wordplay' off Jason Mraz's 2005 album, Mr. A-Z
