Jason Mraz

Jason Mraz is a Californian singer, born on June 23, 1977. He works in a wide range of genres, from pop rock to blue-eyed soul and acoustic hip hop. His background is of Czech and Slovak origin, and his surname means “frost” in Czech. Growing up in rural Virginia left a positive mark on him, as he remembers his childhood as perfect one. After that, he tried to attend various universities with little success. Eventually, he ended up in San Diego, where he began his music career. He began with being a roadie for “Elgin Park” band. Album “Live at Java Joe’s” went live in 2001, and was named after the coffee house he was working in for three years. Elektra Records signed him up shortly afterwards. And his new album “Waiting for My Rocket to Come” came out. One single from this album, “The Remedy (I Won’t Worry)”, was especially successful, getting to third spot on Hot 100. After three years of sales, album achieved platinum status. Second album, “Mr. A–Z”, was released in 2005 and claimed 5th spot on Billboard’s 200 right away and Grammy nomination later. Jason toured heavily in support of this album, also appearing on a number of opening acts for such stars as Alanis Morissette. He continued his hard work, releasing new album every three years after this.
