More About Jason Mraz
Jason Mraz is an American singer-songwriter who first came to prominence in the San Diego coffee shop scene in 2000. In 2002 he released his debut studio album, Waiting for My Rocket to Come, which contained the hit single “The Remedy (I Won’t Worry)”. With the release of his second album, Mr. A-Z, in 2005, Mraz achieved major commercial success. The album peaked at number 5 on the Billboard 200 and sold over 100,000 copies in the US. In 2008 Mraz released his third studio album, We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things. It debuted at number 3 on the Billboard 200 and was an international commercial success primarily due to the hit “I’m Yours”. The song peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, giving him his first top ten single, and spent a then-record 76 weeks on the Hot 100. His fourth album, Love Is a Four Letter Word, peaked at number 2 on the Billboard 200, his highest-charting album to date.
Jason Mraz has won two Grammy Awards and received two additional nominations, and has also won two Teen Choice Awards, a People’s Choice Award and the Hal David Songwriters Hall of Fame Award. He has earned Platinum and multi-Platinum certifications in over 20 countries, and has toured in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, the Middle East and parts of Africa. As of July 2014 Mraz has sold over seven million albums, and over 11.5 million downloaded singles. His musical style, from rhythmic feeling to his use of nylon string guitars, has been heavily influenced by Brazilian music.
Prior to and following his involvement in Waitress, Jason Mraz began work on a follow-up album to Yes! In June 2018, he announced that his sixth studio album, Know.—a play on the previous album’s title—will be released on August 10, 2018. He referred to the new album as “bright and shiny” and a “classic-sounding pop acoustic, vocally driven record with positive lyrics and love songs.”
Inspired by a blessing he received from a Buddhist monk during a trip to Myanmar in 2012, Mraz wrote the song “Have It All” with Raining Jane and producers David Hodges, JKash, and Andrew Wells. The song was released as the lead single to the new album on April 27, 2018, and accompanied by a video filmed with performing arts students from his hometown of Richmond. With the announcement of the album in June 2018, Mraz released a second track off of Know. called “Unlonely”. In July 2018, Mraz shared the lyric video for the song “More Than Friends”, a duet with Meghan Trainor. On August 7, 2018, he partnered with Fathom Events on the one-night-only release of Jason Mraz – Have It All The Movie, a concert film and behind the scenes footage of the making of the “Have It All” video, in 600 movie theaters throughout North America. On August 10, 2018, his 6th album, Know., was released. In 2019, he was featured on the album The Secret by Alan Parsons as lead vocalist of the song “Miracle”.
