About Jason Mraz
Jason Mraz to play all five NY Boroughs
Jason Mraz has released his latest album "Yes," to critical acclaim and solid sales figures. The project bowed on July 15, 2014, and is his first true acoustic album. It was recorded with the pop-rock all-girl band Raining Jane, who had previously co-written "A Beautiful Mess" for Mraz's 2008 album "We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things."
Beyond a cover of the Boyz II Men song "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday," every song on "Yes!" was written by Mraz and Raining Jane. The lead single, "Love Someone," released on May 19, 2014, and Mraz recorded a separate acoustic version of the song for Time Magazine. A little more than a month later, he released "We Can Take the Long Way," a music video 'trilogy' for the first three songs on the album. It premiered on the USA Today website.
Mraz is now out on the road to promote "Yes!" and will do something pretty unique once the tour hits New York – he'll play shows in all five boroughs, something only two other mainstream artists have done before. The venues he'll stop at are the Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts (Brooklyn), the Lehman Center for the Performing Arts (Bronx), the Colden Auditorium (Queens), St. George Theatre (Staten Island), and Radio City Music Hall in downtown Manhattan.
Mraz's North American tour runs all the way to November, wrapping in Chicago with back-to-back dates at the Chicago Theatre on Nov. 7th and 8th. He'll head overseas just a few days later, with two dates in Tokyo and another date in Osaka, Japan.
Jason Mraz - From Coffee House to Concert Headliner
Straight from the San Diego coffee house scene, Jason Mraz used a jolt of Joe to find worldwide critical and commercial success inside a five-year window. The singer-songwriter from Virginia tapped into a crowd in tune with the sounds of local roots musicians and ran with the support, his popularity soaring as high as his vocal range as he crisscrossed the country.
Moving from the Commonwealth known as Old Dominion into the madness of a bustling New York, the California music scene would eventually settle Mraz in more ways than one. Landing a weekly gig at local hot spot Java Joe's after heading out West, Mraz formed a duo with drummer Noel "Toca" Rivera and moved into the Los Angeles area to grab the attention of record labels. He had a deal in place by 2002 and released his debut album, "Waiting for My Rocket to Come," that same year.
On the heels of an international breakthrough following the release of his sophomore effort, "The Remedy (I Won't Worry)" in 2005, Mraz kicked down the door three years later. His third studio album, "We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things," debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 was a commercial success around the world. It contained the single, "I'm Yours," which sat on the Hot 100 for 76 weeks, besting the previous record of 69 weeks held by Lee Ann Rimes for "How Do I Live."
Mraz's fourth album, "Love is a Four Letter Word," was released on April 13, 2012. Though it received generally favorable reviews, it was panned by one critic who attacked Mraz for his, "relentlessly upbeat and happy romanticism. The review went on to state that outlook was, "annoying for even the least cynical."
A tour in support of the album returns stateside in December, with Mraz expected to play Z100's Jingle Ball Jam at Madison Square Garden on Friday, December 7. He'll headline the iconic venue on his own four nights later.
