Jason Mraz

"I never would have written I’m Yours or I Wont Give Up without a regular writing practice. Neither song came from me saying, I’m going to sit down and write me a song today. Instead, they emerged from a regular habit of playing guitar and channeling my thoughts, feelings and emotions through song. In other words, a habit of making stuff up. Or in a deeper sense, becoming an instrument that Spirit gets to play." - Jason's journal

After high school,he moved to New York City to trymaking a living as a musician.He was not very successful, so hemoved back home until trying again.This time, he moved to Californiaand played his music in coffee shopsin San Diego.

He released his first CD "Waiting for My Rocket to Come" in 2002. It wasn't until his 2008 CD, "We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things" that he had a hit song and started to become more popular. In 2009, he was nominated for two Grammy awards for his song "I'm Yours". He didn't win, but he isn't in it for the hits or the money.

Jason likes to make music with a variety of people. Most recently, he has been playing around with a girl group called Raining Jane. They might release some music in the future. He wrote in his journal online "Stay tuned for updates, leaks and previews as this surprising new story unfolds. In the meantime, enjoy this clip of The Janes and I performing together for Feeding The Soul back in 2010."
