This is the best new album and artist to hit the music scene in a while! Do you recall the upraise of artists like Jack Johnson and John Mayer these past couple years - well, in a matter of months JASON MRAZ is going to be on that list for sure. I personally like Jason's sound more than both John Mayer and Jack Johnson - and I've been a huge fan of both since day one. His music is just PURE BEAUTY, with an UNBELIEVABLE VOICE, a FUNNY and CONFIDENT stage presence, a CHARMING personality and guitar licks that will sooth any soul, Jason is a musician to love. I saw him open for Dave Matthews at the Gorge and, despite how amazing Waiting for My Rocket to Come is, his studio album will never do justice to his live performances. This album is a must have, and an even greater must is to see Jason live when he's anywhere near your hometown. I think in light of Tom Petty's new album, The Last DJ, he would join me in saying, "Finally, a talented musician who loves music a little bit more than money."
How many songwriters craft tunes that seem to get better with every listen?
There's not much more for me to add here. Just echoing other people's admiration of this great new songwriter.
Having seen him at Disney Hall here in LA, I also really respect his chops as a performer. He makes it a point to connect with the audience as much as possible, and he's able to continuously re-invent his songs. Hope he keeps it up.
Favorite Mraz tunes (as of right now): Absolutely Zero, You and I Both, 1000 Things.
