Jason Mraz is an eclectic singer/songwriter originally from Mechanicsville, Virginia. His music defies easy classification, living somewhere in the gray zone between pop, rock, folk, jazz, country, and rap. He's toured with Alanis Morissette and the Rolling Stones; he's played with Bob Dylan, Jewel, Paula Cole, and Dave Matthews Band. His boyish good looks and charm keep his fans spellbound, and his amazing voice and songwriting can be found filling many MP3 players around the country and world.
His latest album, Mr. A-Z, builds off his prior album Waiting for My Rocket to Come while acknowledging and telling the story of his rise from coffehouse performances to packed arenas and super-stardom. His first single from the album, Wordplay, tells of the pressures of the "sophomore slump" possibility and the insatiable appetite of consumers for new music from artists.
Jason is currently linked to fellow singer-songwriter Tristan Prettyman, whom he met when she performed as an opener for one of his tours. However, Mraz has also joined the ranks of the "gay vague" and though has outright said he's not gay, he reportedly said while promoting Mr. A-Z:
I have a bisexually open mind, but I have never been in a sexual relationship with a man. If the right one came along, then sure.
I'm sure he's not at a loss for volunteers.
