One of the world’s hardest working and most beloved artists, Jason Mraz’s journey has propelled him from the San Diego coffee house scene to arena, amphitheatres, and stadiums all over the world. A two-time GRAMMY® Award winner and six-time nominee, Mraz made pop history with his record-breaking classic single, “I’m Yours,” while also earning platinum and multi-platinum certifications in more than 20 countries. Moreover, the San Diego-based troubadour has proven a truly diverse creative presence. A dedicated surfer, farmer/gardener, filmmaker, and photographer, Mraz is first and foremost a committed global citizen. His impassioned social activism and philanthropic efforts span wide-ranging environmental advocacy and ardent support for LGBT equality. Though it all, Jason Mraz continually confirms and celebrates music’s myriad forms and miraculous power, inspiring and delighting his countless fans around the world he calls home.
“YES!” marks what is perhaps the most unexpected and accomplished collection of this musician’s already extraordinary career. Highlighted by the first single, “Love Someone,” the album – which finds Mraz teaming up with his longtime friends, Raining Jane, who will also accompany him to Johannesburg and Cape Town, debuted #1 on the sales charts in 46 territories around the world.
This year, Mraz made a conscious choice to perform in venues smaller than the usual amphi-theatres and arenas. Mraz now looks forward to getting to South Africa for more personalized shows and to interacting with his fans. For up-to-the-minute information, please log on to jasonmraz.com/tour.
