Waiting For His Rocket
Mraz was born and raised in Mechanicsville, Virginia where he admits he was bullied in high school. As a teenager, he performed in musical theater and developed an interest in becoming a singer-songwriter. After graduating in 1995, he spent some time in New York City before settling in San Diego, California in 1999.
There, he landed a weekly spot at Java Joe’s, a popular café that doubled as a spot for local acts to showcase their music. He slowly started to expand his following until he got the attention of record execs at Elektra. With Elektra, he released his debut album Waiting for My Rocket to Come in November 2002. While it wasn’t an enormous success, singles like ‘The Remedy (I Won’t Worry)’ and ‘Curbside Prophet’ got him some serious airplay and a wider fanbase.
In July 2005, he released his sophomore album, Mr. A-Z, which debuted at number five on the charts, before taking a hiatus and releasing his third album, We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things. three years later. The album won him two Grammy Awards in 2009 for Best Pop Collaboration with Colbie Caillat on the track ‘Lucky’ and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance with Vocals for ‘Make It Mine.’ It also produced the chart-topping single ‘I’m Yours,’ which was nominated for two Grammys including Song of the Year.
Beyond music, Mraz is also an outspoken activist. He’s a major proponent of sustainable farming, equal rights and a healthy vegan lifestyle. In December 2010 Jason proposed to girlfriend and fellow singer songwriter, Tristan Prettyman, but the pair decided to hold off on marriage until it was a right for all couples. An avid environmentalist, he also often blogs about going green and his endless quest for sustainability in every aspect of his life, including touring. In 2008, he purchased a five-acre avocado farm in San Diego.
Mraz joined Farm Aid in October of 2010, playing at the 25th Anniversary of the show. The eco-conscious performer expressed his plans to live “off the grid.” The avid surfer has also spoke out against the BP oil spill, expressing his disbelief as to why a million people weren’t lining the Gulf Coast beaches with buckets in hand for the clean-up effort. Mraz was given the title of 2010 Humanitarian of the Year by the Surf Industry Manufacturers Association. The singer also co-founded the eco-friendly t-shirt company BlendApparel.com. In a nutshell, this quirky musician is unique and involved—maybe also evolved.
