Jason Mraz is an American singer/songwriter who hailed originally from Mechanicsville, Virginia. After a brief stint in his youth at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy, he wound his way to San Diego, California, where he played the coffee houses and focused on his songwriting. Influenced somewhat by the music of his youth (Stevie Wonder, New Kid on the Block, Michael Jackson
, Aretha Franklin), Mraz's style is a blend of folk, pop, rock, reggae and hip-hop. He currently is a raw foodist (with occasional lapses) who owns an avocado farm in California. He also likes cats.
Mraz's major hits include "The Remedy (I Won't Worry)", "Geek in the Pink", "I'm Yours", and "I Won't Give Up".
