Jason Mraz left his Virginia hometown right after high school and struck out for New York City to find his fame and fortune. Honing his skills by busking on the streets in the Big Apple, Jason decided that perhaps this line of work could be performed in a nicer climate. Next stop: San Diego, and soon Jason moved from the outdoor beachside stages to inside a local hot spot called Java Joe's. It was there he met percussionist/vocalist Toca Rivera and the two made a name for themselves all along the California coast. With the help and encouragement of manager Bill Silva and producer Jerry Lindahl, Jason recorded this CD in front of a live audience at Java Joe's. This led to his recording contract with Elektra/Atlantic and the subsequent releases Waiting For My Rocket To Come (2003), Mr. A-Z (2006) and We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things (2008).
