Twenty-five year old Jason Mraz made his first forays into the music scene at a young age, making the pilgrimage from Mechanicsville, Virginia to New York City at eighteen to study performance and music theater. Soon, he was honing his singer-songwriter skills busking on the streets of Manhattan. Eventually making his way to the west coast, Mraz now embraces what he calls a life of sleep, peace and poetry -- and hundreds of shows that have smitten thousands of fans. His debut album, Waiting For My Rocket To Come, is packed with witty, wordy, smart, funky and astonishingly catchy pop songs that do right by the best singer-songwriter traditions of Elektra. The album was produced by John Alagia, who has worked with the Dave Matthews Band and John Mayer, among others.

but after seeing him perform live, i can not say enough about this smoking hot young talent! other reviewers have said that this studio recording, while quite good, can not do justice to the live versions of the songs. he is a consummate performer & entertainer. he loves to connect with the audience, instead of simply playing his songs.
some think he sounds like john mayer (they share the same producer, who has done a lot of Dave Matthews Band), but jason has the much more pure and elastic tenor voice. i still admire john mayer, but jason really outshines john in vocals and versatility.
you can go to jason's website:
to buy his live CD from 2001. recorded at Smoky Joe's. He is also recording another live CD (yeah)
Buy this CD and you won't regret it; you will play it over and over without getting bored! But you must see him perform LIVE in order to fully appreciate this great musician singer.
