Last year, Jason Mraz celebrated the 15th anniversary of his Platinum-certified debut album Waiting For My Rocket To Come. While amassing a global fan base for his positive message and soulful, folk-pop sound, Mraz has earned numerous diamond and platinum certifications for his various releases, including his classic singles “I Won’t Give Up,” “Lucky,” and the record-breaking “I’m Yours.” He has won two Grammy Awards, received the prestigious Songwriter Hall of Fame Hal David Award, and sold out such fabled venues as The Hollywood Bowl, Madison Square Garden, and London’s O2 Arena.
It’s a testament to the generosity of spirit in Mraz’s music that so many people have chosen his songs as the soundtrack to major moments in their lives, and new memories are certain to be made with the songs on his upcoming sixth album, Know. Prior to this title, which serves as a nod to his 2014 LP “YES!,” the working name came from an excerpt of one of the album’s tracks.
While writing the album, Mraz took a break to star in Sara Bareilles’ Broadway show Waitress. He has also continued his philanthropy, including the Jason Mraz Foundation, which aims to uplift humanity through arts education and the advancement of equality and serving as a sponsor and program advisor for the School of the Performing Arts (SPARC) in his home state of Virginia.
