The American singer-songwriter, born June 23, 1977 in Mechanicsville, Virginia, (that name always makes me chuckle) has slowly but surely won over the world with his particular melange of acoustic reggae, pop, rock, folk, jazz, and hip hop.
Mraz released his debut album, Waiting for My Rocket to Come, which contained the hit single "The Remedy (I Won't Worry)", in 2002, but it wasn't until the release of his second album, Mr. A-Z, in 2005, that Mraz achieved major commercial success.
The album peaked at number five on the Billboard 200 and sold over 100,000 copies in the US.
In 2008, Mraz released his third studio album, We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things.
The album debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 and was a commercial success worldwide, peaking in the top ten of many international charts.
His fourth studio album, Love Is a Four Letter Word, was released in April and sees the singer continuing to ride the crest of this musical wave.
