Jason Mraz, born on March 23, 1977 and raised in Mechanicsville, Virginia, was mostly influenced with such music genres as reggae, pop, rock, jazz, folk and hip-hop. Having a strong interest in music, he attended the American Musical and Dramatic Academy but dropped out a year later when he decided to pick up guitar at the age of 18 and started exploring his singing talent at strawberry fields and on the streets of Manhattan.
After busking around the Big Apple, Jason moved to San Diego. There, he landed a singing career as a duo with drummer Noel "Toca" Rivera. Along with Toca, he performed at the coffeehouses around the town before getting signed to Elektra Records.
