I was fumbling through my iPod to resurrect some long forgotten tunes and I decided to give my older Jason Mraz CD’s a whirl again. I’ve been a fan of San Diego based Mraz for years but haven’t spun his older tracks in many moons. I’m sure you’ve heard his current hit, I’m Yours, that’s been circulating on the radio, from his recently released May 2008 CD, We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things. I just adore his sassy lyrical wordsmith style.

Listening to his earlier songs reminded me why I like him. He makes me smile. And smiling feels good. 

There are plenty of tracks you can sink your teeth into and hum over and over again. I heart Mr. Curiosity, The Remedy, You and I Both, Bella Luna, and of course who doesn’t love Geek in the Pink, made even that more famous by the American Idol contest, Chris Richardson. (But of course, Jason’s the real rhythm and rhyme master). Mr. Mraz will be in flapping his chops in Sweden this September and Fattie just surprised me with tickets! Yah! 

Here are just a couple videos to get you in the mood.

Jason’s current hit, I’m Yours

and one of my favorite songs, Life is Wonderful from his CD, Mr. A-Z:

Ok, I realize I might be a little obsessive by nature. Even my friends would agree, once I like something I really like it. I’m just loyal and dedicated like that. That’s how I roll.

My current addiction is Brett Dennen.

Yeah, I heard him a couple years ago too but couldn’t really decide how much I liked him – I mean, was I willing to commit, get off my wallet, and fork over the $12.99 for his new CD? Well, after about a year pondering it and getting more & more attached to the 3 songs I did own by this musical master, I decided yes; Brett’s definitely worth it. I immediately – and happily – purchased just about everything by Dennen I could get my grubby paws on and have been playing him non-stop for a few weeks months. (wow – the time has flown by)

Brett Dennen is the passionate, confident, and captivating freckled face 28 year old Californian whom I currently adore. This goofy red haired, sometimes headband wearing, guitar carrying, singer songwriter’s music is brilliant, honest, and completely mesmerizing to me.

Rolling Stone names Brett Dennen as one of the top 10 artists to watch in 2008. (for the full article click here)

They offer this illustration on Brett’s “sound”.
