Jason Mraz made his major label debut in 2002 with Waiting for My Rocket to Come, which exploded off the charts with such hits as “Remedy (I Won’t Worry)” and “You and I Both.”  In 2005 he returned with his Grammy-nominated, critically-acclaimed Mr. A-Z, which continued his chart success with “Wordplay.”  Throughout, relentless touring led to his reputation as a tremendous live act to soar.  His latest effort, 2008’s We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things. has proven to be his most successful to date, which includes the Grammy-nominated single “I’m Yours.”
G.Love & Special Sauce is a three-part Alternative Hip-Hop band consisting of members Garrett Dutton, better known as G. Love, Jeffrey Clemens on drums and Mark Boyce on keyboards.   Their latest album, Superhero Brother, was released last year. 
K’naan’s distinctive sound is one that fuses Bob Marley, conscious American Hip-Hop and brilliant protest poetry.  Influenced by his childhood in Somali, K’naan describes his style as “urgent music with a message.”
