Jason Mraz shares about growing up in Virginia and how much he values the access he had to music in his public school. He says, …” Were it not for music rooms, much like the one we’re in right now, I don’t know if I would’ve put in enough hours to become the musician and person I am- so I know how vital these rooms are.” Mraz shares a turning point for him when he worked in a smoke shop in Virginia. He said that there were not very many customers which gave him a lot of time alone to practice music. He would bring his guitar to work with him and was able to practice while at work which he considers very valuable.
Jason Mraz’s latest album, Look for the Good, was released on Juneteenth and he shares his support of advancing equality. You will hear Larry and Jason discuss their belief in the Black Lives Matter Movement. Jason shares about the Jason Mraz Foundation.
