GIVEAWAY – Good Vibes Tour and Good Energy with Jason Mraz and Brett Dennen


Good Vibes Tour Let’s… In Good Energy with Jason Mraz and Brett Dennen

Music’s favorite singer-songwriter is back on tour to celebrate his latest release, Know, out August 10th. Jason Mraz is retreating back to the stage in lieu of overseeing his avocado farm, Cafe Gratitude, and beach time, prepping us all for what’s been hyped up to be his best record yet.

When Mraz isn’t playing the role of international pop star, he’s a social activist with his hand in many jars, so to speak. The Jason Mraz Foundation was established seven years ago in order to support charities supporting human quality, environmental preservation, music education, mental health resources, and human trafficking, to name a few.

The San Diego native has also thrown together a film, entitled Jason Mraz: Have It All The Movie, to celebrate “the power of arts education, inclusion, and popcorn”. The documentary-esque film provides a glimpse into Mraz’s upcoming album Know, with new songs and fan favorites sprinkled in for every type of fan. The movie will be released to all audiences on August 10th, though are tickets selling quickly for the premier on August 7th!

When he decides to jump back into the music industry as a performer, Mraz is busy winning Grammy’s, singing duets with other pop stars (see: “More Than Friends” with Meghan Trainor), and promoting a healthy, loving lifestyle. His sixth album Know has been rumored to be his best album yet, at least according to the #JasonMraz hasthtag that’s been blowing up lately.

Hopping on tour with Mraz is fellow singer-songwriter Brett Dennen. Being in Dennen’s presence alone makes it hard to avoid his contagious positivity. His sweet, soft, voice mixed with passionate songwriting makes for irresistible music that we just can’t help but love.

Having released nine albums since 2004, Dennen is a passionate artist making music he loves for the people he loves. “Let’s…” is one of the two EPs Dennen plans to release this year. When fans asked why he is releasing EPs and not an album, Dennen responded “I’m releasing two EPs this year so, it’s like a full album, however, released in two halves.” Throughout the album, there is a theme of fitting in your skin and finding a place to belong. Dennen said “Life is better with friends. So my message is this, let’s get together and be better.”

As of July 18th, Dennen claims the second EP is close to being finished, and “will be out before you know it.”

The Good Vibes Tour kicked off in Grand Rapids this week and is making its way through the United States throughout the remainder of Summer. You’ll have plenty of time to gear up for the new album with a Mraz show, and will gain a new favorite artist via Dennen while you’re at it. Grab your tickets here!
