Acoustic Autumn: Ten Tours You Should See in 2014
Noooo! It can't be! Summer is just about over.
But here's something to help ease you into autumn. It's ten great live acoustic tours that will be sure to warm your musical heart as the leaves change color.
Are you looking for a raucous good time, or a meaningful musical moment? There's something here for everyone, I assure you!
I'll be at most of these when they hit the Boston metro area, and I advise you to mark your calendar as well.
So, get off your couch, put your laptop in sleep mode and get out there and see some amazing live shows. You won't regret it!
Have you checked out Jason Mraz's new album, YES!? Really great writing, fun to listen to, all the elements that lead to a great live show.
Mraz knows how to do it!
Since getting his start 15 years ago performing in coffeehouses in his adopted city of San Diego, Mraz has brought his positive message and soulful, folk-pop sound to rapt audiences around the world through his recordings, vibrant live performances, and philanthropic efforts.
With YES!, Mraz has released his first-ever acoustic album, which he wrote and recorded with his friends in the L.A.-based folk-rock band Raining Jane.
“The whole album is the product of yes,” says Mraz. “Whether it’s Raining Jane saying yes to our annual songwriting retreats, which led to this collection of songs, or my label giving us the green light to let them become my next album. If anyone on our journey had said no, we wouldn't be where we are. YES! really is the connector.”
Here's "Love Someone" from YES!
