Grammy award winning singer-songwriter Jason Mraz will kick off a string of UK live performances with this intimate gig at the Royal Albert Hall to mark the release of his much-anticipated fifth studio album, YES!.

Mraz’s journey has propelled him from the San Diego coffee house scene to arenas, amphitheatres and stadiums all over the world, making pop history along the way with his record-breaking single I’m Yours.

YES!, to be released on 14 July, sees the San Diego-based troubadour teaming up with his long-time friends and collaborators, Raining Jane, for a purely acoustic and more intimate sound than heard on his previous releases. While somewhat intimate and esoteric, YES! still remains a Mraz-like pop album and features classical instruments, cello, sitar and vintage guitars and sings about universal themes of love, faith, healing, environmental stewardship and inner peace.

“I am thrilled and look forward to coming back to the UK this summer as this will be my first performance at Hampton Court Palace Festival!  I am told that it is such a special and unique experience and, of course, all will be treated to a concert of favorite songs that will be familiar to their ears and also a few new ones from my recently released 50th Anniversary album, “NOW!”

During my regular search for new music, looking for something different, I came across this guy ‘Howl’. The first track ‘HV’ off his newly Released 10 track EP ‘Happy Valley’ instantly felt right at home in my head. Howl’s mix of ambient electronic sounds with gorgeously attended Vocals will melt you into the back of your chair. I couldn’t help but drift off peacefully, as I found the constant voice in my head silenced for once so I could take it all in. The space in the mix is fantastic, they say it’s just as much about the notes that are not played as much as the ones that are. Howl has superbly balanced the two to create a beautiful atmospheric EP satisfying your ears, but still leaving you wanting more.

After listening to the whole album, guess what? I wanted more. I got in touch with Josh (the man behind the music) and asked him about how the EP came about, and what ‘Howl’ was all about. I soon found out that Josh had written the EP in Hong Kong, where the ‘Happy Valley’ race track is located. It felt like fate. I myself am born in Hong Kong, and when we moved to England we named one of the Parks back home where I walked my Dog ‘Happy Valley’. The music so perfectly fit my foggy childhood memories of Hong Kong, though it retains a timeless, placeless quality that refused to leave my attention.

 

Just after releasing a single ‘Leo Johnson’ through the Independent Charts, Howl is playing at the Official Independent Charts Live Show at Cargo on Friday the 19th of Oct. I can’t wait to see what he has in store for the live act!

 

Support Howl by listening to and downloading the track ‘Leo Johnson’ he’s released on the Independent Charts: http://www.independentcharts.org/products-page/asia/leo-johnson/
