It finally happened. The other day I was in Taupo, which is sort of in the middle of New Zealand’s North Island, and I popped into an information center for a map. As I was scanning a wall of brochures, I heard faint notes coming from a radio behind the counter and then caught, “I won’t he-si-tate, no more, no more…”
Jason is in New Zealand! Not that I really thought he was unknown here or anything, but I hadn’t heard anything of his in a week, so I was starting to wonder.
Today I’m in Wellington and was passing by a CD store, and on a whim I went in to see if I could find WSWDWST. Not only did I find it, it was at the top of a rack of “Highly Recommended” artists. Very exciting.
I left the CD store and was walking back to my hostel, and as I passed this pub “I’m Yours” started playing. It was a lucky day all around.
Mraz is love, and he is everywhere.
(P.S. – I saw Ben’s note about Mraz and Morrison playing Vegas together. That’s a pairing I would love to see, so if anyone winds up with an extra ticket, please let me know.)
