In 2009, Mraz received two Grammy nominations for his first Top 10 single, "Im Yours," off his third album, We Sing. We Dance, We Steal Things. The album also contained the singles "Make It Mine" and "Lucky," for which Mraz won two Grammys the following year for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance and Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals, respectively. Mraz's fourth album, Love Is A Four Letter Word, was his highest charting release to date, debuting at the Number Two spot in the US in 2012. Mraz wil release his fifth studio album, Yes, recorded with rock-folk band Raining Jane, later this year. Mraz performs at a secret location in Los Angeles.

Front woman Brittany Howard testified to the deeply felt truths of the songs with ferocity, and her bandmates were with her all the way-gutsy, dynamic, and altogether riveting.
