NEW YORK, June 14, 2012—It isn’t often a pair of singer-songwriter pros with multiple hits under their belts come together under one roof, but that’s exactly what happened when Daryl Hall joined forces with Jason Mraz for the 55th and latest edition of his critically acclaimed, award-winning Live from Daryl’s House web series and nationally syndicated program, premiering June 15 at www.lfdh.com.
 
The duo’s six-song set includes versions of “Eyes for You,” a track from Daryl’s recent, critically acclaimed solo album, Laughing Down Crying,” and “So Close,” the hit single from Daryl Hall and John Oates’ 1990 Arista album, Change of Season.  The pair tackled a number of Mraz’s hits, including “I Won’t Give Up,” which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Digital Songs chart, and reached #1 at iTunes as the first single from his new Atlantic Records album, Love is a Four Letter Word. In addition, Daryl and Jason team up on “I’m Yours,” which has surpassed 21 million sales worldwide, spending a record 76 weeks on the Billboard chart, earned Mraz ASCAP “Song of the Year” honors, a pair of Grammy nominations and the accolades of the N.Y. Times’ Jon Caramanica, who dubbed it “one of the most indelible pop songs of the last decade.” The set also includes Mraz’s 2002 breakthrough, “The Remedy (I Won’t Worry),” as well as “93 Million Miles,” from the new album and “You and I Both,” another song from his debut, Waiting for My Rocket to Come. 
 
“I think visiting Daryl’s house today will probably put more soul into my shows,” said Mraz, who also learned the art of making Indian samosas during the visit. “I’ve always loved his voice from way back, so being able to throw a high harmony on his from time to time is real cool. As a singer, you look forward to singing with other singers, and there’s no one better than Daryl Hall.”
 
The Virginia-born singer-songwriter made his mark on the San Diego coffee house scene in 2000. Love is a Four Letter Word is his fourth studio album, and this month he will embark on his “Tour is a Four Letter Word” world concert jaunt with a series of shows in South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore. The U.S. portion kicks off August 9 at New Orleans’ Lakefront Arena, with stop at Denver’s Red Rocks (Sept. 24) and L.A.’s Hollywood Bowl (Oct. 5). Mraz’s recent TV appearances include Late Show with David Letterman, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live,Chelsea Lately, VH1’s Storytellers and NBC’s The Today Show.
 
Said Daryl: “Jason has a high, clear voice and contributes great harmonies. I really enjoyed singing the verses of his songs, too. It was a lot of fun.”
