Rochford to welcome James Blunt and Jason Mraz

James Blunt.

Internationally acclaimed singer and songwriter James Blunt will make his much-anticipated return to Australia at next year’s A Day on the Green at Rochford Wines.

The multi-platinum British artist will team up with special guest and old friend Jason Mraz in November to bring a series of Australian shows.

The tour comes off the back of James’ recently released and critically acclaimed sixth album, Once Upon A Mind.

James first hit the big stage 15 years ago after his debut album Back to Bedlam brought the global sensation You’re Beautiful to the world’s ears.

Since then, the chart-topping superstar has amassed more than 67 million streams in Australia and sold 23 million albums worldwide.

He has also earned five Grammy Award nominations, two BRIT Awards and two Ivor Novello Awards.

James recently returned with his new deeply personal album debuting at number five in Australia on the ARIA chart.

He said his new material goes back to where it all began.

“I’m back where I started,” James said.

“Writing songs for me and the people around me. And I’m free again.”

Jason Mraz’s soulful folk-pop sound has led to seven million album sales, two Grammy Awards and honours at the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

His hits include the record-breaking I’m Yours, I Won’t Give Up, Love Is Still The Answer and The Remedy (I Won’t Worry).

Currently recording new music for release in 2020, the San Diego singer-songwriter, has just released Christmas Valentine, a holiday duet with Ingrid Michaelson.

Australian artist Olympia will also make her A Day on the Green debut during this tour.

The trio will take to the stage at Rochford Wines on 15 November.

Tickets go on sale 3 December at 10am.
