Since lending his talents to the likes of Travie McCoy, Cee Lo Green and B.o.B earlier this year, Bruno Mars has become one of today's most sought-after musicians — seemingly overnight. The Hawaiian-born singer/songwriter/producer released his debut full-length, Doo-Wops & Hooligans, last month. The ten-track album's musical influences range from reggae to rock, but yet it remains comfortably within the pop category. Mars' smooth and soft-spoken vocals lend themselves well to the catchy hooks and simple style for which he's becoming known, and they've helped him score a No. 1 hit with "Just the Way You Are." Mars has recently brought his act back stateside, having finished up a European tour earlier this month.
