John Mayer is a Grammy-Award winning, multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter from Bridgeport, Connecticut. He chose the guitar as a way to escape his parents’ troubled marriage after watching Michael J. Fox’s guitar solo in Back to the Future. Yes, it is difficult to believe but the high school dance scene is the reason that millions have had the opportunity to enjoy John Mayer tickets and albums.
Of course, it took a little practice before Mayer reached such great heights. He spent two years focusing on learning to play before venturing outside of his room and joining a local blues band. Then Mayer was just a guitarist. He only discovered a flair or passion for writing lyrics after suffering a cardiac dysrhythmia at the age of 17.
He flirted with the idea of foregoing college, but ended up going after his parents showed concern. That decision to go to college took him to the famed modern music school Berklee College of Music in Boston. He only stayed for a year before moving to Atlanta at the urging of a like-minded friend. He and that friend, Clay Cook, started playing as a two-man group in clubs and cafes. Despite learning guitar from a cassette tape of blues legend Stevie Ray Vaughan’s work, Mayer wanted to go pop. This led to a band break up and the discovery of John Mayer.
He built a solid reputation with a terrific EP and by playing local gigs and music festivals. After appearing at one such festival, South by Southwest, he signed with Aware Records and released the album Room for Squares. The immense success of this internet release led to radio play. Songs like “Your Body is a Wonderland, and “Why Georgia” brought him Grammy Awards and a new deal with Columbia Record.
Though Room for Squares has been his most commercially successful album, he went platinum and won awards for the albums Heavier Things, Continuum, and Battle Studies. In addition to these hit albums and big singles like “Daughters”, “Waiting on the World to Change”, and “Heartbreak Warfare”, the singer has tried his hand at television as a host, as a standup comedian, and as a writer for Esquire. He has been just as curious musically, moving back to blues rock from pop and then taking on the world of folk rock and country.
