John Mayer Trio

After making his introduction as a sensitive, acoustic-styled songwriter on 2001's Room for Squares, John Mayer steadily widened his approach over the subsequent years, encompassing everything from blues-rock to adult contemporary in the process. Arriving during the tail end of teen pop's heyday, he crafted pop music for a more discerning audience, spiking his songcraft with jazz chords and literate turns of phrase. The combination proved to be quite popular, as Room for Squares went triple platinum before its follow-up release, Heavier Things, arrived in September 2003. Mayer continued to retool his sound with each album, however, moving beyond the material that had launched his career and adopting elements of rock, blues, and soul. Moreover, he partnered with legends of several genres, making guest appearances on albums by Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, and B.B. King, while touring alongside jazz icon Herbie Hancock. Mayer also retained enough pop/rock foundation to continue his reign of the charts, making him one of the decade's most popular songwriters.

Born in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and raised in the nearby town of Fairfield, Mayer began playing blues as a teenager. By 1997, his skill on the electric guitar was enough to warrant admission into the Berklee College of Music, although Mayer dropped out after two semesters to pursue a songwriting career in Atlanta. Working alongside former classmate Clay Cook, he frequented the local coffeehouse circuit and began co-writing material that melded palatable pop/rock with unexpected flourishes. Cook and Mayer parted ways shortly thereafter, however, with Cook joining the Marshall Tucker Band's touring lineup for several years. Now a solo artist by default, Mayer recorded several of the duo's songs, packaged them alongside a handful of his own compositions, and self-released the EP in 1999 under the title Inside Wants Out.

Mayer secured a deal with Aware Records in early 2000, and recording sessions for his debut album commenced later that year with producer John Alagia, renowned for his work with Dave Matthews and Ben Folds Five. Although Inside Wants Out had been a decidedly acoustic effort, Room for Squares proved to be a more expansive affair, with several of Mayer's old songs receiving new, radio-ready arrangements. Released in 2001 by both Aware and Columbia Records, the album quickly launched Mayer's career, with "No Such Thing" and "Your Body Is a Wonderland" both becoming Top 20 hits.

As Mayer hit the road in support of the album, his considerable talent as a lead guitarist (a skill that had been downplayed during Room for Squares) flourished, leading him to showcase several blues-influenced solos on his 2003 live album, Any Given Thursday. That same year, Mayer won his first Grammy Award for "Your Body Is a Wonderland." He returned to the Grammy ceremony two years later, this time to accept a pair of awards for "Daughters," a soulful ballad from his lucrative sophomore release, Heavier Things. Commercial and critical success notwithstanding, Mayer's interest in other genres convinced him to take a brief break from pop music, and he tested his instrumental chops by collaborating with blues artists (Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Eric Clapton) and jazz legends (John Scofield, Herbie Hancock). He also assembled the John Mayer Trio, whose bluesy rock & roll was displayed on the band's first and only release, Try!

Mayer returned to his solo career with 2006's Continuum, a warmly received album that saw him focusing on blues, pop, and contemporary soul. "Gravity" found modest success as a single, but "Waiting on the World to Change" proved to be the album's commercial highlight, cracking the Top 20 in February 2007 and winning a Grammy that same month. Later that year, Mayer achieved his highest-charting single to date with "Say," a song from the Rob Reiner film The Bucket List. After "Say" peaked at number 12, the song was included in a reissued version of Continuum, and it took home yet another Grammy Award (along with "Gravity") in early 2009.

Mayer returned to the studio in 2009 and emerged with Battle Studies, featuring the single "Heartbreak Warfare." Building upon Continuum's slick, adult contemporary sound, the album sold well. However, its release marked a tough period for Mayer's public image, as he was criticized for comments he made about ex-girlfriends Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston during interviews for Rolling Stone and Playboy. Subsequently, Mayer deleted his Twitter account and took some time off from appearing in public and doing interviews.

In 2011, while recording his fifth studio album, the Don Was-produced Born and Raised, Mayer revealed that he would be receiving treatment for granulomas found near his vocal cords. Following his surgery, Mayer completed the album and debuted the leadoff single "Shadow Days." A stripped-down affair, Born and Raised showcased a more rootsy, folk and country-tinged sound than his previous efforts. Three months before the album's release, a recurrence of Mayer's granulomas forced him to cancel his subsequent planned tour and abstain from singing indefinitely while he received more treatment. Upon its release, Born and Raised became Mayer's first album to spend more than two weeks at the number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart. In 2013, Mayer returned to the studio with Don Was to record Paradise Valley, his sixth album and one that would continue to explore the rootsy, folk style of Born and Raised. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi

John Mayer Trio I hope???
John Mayer. NOLA bound. Can't wait to see him.
kgp.cali
Yep! Saw him in concert last July (2013) and he did NOT disappoint! He did a 3 hour & 10 minute no breaks concert...WH O DOES THAT?? John Mayer, that's who! AND it was over 100+ degrees here that day! That to me just shows his true love for what he does and I believe that he honestly enjoys seeing a fully packed house with nearly every face in the crowd SMILING through out the entire concert! He wore me out! What a super performer! Loved every minute of it! Don't miss JM LIVE!
kgp.cali
I've had my eye on JM for a very long time. Watched him grow up honing his skills, morphing into whatever state of mind he happened to be in at any given moment. Saw him make some pretty horrid Hollywood Dating faux pas (& learn from them!). All the while making some of THE BEST damned versatile music EVER! He's come a long way baby & he ain't done yet! The man is truly a genius, a superb guitar aficionado with a stunningly unique voice that he so effortlessly adapts genre to genre. AMAZING!
trio is awesome!

A musician myself,I relate to the various metamorphise s that John has experienced. Music soothes the savage beast. Im 60...still play. John is a good influence.
twice as much aint twice as good. ummmm words of wisdom.
I am 63 years old just found your man here ….I have heard much blues, rock, soul, R&B, jazz, blues is a fav and this man sings the blues…he knows the blues…and that's what it takes..to have felt the blues…music etc….and he admits so much honesty about himself, much that I can relate to, as human suffering.
This here is a man with heart.
pgt
This guy is coming to my town and I'm going to see him!!!!!!!

Mayer is becoming more comfortable with his sound and in his own skin. Just sit back and listen! Amazing . . .
Nice Kool Young Blues Player (y)
John Mayer Trio???????? Bye!!!!!!!
Okay you get more time!! B back as soon as I can Hal's hungry ;) <3> til later;)
John's music is absolutely genius.
Taylor Swift is beautiful damn she doesn't need him ;-p she can have any guy she wants!!!!;)
So is John’s new album an apology to Taylor? The lyrics in his new single “Shadow Days” give a resounding YES.
“Well I ain’t no troublemaker / And I never meant her harm / But it doesn’t mean I didn’t make it hard to carry on,” John sings in the new song.
Gravity makes us older & wiser...
The only way I would like John Mayer US if he apologises to taylor swift
Robetgriffin 995 he is so good to be so dam young he think like a old person
He is such an amazing artist. I would love to see him live!

loveeeeee John's new video Shadow Days http://www.v e v o . c o m / a r t i s t / j o h n - m a y e r ? s o u r c e = i n s t a n t s e a r c h & o r d e r b y r e c e n t = f a l s e
Epitome of a fantastic singer/songw r i t e r . Impossible for him to release anything that is less than amazing. Can't wait to love Born and Raised.
Down in the hospital recovering from a bad motorcycle wreck, one gets to spend alot of time in one's own lil head. It' s a great feeling when all those intense feelings I have been sitting with here with, in a sense get spelled out by the music. For me the guitar and the blues, are how I get to say things my mouth doesn't quiet know how to say, but my heart spits out threw my music in a language everyone understands.

John Mayer is an incredible artist and is exploring a variety of pop, blues, etc... in my opinion, I believe Mr. Mayer is not just a performer, but an icon. I one day strive to become even close to what he has achieved. I have an Ibanez that has sat in the corner dusty and all... however, listening to Mayer has opened my eyes to a different side of music entirely and has now me not wanting to put it down since I've been playing. Thanks John.
