|John Mayer is an American singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. A former student of the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Mayer is best known as a pop guitarist, having penned numerous hit singles. While he also performs with a group known as the John Mayer Trio, he has found most of his success as a solo artist, releasing six studio albums and receiving countless accolade over a decade.
Arguably one of the most skilled guitarists around today, John Mayer has risen from bubble gum pop singer to bona-fide blues man. The Connecticut-born singer-songwriter has come a long way since his debut, but one thing has remained the same - John Mayer tickets offer fans the chance to see a great show.
Mayer has been playing guitar since he was in his early teens, and after moving to Atlanta he started his music career in earnest. By the time he was in his early 20s, Mayer had gotten to work on a debut EP, and in 1999 he released Inside Wants Out, and his career was off. That EP featured a number of popular tunes, but none more so than “No Such Thing,” which went on to be the lead single from his feature length debut, Room For Squares, and established him as a radio star.
His 2001 debut album, Room for Squares, was an immediate hit thanks to a long list of popular pop rock singles including “No Such Thing” and “Your Body is a Wonderland,” the latter went on to earn him a Grammy for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. During the 2000s, few solo artists were quite as popular as Mayer. Singles such as “Daughters” and “Your Body Is A Wonderland” endeared him to pop fans, while more intricate tracks including “Gravity,” and “Vultures” showed his skill with the guitar.
Between 2004 and 2006, Mayer beat out heavyweights like Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Prince and Seal for awards. Though Mayer had considerable success with his patented acoustic, radio friendly sound by 2006, it became apparent that he wanted to expand more artistically, and Continuum was the result. The record showcased Mayer’s talent on guitar and featured more blues-inspired songs, such as “Gravity” and “I Don’t Trust Myself (With Loving You),” and earned him a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year.
In 2009, he was awarded the Grammy for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance for the song “Gravity” from Continuum. Mayer is also known for having some high-profile relationships, being previously romantically involved with Taylor Swift, Jessica Simpson, Katy Perry and Jennifer Love Hewitt, among others.
Mayer’s albums include Room for Squares, Heavier Things, Continuum, Battle Studies, Born and Raised and Paradise Valley. All of his records have gone on to be commercial successes, ultimately earning him a loyal fan base and critical acclaim. Mayer has been nominated for multiple Grammys, with several wins under his belt.
It’s hard to deny Mayer’s talent, and as his continued popularity has shown, he’s likely not going anywhere anytime soon. Mayer has continued to grow his loyal fan following and expand his artistic horizons. Don’t miss out on your chance to experience the legend in the making; grab your John Mayer concert tickets today!
