John Mayer (Uncredited)

John Mayer

The consistency with which John Mayer combines word craft and melody has earned him rarefied status as a respected songwriter and musician. As one of few musicians to achieve both critical acclaim and popular appeal, the seven-time Grammy Award winner has earned accolades for each album release while selling in excess of 15 million albums worldwide. Mayer has exceeded expectations not only as a solo artist, guitar player, and songwriter but as a renowned collaborator, the front-man of a searing blues trio, and most recently, as a producer. In 2001, he made his acclaimed debut with Room for Squares, followed by Heavier Things in 2003. In 2005, he recruited power players Steve Jordan and Pino Palladio for John Mayer Trio and released a muscular, live blues album entitled Try! that was recorded during a six-week, cross-country theater tour.
