Born and raised in Bridgeport, Connecticut, John Mayer was introduced to music at an early age but wasn't
fully invested in it until he saw the famous scene Michael J Fox scene from Back to the Future involving intense guitar play.
From then on it seemed to be all that John could think about, prompting him to take to guitar and never look back. While he
had spent some time playing with a friend, it was when he decided to go solo and record his first independent EP, Inside Wants
Out, that things really started to look up. The EP drew attention and when John released an album only on the internet titled,
Room for Squares, he was signed almost immediately and had the album re-released. Room for Squares was a huge hit and sported
a bevy of hit singles like "Your Body is a Wonderland" that won him his first Grammy. From there he released "Heavier Things"
in 2003, which debuted at No. 1. But, after his initial success Mayer decided to take his music in a slightly different musical
direction. He integrated more of a blues sound in subsequent projects. Forming the John Mayer Trio, the group focused on rock
and blues and toured all over with great success. In 2006, came his third album, Continuum, which was nominated for a wide
range of Grammy Awards and dominated the charts. Since then he has released three more albums, Battle Studies, Born and Raised
and Paradise Valley, all of which have received rave reviews from critics and audiences alike.

John Mayer Trivia
No one starts at the top of the food chain, as is evidenced by almost
anyone who has had to work for their lot in life, John Mayer included. After graduating high school and in an attempt to make
some money to pursue his love of music, John Mayer began working for well over a year at a local gas station, far from the
glamour of where his future would take him. Why would someone with so much musical talent work at a gas station for fifteen
whole months, you ask? He did it all in order to make enough money to get a 1996 Fender Stevie Ray Vaughan Stratocaster, a
purchase that in the end was likely well worth the time. This wasn't the first guitar that John Mayer had, but it was easily
the nicest that he'd had up to that point, furthering his intrigue into the world of music.
