From a gas station attendant to a music star, John Mayer is a major artist all across the world. As cheesy as it sounds, listening to Mayer’s music lifts my spirits. I will present to you a little of Mr. Mayer’s music background because he is so great to talk about! John Mayer was born on Oct. 16, 1977 in Connecticut. Mayer dropped out of college to pursue his dream and recorded his first album “Inside Wants Out”. Mayer then became a local performer at a local blues club in Atlanta, Georgia (one of my favorite songs was “Why Georgia”). Mayer then started his career and began to climb on the Billboard charts. Mayer’s first love in the music business was Jenner Love-Hewitt but it didn’t last long. Mayer’s first Grammy was in 2003 for “Your Body is a Wonderland”. Mayer proceeded to make inspiring music and tell the world, “The best feeling that I will ever have in my life is just walking, just being, the night that I finish a song.” Many other popular bands Mayer has toured with is Maroon 5, Counting Crows, The Wallflowers and Guster. His most recent album that just came out is called “As Is”. Mayer will continue to make good music and he loves to perform in front of a good audience.
I can honestly relate to every song he has ever written. His concert was the best concert I have ever been to. Many girls love John Mayer because they think he is “dreamy” or “sexy”. I love John Mayer because his lyrics and his soulful voice makes me happy. When I’m having a bad day, I put on John Mayer. When I get my feelings hurt, I listen to John Mayer. Rumors about John Mayer and his reputation of being a “womanizer” or a jerk don’t get to me because gossip happens because of jealousy. There was an interview he did with Rolling Stone magazine recently where he was over-sharing about his sexual relationships and how girls throw themselves at him- I don’t care about that. All I want is for him to keep singing, strumming his guitar and making glorious music. Ever use Pandora on the internet? Type in his name and you will not regret it. His songs play, but so do other musicians in the same genre. I listen to him every time I study, clean my room, or surf the net.
For me, a good song can speak to the soul. When I listen to one of his songs I picture what he is doing when he is singing and playing his guitar. Who he is with, what he is wearing, what he is thinking and what inspired him to write it. Did he just get dumped or lose a friend? Is he in love or does he want to go back to when he was young and care-free? Whenever some one asks me what song to play I always say John Mayer. His music just keeps getting better overtime. I can honestly say I know the words to almost ALL of his songs.
