Since his rise around the turn of the millennium, John Mayer has masterfully drawn a line between the worlds of pop, classic rock and more with a winning combo of smooth vocals and shredding guitar solos. Determined to make a solo career in music for himself after leaving his course at Berklee College of Music, Mayer made his debut in 2001 with Room For Squares, a bright and euphoric blast of acoustic-lead pop that featured head-turners such as ‘No Such Thing’ and sensitive goosebump raisers like ‘Your Body Is a Wonderland’. His gamble paid off as these songs hit the radio, and by 2003 had won his first Grammy award.
That same year he released his second album, Heavier Things, a breezy but emotionally-powered sophomore that incorporated different instrumental styles, such as the bright horns on its fan-favourite opener ‘Clarity’. The record also included ‘Daughters’, which garnered many awards including 2005’s Grammy award for Song of the Year. Though clearly a talented singer-songwriter, around this time people also began to realise Mayer’s guitar chops were exceptional, and his musical interests roamed way beyond the realms of contemporary pop; in 2005 alone he performed with the likes of Eric Clapton, B.B. King and Buddy Guy, as well as opening for the Rolling Stones with his bluesy John Mayer Trio. 10 years later he would fill in Jerry Garcia’s shoes in Dead & Company, featuring members of The Grateful Dead.
