John Mayer biography



From acoustic heart-throb to blues guitar hero!

John Mayer started out his recording career with Room For Squares in 2001. The acoustic hit single Your Body Is A Wonderland launched him to the world.

This was followed up with Daughters in 2003 on the album Heavier Things.

Now firmly established as a heartthrob, John went electric in 2006 with the revered album Continuum, a trio album with Steve Jordan (drums) and legendary Pino Palladino on bass.

Along with this, the live album Try! was released the same year. Here we find Belief, Gravity, and Vultures.

In just five years, John Mayer had successfully established himself as a heavyweight singer-songwriter, as well as an acoustic and electric guitarist.

He’s been recording and touring the world ever since.


Belief – Chords

changing their mind from, the paint on a sign.

Belief – Lyrics + Live performance

Is there anyone who, ever remembers
changing their mind from, the paint on a sign
Is there anyone who really recalls ever breaking rank at all
For something someone yelled real loud one time

Vultures – Chords

F#7sus2/4 | F#7sus2/4 |
Some of us, we’re hardly ever here,
F#7sus2/4 | F#7sus2/4 |
the rest of us, we’re born to disappear.

Vultures – Lyrics + Live performance

Some of us, we’re hardly ever here
The rest of us, we’re born to disappear
How do I stop myself from being just a number
How will I hold my head to keep from going under
