Let’s talk about this man for a minute. Who is John Mayer? Although the question might be fanciful, he is the voice of many hopeless romantics out there who are trying to find a face to call home in the center of this beautiful universe.
Now, if that doesn’t tell you who, John Mayer is perhaps this will help you better understand the man, he has collaborated with hundreds of artist well outside his music genre, from Eric Clapton, to Jay-Z, Frank Ocean, to B. B. King, from Common to Tony Bennett, and the list goes on and on. The man is not only an outstanding musician, but the best of his kind; he’s notorious for breaking hearts, and restoring millions with the soft sound of his poetic writing.
7 time GRAMMY winner, Mayer has taken awards for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for “Your Body Is a Wonderland”, Song Of The Year — songwriter for “Daughters”, Best Male Pop Vocal Performance — artist for “Daughters”, Best Pop Vocal Album for Continuum, Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for “Waiting on the World to Change”, Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance for “Gravity” from Where The Light Is – Live In Los Angeles, Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for “Say” (From The Bucket List), He is an advocate for the NCIRE-The Veterans Health Research Institute is the leading nonprofit research institute in the United States devoted to advancing Veterans health research, and countless other organizations, WOW…that was a mouth full.
John not only holds rank as one of the most successful musicians in an industry where music is easy to download at no charge, but he’s also maintained true not only to his craft but to his loyal fans.
Yeah, by now you’ve probably heard about, Frank Ocean and if you haven’t then you’re missing out on some serious sex making music. Now, if you are not into that kind of thing, then I guys you are not missing anything, so just go about your business as I sit here, and listen to his music over and over and over again.
John Mayer was honored at the GRAMMY’s on the Hill event last night in DC, where he spoke about his voice feeling, “OK”, but he’s not capable of singing just yet. Throat surgery is in the near future for John who said, ”I’m going to be taking myself out of the running for a good six months.” Don’t fret John, we will be… Perfectly Waiting.
Mayer has been posting a new picture every day this past week for his fan’s who are looking forward to the release of John’s video for, ‘Shadow Days’ set to be posted tomorrow Friday the 27th, 2012.
U.S. health and human services secretary Kathleen Sebelius (L) and National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences President Neil Portnow (R) present John Mayer with an award at GRAMMYs on the Hill Awards at The Liaison Hotel on April 25, 2012 in Washington, DC.
looks great in just about anything. Yesterday at GRAMMYs on the Hill, John Mayer talked music education & veterans health.
Jackie Chanel has a big heart, and it shows by donating the profits of ‘Untitled’, to NCIRE. I found Jackie Chanel, 2.5 years ago on twitter, we were among the lucky 4.5 million followers, following the guitar ninja also known as, John Mayer. After getting to talking beyond 140 characters, both Jackie and I realized we had more than just John Mayer in common, she’s also a writer. Right after Mayer cancelled his spring tour due to his granuloma this year, which caused for ‘Born and Rise’, (the sixth studio album) to get pushed back last October, Jackie jumped into fan girl mood quick. She needed to do something to show her support, she wanted to do more for the musician, whose music has touched the lives of so many of us. Mayer is a advocate for ’The Veterans Health Research Institute’, and all of his fans are behind him in supporting this beautiful cause. Won’t you join us in supporting NCIRE as well?
NCIRE – The Veterans Health Research Institute has one mission and one goal: Veterans Health. We are the leading nonprofit research institute in the United States devoted to advancing Veterans health research.

Meet Tobias, a 27 year old beautiful man from Malmoe, Sweden, and also a very dear, and personal friend of mine. I came across Tobias last year on JMMA Group, and the rest has been HIS-story.
Tobias took to music from a very young age playing with a local band by the name of “Supernatural”, who later changed their name to “Siren” when signed to Warner Music in 2003. Their single “In A Vision” made it to the swedish charts, but the band decided to part ways after a 10 year run.
He took some time off from making music to work on personal growth, but something inside Tobias aimed him towards music again in 2010, this time as a solo act. In 2011, he wrote a song, inspired by a heartfelt story of a dear friend of ours, who has lost one child to cancer, and is right now fighting everyday for her other daughter’s life. This song ‘Even Angels Cry’ was intended only for our dear friend, but then that was shared, and then others began to take notice, and they to share it with others, and by the time we all turned around, the song was released to a local Swedish radio stations, taking it to the top of the music charts.
Tobias will be dropping the album to ‘Even Angels Cry’ later this year, but in the meantime go like him on facebook!
Seems like the universe outside of JMMA has been missing John Mayer as well. I never thought that the boy who the world looked on as an “Open Mouth & Inserted Foot” type of guy would be causing such a commotion regarding his return to the music scene. This year John will be performing in SXSW, it’s been close to 12 years since he was last seen at the SXSW music conference, this would also be his first show since having to cancel on several events, including putting his 5th studio album on hold due to a granuloma he had removed in October of last year.
John will also be performing in the New Orleans Jazz Fest in April, and tickets are available for both events. It’s been quite the year for Mr. John Mayer, who took to travel the country in in silence for the search of inner peace, and now that the wait is finally over I am super excited for a summer tour. John always gives the best summer tours, and knowing that he’s done some heavy soul searching, brings a sense that this will top Battle Studies summer tour for sure, I feel it deep inside my heart.
Lets take a look back at some of the most interesting moments in John Mayer History, as we step forward into the future of an icon who is leaving his mark on the rest of you, and finally accepted for his talent.
Steve Jordan has worked with numerous artists from Eric Clapton, Aretha Franklin, to Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones, but only one artist stands out more than all the rest for me, and that is none other than the virtuoso, John Mayer. Steve joined the John Mayer Trio back in 2005, taking Mayer’s music to all new heights. He produced Continuum alongside John, and ventured off into the world of musical bliss for the next five years, but not before bringing to an end the most beautiful winter tour yet, Battle Studies ’09-’10. He parted ways right before the summer tour began, by letting everyone know that he was going to take a break, due to not wanting to be on a tour bus for the rest of his life… however I’m sure we’ll see more of Steve Jordan sooner than not. He’s just too talented to stay in doors!
So this year I have decided not to buy a costume for Halloween. Instead of driving myself insane I have chosen to pick one from past Halloweens, and this year I’ll be recycling my daughters Alice in Wonderland’s dress. How do I look?
Traditions in my house had always consisted of heading to the pumpkin patch, dressed in our Halloween’s best, to pick out the biggest pumpkin there. Last year I swore I would never put myself through that again, after walking around in the heat or slight breeze depending on what mood mother nature was in that Fall. I had ended up with a million and one pictures hoping to find the perfect one for our annual Halloween cards & nothing! This too was suspended rather quickly. Every year a pumpkin would come in to the home, and the children wanted nothing to do with the decor: the older they got the less Jack o’lantern it looked. So this too became obsolete. Until this year, where I decided to buy a pumpkin, and dedicated to music! What do you think?
I went to the inter web to see what I could find, and what I came across was spectacular. There are some really fun looking pumpkins out there dedicated to peoples favorite bands, and musician… take a look!!
This one is inspired by John Mayer’s heart Break logo for the Battle Studies winter/summer tour.
This one was done by Michele showing her fangirl love for the band Colourslide
Tonight I will be heading to Tobacco Road for their Halloween batch hosted by Queen Of the Scene, to watch 7Seas rock the joint & then I’m off to the Billiard Club in Miami Lakes for the force that is, FALSETA!
I want to wish an early Mothers Day to all Mothers, New Moms to be, son’s and daughter’s. Don’t forget that Sunday isn’t the only day to celebrate our special ladies, they should be honored everyday of their lives.
