John Mayer was born on October 16, 1977, in Connecticut. He is a singer, songwriter, producer, and guitarist. John is mostly famous for such hits as “Waiting on the World to Change”, “Say”, and “Heartbreak Warfare”. He holds a variety of awards, including seven Grammies.
When Meyer was in school, he learned how to play violin and clarinet. When John turned 13, his father rented a guitar so the boy could take music lessons from the local music storeowner. A neighbor gave young John a record of Stevie Ray Vaughan. After listening, Mayer got interested in blues. The movie Back to The Future made Mayer realize that he wanted to be a guitarist.
At 16, John started performing at the local clubs. When he got older, he joined the band Villanova Junction but didn’t stay there for too long.
At 19, John enrolled at Berklee College of Music in Boston. A year later, he quit school and moved to Georgia, where his friend Clay Cook formed a band LoFi Masters. The band performed at the local clubs. Soon Mayer had an argument with Cook and quit the band. John decided to pursue a solo career.
