“It turns out we’re just not all that special, when you break it down. Beautifully unspectacular, actually.”

“And you look in the mirror one day and you go ‘well, it’s not exactly what I was thinking about, but I’ll take it.”

— John Mayer

Well, that’s a wrap on release week promotion for Born and Raised. It’s so phenomenally weird to wake up this morning at home and not in the back of a bus somewhere. On the bright side, releasing this album and getting back in touch with my fans has been something I’ve been waiting to experience for a long time now. I’m finally at a place in my life where I can truly appreciate the kindness and support, and you have shown me lots of it. Thank you for that.
As I understand it, the album is set to enter the charts at number one, which is just incredible on all your parts because there has been very little I’ve been able to do to promote it. In a world of schemes and strategies when it comes to selling something, you guys just bought music you trusted you’d like. You picked it up in the same way I made it… from the heart, no trickery. That is so cool and rare and all the marketeers in the world together can’t manufacture that. I am very grateful to you. 
The making of this record was purposely undocumented, but there are a few iPhone videos and some photos to share. I figure I’ll do that here, and more often than I usually have in the past. Even if this album slides off the charts in a month, it doesn’t make it any less special to me, and we should all be digging this music together, like we would have (and will again) on stage.
Stay tuned…
with thanks and love
John

I guess the definition of a tall glass of water has never seemed more appropriate, right? 


And boy, am I thirsty!

There is so much JM on my dash now, I love it :) He’s back. He is fucking back. 

The smile says it all, doesn’t it?

But I have a major stalkerish obsession with John Mayer. Oh, the things I would do to him….

Get in line sister, get in line…

Hi everyone,

After several months of going week to week monitoring and hoping to correct the condition, I am forced to cancel my upcoming singing engagements due to something next to my vocal cords called a granuloma.

I’m bummed to have to bow out of both the iheartradio Music Festival in Las…

 In music, the quiet times, rests and pauses are just as important as the sounds.  The pauses build expectation and wonder, and make us appreciate the next note.  I hope John sees this time as just a pause in his melody and if what they say about the power of happy thoughts and positive energy is true, he’ll be back in tune in no time!
