If you think that John Mayer is some douchebag pop dude with an acoustic guitar, Mayer himself might (jokingly) admit you’re correct. However, if you haven’t listened to John Mayer Trio or the tracks off his last EP The Search For Everything - Wave Two, you might be selling yourself short on some very good music you will probably enjoy.
Sure, he burst into pop culture consciousness with “Your Body Is A Wonderland,” which won him a Grammy back in 2003 for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, and he continues to write music that most people will judge him for, but haters gonna hate. And Mayer’s gonna do him. And um, BTW, that new record The Search for Everything might be the perfect pop-leaning album so maybe save that millionth spin of Radiohead and peep Mayer’s new shit.
