Mr. Mayer is an astonishing blues guitarist, both in his technical gifts and in his ability to make those gifts appear accessible. – New York Times

“It was an impressive display of his sharp guitar playing, appealing sing-alongs and personable wit, and the audience responded generously.” –

“…for two hours, he thrilled fans with high-energy vocals, superb and innovative guitar playing, and light-hearted banter.” – The Oklahoman
“He certainly has the scary-good guitar chops to try anything, whether it’s the smooth and effortless, funky vibe of ‘Vultures’ or the edgy rock build-up of ‘Assassin’ or the smoky blues-bar interlude on his cover of ‘Ain’t No Sunshine.’” – Grand Rapids Press

“Mayer was in good spirits, seemingly self-possessed by the music, grooving to his own guitar playing, enjoying the sound of his fellow musicians and singing like the words mattered to him.” – Minneapolis Star Tribune

“… there’s no question that the guy can play guitar. It’s not for nothing that such revered ax men as B.B. King and Eric Clapton have given Mayer their imprimatur.” – Philadelphia Inquirer

“Performing for more than 12,000 fans with a killer seven-piece band, Mayer has surely grown into his stage persona. He’s equal parts quirky and smooth, earnest and confident. And he has a hearty body of work to draw from.” – Dallas Morning News

Battle Studies was released in November, 2009 on Columbia Records and debuted at #1. It is his fourth studio album from the seven-time Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter/guitar player/producer and incorporates the warmth, melodies and simplicity of 70’s and 80’s California rock and pop. Battle Studies is a confessional, relaxed and liberated album recorded in a private home in California where Mayer lived and worked over the course of six months before wrapping at the famed Capitol Studios in Los Angeles. The album was co-produced by John Mayer and Steve Jordan.
