Multi-platinum selling and Grammy award wining artist John Mayer makes his way to Tulsa this Friday night. The Battle Studies Tour swings by the BOK Center along with openers Owl City.
Mayer sites his initial desire to play guitar from watching Michael J. Fox play in Back to The Future and began playing around age 13. He soon after received a Stevie Ray Vaughn cassette tape from a neighbor and the rest, as they say, is history.
JM’s debut album Room for Squares originally an Internet only offering was re-released in September 2001 and garnered a Grammy for "Your Body is a Wonderland" and also spawned the hits, "No Such Thing" and "Why Georgia." Since that time he has released 3 other solo albums, Heavier Things, Continuum, and Battle Studies having won a total of 7 Grammy awards and also released an album by the John Mayer Trio, Try! which was nominated for Best Rock Album.
Mayer is a student of the blues and has played along side legends B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, John Scofield and Herbie Hancock to name a few. He is an obviously talented singer/songwriter with a penchant for the ladies and should have them swooning when his comes to town.
His passion for music is also seen in his continuous work for the VH1 Save The Music Foundation, an organization that works to save music programs in public schools.
This is one of those shows that is sure to have some surprises that you will not want to miss. From John’s soulful lyrics, to his amazing guitar playing it will be one for the ages.
