Mayer grew up in Fairfield, Connecticut, where he became a fan of classic blues guitarists."I was 15 years old, with my room plastered with posters of Stevie Ray Vaughan and as many Albert King photos as I could have, which wasn't many," he told Chris Willman of Entertainment Weekly ."Bonnie Raitt, Jimmie Vaughan, Robert Cray—these were like my buddies." He briefly attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, where an overdose of intense guitar performances drove him to explore soft, melodic ballads.In 1998, after he dropped out, he moved to Atlanta, where he became a frequent performer at music clubs such as Eddie's Attic.While in Atlanta, Mayer released his first album, Inside Wants Out , a mostly acoustic affair that stressed lyrics more than musical hooks.He appeared at the prestigious South by Southwest Music Festival in March of 2000, and his performance there won him a contract with the Columbia Records subsidiary Aware Records.He went into the studio in late 2000 to record his major-label debut with a full band and producer John Alagia, who had previously worked with Dave Matthews—a musician to whom Mayer would often be compared early in his career.
In four years, he won five Grammy Awards, including three for best male pop vocal performance.
Combined with his romantic lyrics, his looks and 6-foot-3 frame quickly led him to heartthrob status. "If you can see inside my brain and what I'm trying to do onstage, the last thing that comes to mind is [to] make people swoon," he told Molly Priesmeyer of Knight-Ridder/Tribune News Service.
Though Mayer titled his follow-up album Heavier Things , critics dubbed it another soft, pleasant, but not edgy affair.

Other writers took note of the appearances of jazz trumpeter Roy Hargrove and ?uestlove, drummer for the Roots, as signs that Mayer was testing his boundaries.
