John Clayton Mayer (born October 16, 1977) is an American singer-songwriter, guitarist and producer. He was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and raised in nearby Fairfield. He attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, but disenrolled and moved to Atlanta, Georgia, in 1997 with Clay Cook. Together, they formed a short-lived, two-man band called Lo-Fi Masters. After their split, Mayer continued to play local clubs—refining his skills and gaining a following. After his appearance at the 2001 South by Southwest Festival, he was signed to Aware Records, and then Columbia Records, which released his first EP, Inside Wants Out. His following two full-length albums—Room for Squares (2001) and Heavier Things (2003)—did well commercially, achieving multi-platinum status. In 2003, he won the Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for the single "Your Body Is a Wonderland".

Profile Bio Text
Mayer has a number of tattoos. These include: "Home" and "Life" (from the song title) on the back of his left and right arms respectively, "SRV" (for his idol Stevie Ray Vaughan), "77" (his year of birth) on the left side of his chest, a dragon-like figure on his left inner arm and a koi-like fish on his right shoulder. In 2003, he got a tattoo of three squares on his right forearm, which, he has explained, he will fill in gradually. As of 2007, two are filled.
He is an avid collector of watches, and owns timepieces costing into the tens of thousands of dollars. Mayer also has an extensive collection of sneakers, estimated (in 2006) at over 200 pairs. Although he`s never been diagnosed by a medical professional, Mayer experiences music ¨ color synesthesia, or the sensation of "hearing colors," which he mentioned in a Rolling Stone interview.
Mayer dated Jennifer Love Hewitt briefly in 2002. In a comedy routine in May 2006, he joked they never consummated their relationship; he later apologized to her for the raunchy routine. Despite rumors to the contrary, Mayer did not date Heidi Klum in 2003. Mayer dated Jessica Simpson for about nine months, beginning in the summer of 2006. Rumors started in August of that year with a People magazine article, but kicked into high gear when Mayer and Simpson spent New Year`s holiday together in New York City, both attending Christina Aguilera`s New Years Eve party. On the red carpet of the 2007 Grammy Awards, Ryan Seacrest asked Mayer about his relationship with Simpson, but Mayer cryptically responded in Japanese. Despite some initially conflicting translations, he said "Jessica is a lovely woman, and I`m glad to be with her." Simpson also accompanied Mayer for several dates of his 2007 Continuum tour, and the two went on a trip to Rome in March of that year. However, the couple split in May 2007.
Mayer currently resides in a suburb of Los Angeles with his roommate and sound engineer Chad Franscoviak. He also has an apartment in New York City.
