The consistency with which John Mayer combines word craft and melody has earned him rarefied status in popular culture as a genuine and respected songwriter and musician. Since his acclaimed debut in 2001 with Room For Squares, each release has earned John Mayer additional accolades. Through 2003′s Heavier Things, his work with John Mayer Trio in 2005, Continuum’s 2006 release and now, Battle Studies, John Mayer has established himself as a musician and collaborator who exceeds genre boundaries. The guitarist, vocalist and songwriter has earned seven Grammy Awards and sold nearly 12.5 million albums worldwide.

In May 2007, Time Magazine placed John Mayer on their Time 100 list of the most influential contemporary thinkers, leaders, artists and entertainers. For two consecutive years, Rolling Stone Magazine featured John Mayer on the cover of their annual “Guitar” issue – first with the May 2008 “Living Guitar Legends” issue and then as part of February 2007′s “Guitar Heroes” round-ups featuring Mayer with peers and icons alike.

Mayer’s latest album, Battle Studies, is the fourth studio album from the seven-time Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter/guitar player/producer and incorporates the warmth, melodies and simplicity of 70s and 80s 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 and will be released on November 17th on Columbia Records.

Michael Franti’s latest CD, All Rebel Rockers, is not only the highest Billboard Top 200 Album chart debut of his career, it has been on that chart longer than any other Franti CD.  The CD’s smash “Say Hey (I Love You)” is expected to be a certified digital platinum single by the end of this month.  Appearances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and other national television outlets have served to drive the more than 3.1 million YouTube views for “Say Hey (I Love You).”
