{these are my obsessions}
You got me swaying right along to the song in your heart.

There are few things I love more than JM singing along with his guitar riffs.



You know my paper heart, the one I filled with pencil marks? I think I might have gone and inked you in.

Little by little, inch by inch, we built a yard with a garden in the middle of it. It ain’t much but it’s a start, you got me swaying right along to the song in your heart. And a face to call home, you’ve got a face to call home.

This video really captures the essence of Born and Raised and John Mayer’s new look, style and sound. I love this whole “self-journey”, leaving LA and seeing the rest of the country, visiting guitar shops and changing the oil in your own car. I have always been a fan of this song, but the video really pulls everything together and is only making me more excited for the Born and Raised release next week! (PS - iTunes is streaming the whole album starting tonight at 9pm PST :)

Here’s a clip of the first single off Born and Raised, called “Shadow Days.” I’m excited to share the first bit of sound from the album… Been looking forward to a post like this since October 14, 2010, the first day I started writing this group of songs. Enjoy.



Officially back on track as of today. Doc says all clear. Ends an 8-month period of extreme patience and a real head trip… Back to it… See you soon.

All the Born and Raised potential videos in one place. Thank you for this awesome summary!

Something like Olivia - John Mayer

This is my favorite so far from John Mayer’s new “Born and Raised” album (Second to Whiskey Whiskey Whiskey). It appears to be very folky and almost Bob Dylan-like. This cool person (http://www.youtube.com/user/violetskyye) managed to catch this secret performance where he trialed out these new songs.
