John Mayer plays KeyArena tomorrow night, Wednesday March 31st. I am there. I am so there. His most famous song might be the Grammy-winning Your Body Is a Wonderland, but he’s released a lot excellent live and studio-recorded music, including 2009’s Battle Studies. His newest CD includes Heartbreak Warfare, a song I listen to tons. Mayer manages to be positive and sinuous without being precious. He can do this because he is talented and earnest: If you want more love, why don’t you say so? I’d most easily describe his music as blues, though it’s got an appropriate enough pop side to it as well. What I am most looking forward to is some gorgeous guitar playing and a sleek voice to match.
