Released on Aware/Columbia Records in September 2001, John Mayer's Room For Squares has been one of the biggest new artist success stories of the year. The album steadily worked its way up the charts, driven in part by fan word-of-mouth and the multi-format (Top 40 Mainstream, Top 40 Adult, Modern Adult, AAA, Hot AC) success of the singles "No Such Thing" and, most recently, "Your Body Is A Wonderland," which was a Hot Shot Debut (at #63) on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Room For Squares was certified RIAA double platinum as of December 5, 2002. Inside Wants Out, John's 1999 independent release, was recently released on Columbia Records and debuted at #22 on the Billboard 200 best-selling album chart.

John has enjoyed great critical acclaim for both his live performances and Room For Squares, which earned a "four star" review in Rolling Stone. He's been singled out as one of Rolling Stone's "10 Artists To Watch/The Next Wave" and as a "Breakout Musician" in USA Today. Spin called John Mayer one of the magazine's "Bands To Watch," and in this year's Vanity Fair music issue, John is one of the "Next Big Things." John Mayer was interviewed by Sir Elton John, one of his biggest fans, in the April 2002 issue of Interview magazine.

John Mayer has recently completed a sold-out headline concert tour of the United States.
