CONTINUUM is a pop/rock album showcasing Mayer's influences, rich lyrics, the groove of the guitar-slinging bluesman, and the soulful vocals. CONTINUUM earned four stars from Rolling Stone Magazine; USA Today wrote, Mayer's 'smartly crafted third album combines singer/songwriter pop and sinewy guitar blues;' and the New York Times weighed in, 'Mayer has been writing songs again, good ones, with all the leanness and directness that distinguish his strongest work.' CONTINUUM was co-produced by John Mayer and Steve Jordan and includes the #1 hit 'Waiting On The World To Change,' and its follow-up single, 'Belief.' The album features sultry grooves such as 'I Don't Trust Myself With Loving You,' 'Slow Dancing In A Burning Room,' and the Sam Cooke- flavored 'I'm Gonna Find Another You.' Fans of the John Mayer Trio will recognize 'Vultures' and 'Gravity' reworked for the studio by John, Steve, and Pino, as well as a blazing display of fretwork on Jimi Hendrix's 'Bold As Love.' Longtime fans will recognize 'Heart of Life' and 'Stop This Train' as trademark Mayer material.
A musician and collaborator who exceeds genre boundaries, Mayer famously toured and recorded with power players Pino Palladino and Steve Jordan as the John Mayer Trio, whose live album TRY! was released in November '05. Mayer 's other collaborations -- from Rock to Blues, Hip-Hop to Jazz to Country -- include Eric Clapton, BB King, Buddy Guy, T-Bone Burnett, Herbie Hancock, Dixie Chicks, Kanye West, Alicia Keys, and Ahmir ?uestlove. From his acclaimed debut 'Room For Squares' in 2001, through 2003's 'Heavier Things,' to his most recent work with the John Mayer Trio, the guitarist, vocalist and songwriter has sold more than eight million albums and earned three Grammy Awards.
