John Mayer singer-songwriter, virtuoso guitarist, solo artist, member of Dead & Co &definitely the funniest speaker at Variety’s Hitmakers event last December has signed with CAA in all areas globally
It’s not the first major change Mayer has made on the business side this year. In early March, he publicly announced he was leaving his longtime label home, Columbia Records.
After 21 years, eight studio albums, and some wonderful personal and creative relationships,
I have decided not to renew my recording agreement with Columbia Records, he wrote in a social media post at the time.
Hard as it is to say goodbye, I’m excited to pursue new avenues of making music, both of my own and with other artists.
I love music more than ever, and I believe some of my best work still lies ahead. With gratitude and enthusiasm, John.
That move was particularly surprising because Mayer had just been singing the praises of Columbia at a Variety event less than three months earlier.
Mayer has won seven Grammy Awards out of 19 nominations and since his 2001 debut album “Room for Squares” has earned three No. 1 debuts on the Billboard Top 200,
With the triple-platinum “Heavier Things” (2003), double-platinum “Battle Studies” (2009), and gold-certified “Born and Raised” (2012).
He has sold an estimated 20 million-plus albums worldwide. He was previously with WME.
