Baltimore will be host to John Mayer's concert on Saturday December 14 at the Arena. This event is part of a long series of concerts that are part of his year-long Paradise Valley Tour that started early this year. The international tour which has had audiences from Argentina, Brazil, to Denmark will eventually end on the Oceanic country of Australia.
Before Mr. Mayer's last stop, Baltimore may be able to listen to what this examiner considers one of his poignant songs, "I will be found(Lost at Sea)." David Gray's voice suddenly becomes similar to John Mayer's voice- Melancholic, tender, strong, and a little husky. Additionally, Paradise Valleys includes melodies where country sounds have been refined. Wildfire has an uplifting beat that includes a variety of sounds that is characteristic of this artist. His mastery of the guitar and the fine tune of the instrument gets better with each passing year.
Gone are the days when Daughters was composed and aired on national and international radios. The musician marked his signature in the minds of many soft heart-felt listeners. Mr. Mayer's new album although refined, perfected, and melodic, lacks his original signature. One moment you may think you are listening to Neil Young and the next track you may be listening to a Coldplay tune. His global influences have drowned his unique sound instead of accentuated it. Perhaps he may find himself in Baltimore. In any case, Enjoy!
