Even so, the album enjoyed a generally favorable reception, though was less commercially successful than his previous work.

After extensive treatments for his vocal problems—and a two-year hiatus—Mayer began performing as a singer again in January 2013, and that year released the album, Paradise Valley.

'" The album was commercially successful, and while it did not sell as well as Room for Squares, it peaked at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart.

With the help of local producer and engineer Glenn Matullo, Mayer recorded the independent EP Inside Wants Out.

The EP includes eight songs with Mayer on lead vocals and guitars.

By 2005, he was collaborating with blues artists such as B. He also won Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for "Waiting on the World to Change".

That album was followed by Battle Studies in 2009, a return to pop, with a number-one grossing tour.

It also received general praise critically, and Mayer drew comparisons to Dave Matthews.

In February 2003, Mayer released a live CD and DVD of a concert in Birmingham, Alabama titled Any Given Thursday, which included songs previously not recorded, such as "Man on the Side", "Something's Missing", and Covered in Rain".For the opening track, "Back To You", a full band was enlisted, including the EP's co-producer David "De La" La Bruyere on bass guitars.After including him in Aware Festival concerts and his songs on Aware compilations, in early 2001, Aware released Mayer's internet-only album titled, Room for Squares.After his appearance at the 2001 South by Southwest Festival, he was signed to Aware Records, and then Columbia Records, which released his first EP, Inside Wants Out.His following two full-length albums—Room for Squares (2001) and Heavier Things (2003)—did well commercially, achieving multi-platinum status.Together, they formed a short-lived two-man band called Lo-Fi Masters.
