Reflecting on the incident, Mayer said, "That was the moment the songwriter in me was born", and he penned his first lyrics the night he left the hospital.
With the help of local producer and engineer Glenn Matullo, Mayer recorded the independent EP Inside Wants Out.
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.
During this time, Aware concluded a deal with Columbia Records that gave Columbia first pick in signing Aware artists.
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.
He attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, but disenrolled and moved to Atlanta in 1997 with Clay Cook.
By the end of 2002, Room for Squares had spawned several radio hits, including "No Such Thing", "Your Body Is a Wonderland", and ultimately, "Why Georgia".
It also received general praise critically, and Mayer drew comparisons to Dave Matthews.
Mayer's secondary career pursuits extend to television hosting, comedy, and writing; he has authored columns for magazines such as Esquire.
He supports various causes and has performed at charity benefits.
