John Mayer's New: "Somebody Loves You" & Lyrics

Verse 1
You and I, we were born out of the same page.
When we found our way to one another, we were bleeding from the same vein
Sometimes you left to go off to sleep without me
Now you can breathe some, you can sing when you're lonely

Somebody loves you
Somebody loves you
Somebody loves you
Somebody loves you.

Verse 2
Sometimes i think this is not your first dance across a lifeline
Tell it to the afterlife and ghosts that came before us, at the same time.
Sooner or later the winds gonna take you where i roam
When you want to pretend that we lose in the end, baby please don't.


When you're losing light, at the end of the day,
Feeling last in the line to l
When you feel like your heart is constant display
Fall into your arms and remember to say

Chorus 2
Somebody loves me x 4

You and I, we were born out of the same page.
When we found our way to one another, we were bleeding for the same thing.

the ONLY JB you need to follow.

Mark your calendars for March 24.

I haven't been this excited about an album since John Mayer's "Battle Studies." One of the most amazing friends i've ever had the privilege to meet and call a brother, Jesse Barrera is most definitely someone to keep an eye on. He's spent the last couple months composing masterpieces, solo w/ the occasional backup, and has created chemistry that even a full band couldn't achieve...and it will leave you speechless. Support the independent talents and buy his album on Amazon & iTunes, along w/ merch!! March 24!

album teaser:

Music video production for "tangled up" is in motion

Support one of the most talented musicians in the world.

smooth melody

Hey CafeJammers! Sorry it's been a while, but i'm back with an artist that i've been listening to and admiring a lot lately. Involved in a car accident at 19, she was suggested to use music-therapy to help her heal easier and since then, it's become a passion of hers.She's now one of my favorite jazz vocalists/artists i've ever come across, with her sultry smooth voice and ear for melodies (no pun intended). If you're a fan of the classy jazz vibe, here's Melody Gardot to sway you to sleep.
*Big thank you to my favorite dork Melissa Polinar for showing me!

Melody Gardot's "Goodnite" (one of my favorite songs for a while now; in love with it.)

She's also a flawless, charismatic live performer. Here's "Goodnite" live @ Nice Jazz Festival

"Baby I'm a Fool"

Stay Classy,

Lonlies & Lovebirds

Hey everyone, happy Valentine's day, or Single's Awareness! Whether or not you have a significant other, you'll always have at least one person in your life who will love you as much, if not more, than you love them. Embrace it!

Also, it shouldn't stop you from enjoying a new music video recently put out for Kina Grannis' single, "Valentine." With a simple, yet amazing concept, catchy melody, and genuine beauty the video is a must see! And a guaranteed smile.


Also, if that wasn't enough...have to check out a cover done by 3 of my favorites who make me feel incredibly lucky to simply be friends with them!

Jennifer J Chung, Melissa Polinar, and Alyssa Bernal's cover! Talk about triple threat.

Have a great day, and show someone you love them. Friends, family, pets, etc. !

Clara C What?

Hey guys! Been a while since i put some fresh voices into your head so here's one of my favorites! Met her backstage one day, heard her sing, and knew she was something special. Smooth, strong vocals, production skills, and amazing unique musicianship, here's Clara C. You may seen/heard her from ISA '09, or kollaboration but if you haven't, keep an eye out. She's got what it takes.

Clara's mashup

Her amazing twist on Paramore's "Misery Business," which won her the ISA spot!

Look her up on youtube for some live performances, and be sure to subscribe @ for more! Tell her i sent you (Richard.)

Wizard Smoke

Beautifully shot, this video from SALAZAR literally captures moving art in skateboarding. By covering the skaters and their boards with a combination of tempera powdered paint and flour, the "smoke," each move was freely exaggerated.

Clouds of colors trailed in mid air, some old school skating, a fitting soundtrack, and toned videography. (featuring, Bradley Sheppard, Alien, Nate Lacoste, Chris Connolly, Nate Roline, Stacy Gabriel, Desmond Hoostie, Mike Klinkhamer, and Rob Rickaby) What more can you ask for?
