John Mayer on Vocal Rest After Throat Surgery

Pop music sensation, John Mayer, just underwent a successful throat surgery to remove an inflamed granuloma near his vocal chord.

Mayer has been instructed not to strain his vocal chords for at least one month, which unfortunately means that he has to postpone finishing the recording of his new album, “Born and Raised”.

Last month, Mayer had to cancel several shows due to the medical issues he was experiencing with his throat. The singer attempted various non-surgical means, but all were unsuccessful.

“It’s been a very long process in waiting to see if time was an alternative to surgery, but even given two weeks’ voice rest (along with many other approaches), there was no change for the better,” Mayer posted on his blog last week.

“Born and Raised” is halfway complete, but it’s release will be pushed until next year. Mayer needs to fully recover before he can lay the final vocal tracks for the album.

While on vocal rest, the pop star plans to do some traveling in the U.S.

In a recent blog post, Mayer describes how strange it feels to be away from his music.

“I should be frustrated but I can’t seem to stop thinking about beautiful things. I never thought I’d be wishing I could do what I love again; I stay in at night, picking guitar parts off of records and dreaming of playing on the big stage.”
