It is difficult to find the words to properly describe Cautious Clay’s “Context Tour.” Pretty damn amazing seems about right but is admittedly not all that eloquent. Well, however you choose to describe the Ones To Watch–presented tour, it is safe to say that we never expected those string of words to contain, “Hey, do you remember that time when Cautious Clay brought out John Mayer?”

During his headlining show at The Fonda in Los Angeles, ex-real estate agent turned critically-acclaimed artist Cautious Clay brought out a close friend and collaborator that stopped both us and the crowd in our tracks. Joined by none other than the legendary aforementioned Mayer, the duo performed a series of songs together, including “Swim Home.” The single, which they co-wrote and produced together, appears on the 13 Reasons Why soundtrack and is all the more spellbinding live.

With Cautious Clay’s headlining “Context Tour” coming to a close December 14 at Union Transfer in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, we could not think of a better send-off than this live video. Here’s to the next tour, which will hopefully just feature Mayer playing accompanying guitar at each and every stop.
