Featured Artist: Mayer Hawthorne

 

He's a white guy from Ann Arbor Michigan with a voice and style that comes together like Smokey Robinson meets J Dilla. His name is Mayer Hawthorne, and he's just another cat on board the retro soul train. Peanut Butter Wolf, the head of Stone Throws, stated that Mayer Hawthorne might have been the first person "I signed after hearing only two tracks." Besides singing, Hawthorne does all the musical arrangements as well. Talk about talent. I haven't been able to put my finger on it, but I swear "Just Ain't Gonna Work Out," is a cover--it's THAT retro. Meanwhile, tracks like "Maybe Yes Maybe No," have a soulful sound that is embedded with hip hop drum patterns. Mayer Hawthorne is currently on his first US tour, and is definitely worth a look.
