If you haven’t heard of Mayer Hawthorne — you will. This Detroit area musician is gaining momentum with his album How Do You Do That, which is being described as a new take on “Motion City Soul”. It’s amazing to see how great music never really dies. Through young artists today, like Mayer Hawthorne, a new generation of listeners can experience great jazz, funk & soul. Mayer Hawthorne is currently on tour. Check out www.mayerhawthorne.com for dates. My fellow Nashvillies – Catch Mayer at Mercy Lounge on May 1st! I know I’ll be there 😉
Check out this Solid Gold/Soul Train influenced video for Mayer Hawthorne’s song “A Long Time”. It’s both hilarious and an awesome jam!
