Mayer Hawthorne Coming to Nashville!

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 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!
