Mayer Hawthorne

Ann Arbor, Michigan native and longtime eclectic DJ/producer Andrew Cohen, onetime member of the rap groups Athletic Mic League and Now On, began recording soul-seeped material as something of a joke, but didn't plan to have it reach beyond his circle of friends and family. Mayer Hawthorne, the pseudonym Cohen used for the songs, eventually took on a life of its own. When a couple of Hawthorne songs were played for Peanut Butter Wolf, the Stones Throw label head was baffled; he initially thought he was hearing re-edits of obscure late-'60s/early-'70s soul singles, not the work of a multi-instrumentalist who laid everything down himself. Subsequently signed to Stones Throw, Cohen debuted Hawthorne with "Just Ain't Gonna Work Out" b/w "When I Said Goodbye," a pair of scratchy and bittersweet tales of heartache, on red heart-shaped 7" vinyl. A 12" featuring a cover of New Holidays' obscure 1969 single "Maybe So Maybe No" followed shortly thereafter, preceding the full-length A Strange Arrangement, released in October 2009. After a live set (Stones Throw Direct to Disc #1) and a couple single releases, Hawthorne released his second album, How Do You Do, for Universal Republic in October 2011. Where Does This Door Go followed on the label in 2013 and added some '70s and '80s flavors to the singer's mix of retro sounds. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi

One great voice and a great musical style.
saw him in Richmond in 2011 with chromeo and Raleigh in 2012 with breakbot. both good shows. I am not sure where this 3rd album is going but his stuff with tuxedo is AMAZING! check out the 3 song EP called tuxedofunk -- I truly hope continues the Motown and 80s funk vibes
i saw him perform at the bluebird in bloomington, in last summer, and it was amazing. he is very light hearted and joking during his shows, loves to interact with the crowd, and his voice beats most of the recordings. he is phenomenal.
White dude killing classic R&B I love every song I've heard
I am a 36 year- old Chicana, who loves old soul music aka underground oldies....I got my great taste in music from my mom...she turned me on to Mayer Hawthorne and I played one of his songs for my 14 year-old son....and we are both HOOKED!!! Thank you mom.....we
wow!! my nephew turned me on to this and i cant believe that there is still someone who can put it down like they did in the 70s! fan for life
I'm late to this party, but I've been hooked since The Walk. It brings me back to a really good place.

Went to NZ concert, awesome!
Seen him twice in Seattle. Puts on a great show, and his voice is even better live. I'm going to see him everytime for now on.
put on a private concert for a conference I attended in Indianapolis . the band and mixing were awesome. his voice is even better in real life than on most of these recordings.
I love him.
