I never heard of Mayer Hawthorne until, DJ Michael Ealey of Streetwise Radio started playing him. I like this guy he is refreshing. He has that old school vibe. Mayer Hawthorne is from Ann Arbor, Michigan but he lives in Los Angeles. This 34 year old has a whole lot of talent. He is a singer, producer, songwriter, arranger, audio engineer, DJ, rapper and multi-instrumentalist. While listening to his songs it definitely has that Motown sound of the 50s and 60s. It is amazing that this Caucasian soul brother is not as well-known has these so called superstars. Mayer Hawthorne is wonderful talent with soul. He is definitely going on my playlist. Some of my favorite songs are, “The Walk”, “I Wish It Would Rain”, “Your Easy Lovin' Ain't Pleasin' Nothin' “, ”Maybe So Maybe No”, “Green Eyed Love”, “No Strings”, “One Track Mind” and “A Long Time”. You can listen to Mayer Hawthorne on Streetwise Radio. Also listen to Streetwise Radio on MyGen365, Live365, Athena365, iTunes and Pandora.
