Mayer Hawthorne apparently always had love for music, but by the time he actually got signed around 2006, he still hasn’t had any previous vocal training. So I guess you can say Mayer is a natural.
Besides being an awesome singer, you can add producing, songwriting, arranging, audio engineering, spinning records and rapping to his multi faceted skills. His musical influences he draws from artists like Curtis Mayfield, Isaac Hayes, Barry White, Smokey Robinson and many more… You can tell by Mayer’s throwback sound, however, he is open to all sorts of genres and actually producing parts of his upcoming album with beat wizzard Pharrell Williams.
We love this guy’s music because it’s unexpected, fresh, funky and Mayer Hawthorne also loves putting creative music videos out there. Enough reason to expose him to a few more music lovers! Enjoy!
