Short answer: an artist worth checking out.
I hadn’t felt like I had anything to blog about the last few months. In my last post I asked for new music recommendations and Steve (Teenage Rock Opera) kindly referred me to Mayer Hawthorne.
What does he sound like? Ultra-smooth vocals and sweet melodies in posh soul trimmings. Yeah, think Motown, but I’d get even more detailed and say he’s somewhere between the 60’s hook-laden sounds and the more mature 70’s soul. Hawethorne is solid listening. Check him out via WXPN’s World Cafe.
