You’ve got to love this guy. Mayer Hawthorne grew up in Ann Arbor, MI and was heavily influenced by the soul of the Motor City. His debut album is packed with retro sounding gems that Berry Gordy would be proud of. He does it ‘cause he loves it and we expect Mayer to garner a lot of attention in the coming year.
