Mayer Hawthorne

(Lawl this man has a heart shaped vinyl, very orginial)

From Stone Throw's bio on Mayer Hawthorne (really the only information you really need to know what kind of music he makes):

Hawthorne has produced and played instruments for much of his life, but never intended to become a singer. He isn’t formally trained, and never sang in the church choir or in any of the bands he was in before founding the County (formerly the County Commissioners). But here he is, new school soul sensation, who has taken the Motown assembly-line production model and eliminated nearly every element but himself and a few hired hands. “I think Mayer is the only artist in the history of the label that I’ve signed after hearing only two songs,” says Peanut Butter Wolf. “Sometimes, you just know it’s the right thing to do.”

I am posting what is 4 songs, which are the only songs he has out as of now, but I have played out these songs so many times because they are very good. Soulful shit you won't find anywhere else unless you fire up a John Bulton record, something of the like. Mayer Hawthorne will be going places and once you hear these songs you'll know why. He will soon have an LP released 9/9/09. I am the first one in line to get it.
