Freshmen 5 Spring 2010: Mayer Hawthorne

  by mtvU.

Drawing upon the influence of great soul artists such as Barry White and Issac Hayes, Mayer Hawthorne is becoming well known for the feel of his throw-back retro sound. Originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan, Hawthorne is an artist who is dedicated to timeless rhythm and classic appeal. This is the perfect music to play for that special someone on a rainy day.
