Mayer Hawthorne, a very talented singer/songwriter from Detroit, Michigan, is doing his part to bring back that wonderful Motown sound. He started off his “show” exclaiming: “If you’re not dancing, move to the back”. Not very many people moved back because the whole room danced from start to finish.
It’s clear that Mayer Hawthorne drew from greats like: Barry White, Smokey Robinson, and Isaac Hayes when he wrote “Just Ain’t Gonna Work Out” and “Maybe So, Maybe No” for his 2009 album “A Strange Arrangement”.
If you enjoy Motown, you will certainly enjoy Mayer Hawthorne and The County.
