Freebie Friday: Mayer Hawthorne

Another addition of Freebie Friday, another dope selection.  This week’s choice is a double helping of goodness. 2 tracks from Mayer Hawthorne.

We had the opportunity to check his band at the basement lounge of the Drake Hotel, and were thoroughly impressed. Great performer, especially in such an intimate environment.

Here’s some Wiki on him:

Mayer Hawthorne is a singer, producer, songwriter, arranger, audio engineer, DJ, rapper and multi-instrumentalist based in Los Angeles, California, USA.

Born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA, Hawthorne moved to Los Angeles after being signed to LA based Stones Throw Records by label head Peanut Butter Wolf.

Mayer Hawthorne draws influence from the music of Curtis Mayfield , Isaac Hayes, Leroy Hutson, Mike Terry, Barry White, Smokey Robinson and the legendary songwriting and production trio of Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland, and Edward Holland, Jr. (known collectively as Holland–Dozier–Holland).

Enjoy.
