Mayer Hawthorne – “A Strange Arrangment”/”Just Ain’t Gonna Work Out”

with one comment

Mayer Hawthorne is a 31-year old singer/songwriter/producer signed to Stones Throw Records. When you see the photo above, you may not be able to categorize what type of music you are about to hear. Think classic R&B in the vein of 60s/70s era Motown soul. Mayer Hawthorne draws his influence from music such as Curtis Mayfield, Isaac Hayes, Leroy Hutson, Barry White, Smokey Robinson, etc. Check the video for “Just Ain’t Gonna Work Out” and his rendition of Tony Bennet’s classic “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” after the break.
