INTERVIEW: Mayer Hawthorne, Friday, 7pm

By Giovanna Stallings-Blanche posted Sep 29, 2010 at 09:03 PM


Amber takes on the man with the falsetto.

+ he will be playing at Culture Room this Sunday night with his band, the County. Ticket giveaways on air all week. 


"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.”
