Mayer Hawthorne sings soul music. Before I go any further, let me just say that I think the music of the 1960's is some of the greatest stuff in the world. Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, Etta James, The Temptations, and other Motown greats paved the way for modern music to be what it is today. Hawthorne draws heavily from this era of music, except that he's a 29 year old white guy and the year is 2009. He may not be Marvin Gaye, but I think he's definitely worth your time, and it'll be interesting to see how he can do in today's music world. Enjoy.
