Mayer Hawthorne at The GOODS Diner

Posted on 27 November 2017

Generation G and The GOODS Diner presented a DJ Set performance by Mayer Hawthorne last Sunday on 19th November 2017 at The GOODS Diner SCBD. Mayer Hawthorne has over 100 million plays on YouTube, Spotify and other streaming sites. In 2013, his sophomore album How Do You Do earned him a Grammy nod.

During the height of Detroit Hip-Hop, Mayer was spinning records and making rap beats in Michigan. Now, he creates soul records and being sampled. His works has been featured in various tv shows and a short film by Kanye West & Spike Jonze “We Were Once a Fairytale”. Mayer has been digging in the crates and you can hear the influences in his music. A touch of Shuggie Otis and Bob Marley here and there, along with a sprinkle of Sly Stone. His songwriting pulls from his life and observations; his heartache and joy. Sometimes it’s groovy, other times he’s vulnerable and sincere. Mayer ventures music is to be applauded for. He plays his own instrument, he sings, and writes his own songs.
