This DJ-turned-soul man (Mayer Hawthorne) of Ann Arbor, Mich. can smooth out the kinks in any bad day with his sleek and soothing voice. Let's be clear, anyone that cites Smokey Robinson as an inspiration for his music is perfectly fine by us.
wow this guy is great . i wanna redo this song but it couldnt touch the original. Its a masterpiece
Wow i love this song i wanna sing it myself but it wouldnt be close to this one.
The musicians he is using are smooth and must have studio experience. A little too much tambourine.
I hope the producer uses AUTO-TUNE in the studio!! (PITCHY!) The back-up vocals are spot-on and the band is good playing familiar grooves! (American 60s, 70s Motown/R&B) " See Youngesters….ANYONE can be a music star these days…all you need is a mediocre talent with a niche and a backer with deep pockets!' !! lol I just know I will make it to American Idol w my Kazoo…I'll show em! lol NEXT!!!!
Great voice...My kind of music....His face doesn't go with his music..Who cares he will be a big hit..
Great voice....another Holly.....leaves the bros in the dust!
This guy is great, I grew up with Motown and still love to this day and many of my friends as well.I would purchase his music for sure. A grand up date on soul music done very well and classic.Mayer Hawthorne your a real plesant surprise for sure.
Lets just say that I'm implying that I really do not think this guy is talented. Maybe he could pass the high school talent show test but for a professional singer his voice is weak and his delivery is corny.
I think he has a very unusual voice. I like this group. Their better than some groups out there that can't carry a tune.
