Any fans? my girlfriend loves the guy, and I got to see him live last week and he puts on an awesome show. Really soulful, infectious, groove-filled music. Blue-Eyed Soul. He kind of channels a lot of the traditional Motown and Soul music from the 60's and 70's, but at the same time, has something modern about him.

His studio albums are nice, although I think I'm starting to appreciate more them after seeing his music live.

I fucking love Mayer Hawthorne! I've posted about him on here before, but no one seems too interested. I saw him with TheCritic at the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee with Passion Pit about a year ago and he was awesome. I had never heard his music before that night and the whole place was jumping. He had a lot of energy on stage and I really like both of his studio albums. He's coming to Summerfest this year and I will be seeing him again. This is a great song and video. I think the thing that keeps his Motown sound fresh is his lyrics.

his lyrics? that's a good point, as it seems most of his songs tell a relate-able story.

Yeah that video is funny; someone on youtube compared it to Mr and Mrs. Smith.

Summerfest? Ours is playing there as well. If I could afford another trip that soon, I'd defintely go.

it was like the most famous/archetypical song of the early 2000s emo/post hardcore era. yeah, it's garbage. i'm just stunned you have NEVER heard that song and NEVER heard of HH.

btw i'm not like judging you. you're better off for not knowing it. i just don't know how you managed to dodge it lol.

sorry for derailing this thread about a good musician.

agreed.

Mayer's a huge fan of Hall & Oates. He's even been playing "You Make My Dreams Come True" on his current tour.
