MUSIC NEWS- Mayer Hawthorne has come a long way since his 2008 debut, and currently, he says, "Life is really great." He's released two well-received full-length albums, had songs licensed for film and television, and toured the world with Bruno Mars, Erykah Badu, Janelle Monae, Passion Pit, John Mayer, Chromeo and the late Amy Winehouse.
His latest release, Where Does This Door Go, will be out on July 16th (via Universal) and features a host of top-flight production work from Pharrell Williams, Greg Wells, Oak (of Oak & Pop) and John Hill. Mayer grew up just outside of Detroit in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and remembers, as a child, driving with his father and tuning the car radio in to the region's rich musical tapestry. He has produced music and played instruments for much of his life; a hip-hop producer at the start of his career, and uses skills honed as a touring DJ to create his own original dance floor jams. Throughout the years he's cited R&B legends Isaac Hayes, Leroy Hutson and Barry White and inspiration, along with producers J Dilla and Mike Terry.
