Berlin: Mayer Hawthorne asks How Do You Do?
- Date published
The last year has been wild and successful for Mayer Hawthorne. He toured around the globe with such renowned artists like Bruno Mars and Janelle Monae, he played acclaimed shows at big Festivals such as SXSW or Coachella, he signed to a new record company, and above all he composed a new longplayer.
Before his new album hits the record stores he jumps into a nightliner with his band The County, a bunch of musicians that follow the groove of Mayer while keeping it cool and funky. One stop of their round trip towards Europa is at Festsaal Kreuzberg in Berlin. A venue that proofs that the man from Ann Arbor, Michigan left the small basement clubs to reach a wider audience. But no worries: those who follow his tribe since his jaw-dropping heart shaped debut Just Ain't Gonna Work Out can be for sure: he is still a heartbreaking gentleman crooner with a smile on his lips that wants nothing less then embrace the world with timeless Soul music. You need a proof? Well, just listen to the first single A Long Time. You will get infected!!!
