The Daily Grind Video

Singer, producer, songwriter, arranger, audio engineer, DJ, multi-instrumentalist, and rapper, Mayer Hawthorne is releasing ‘No Strings,’ produced by Classix, in anticipation of his upcoming tour.

Hawthorne has been featured on the cover of Beyond Race Magazine (BRM) and his song ‘When I Said Goodbye,’ was featured in in the Kanye West/Spike Jonze short film We Were Once a Fairytale.

Mayer Hawthorne (born Andrew Cohen) got his stage name, not his porn name, when he combined his middle name and the street he grew up on. He’s been on the rise since his first full length was released in early 2009, and attributes his soulful voice to his influences: Curtis Mayfield, Isaac Hayes, Leroy Hutson, Barry White, and Smoky Robinson.
