Mayer Howthorne (US)

A practitioner of his own variety of playful but sincere blue-eyed soul, Mayer Hawthorne is the stage name of eclectic DJ/producer Andrew Cohen. In his guise as HawthorneCohen reveals he's a keen student of sounds of the past, writing songs that show the influences of '60s soul and '70s funk, with a contemporary production sensibility and a witty but heartfelt lyrical stance that often depicts him as the smoothest nerdy guy (or nerdiest smooth guy) in music. Hawthorne's 2011 breakthrough album How Do You Do was steeped in the sound of classic Motown sides, while he folded '70s soul and soft rock into the formula on 2016's Man About Town.
