You’ve Got the Makings of a Lover – Mayer Hawthorne

May 17, 2011


The internet where I am right now is being intermittent so I’m not posting anything new. Instead I’m posting the smooth sounds of Mayer Hawthorne. My first interaction with this fine human being was over a year ago when he was touring with Passion Pit. He was wearing a fabulous red suit and sang soulfully with a horn in the background. I was sold instantly. I’m ashamed to say I lost track of him until this lovely free EP came out. His voice is lovely and old-timey so it’s perfect that his album “Impressions – the Covers EP” is all covers. Think of a cross between John Legend and Michael Buble. Or don’t. Instead you could listen to him sing.

BONUS: And here’s his cover of ELO’s “Mr. Blue Sky” which I think he does an admirable job of but most of the ELO fans I’ve run into are against the mere idea of a cover, so… Anyways this is where I first spotted Mayer Hawthorne again, on the Music Ninja. If you like these songs, be sure to download the rest of the EP.
