#14 // Stones Throw Artist Showcase #1: Mayer Hawthorne & The County

Bonjour kin folk.
We're super dumb mad excited to launch our Stones Throw Artist Showcase Summer Series this Thursday. The first artist we are presenting in this series is Ann Arbor, Michigan native, Los Angeles transplant soul/doo wop singing sensation Mayer Hawthorne and his full band The County.


Gilles Peterson has called Mayer's 'Just Aint Gonna Work Out' "One of the biggest records of 2009!". Regarding the same record, Mark Ronson is quoted saying "I have no idea what this is, old or new, but it's fucking good!!!". If that isn't enough juice, try this effing awkward blog post on for size... It's Justin Timberlake calling 'Just Aint Gonna Work Out' "the perfect tune".

Alright, so ol' boy has JT, Gilles Peterson and Mark Ronson on his nuts...
He was also charted in May as one of Urb Magazines "Next 100".

... Not so bad for a dj from Ann Arbor. Kid done good.

The debut Mayer Hawthorn full length 'A Strange Arrangement' is due out this fall on Stones Throw Records, after which we fully expect dude to blast into the outer regions of fame and shinedom.


Before that happens, though, we are proud to offer you the chance to catch this rising star live amidst the warm and cuddly comforts of Grown Folk Shit this Thursday July 23rd. The evening's host will be resident grown ass joc Ikah Love, who will also be performing with The Grown Folk House Band and guest vocalist Latanya Lockett.
