Sense of Place: Detroit –You Can’t Take The Detroit Out of Mayer Hawthorne

Mayer Hawthorne joins us for our Sense of Place Detroit and talks a bit about growing up in the environs of the Motor City.
He actually started as a hip-hop artist but it was his retro take on soul music that caught people’s, and record company’s ears. His third album Where Does This Door Go is a bit different with more 70’s and 80’s influences. He mentions Steely Dan as an influence. We’ll hear performances from Mayer Hawthorne and his band.
