MAYER HAWTHORNE ANNOUNCES NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES

MAYER HAWTHORNE AND THE COUNTY ANNOUNCE EXTENSIVE NORTH AMERICAN TOUR
SXSW AND COACHELLA PLANNED STOPS ALONG THE WAY

The Motor City crooner of soul, Mayer Hawthorne, is taking his band The County with him across North America for a month-long tour starting on March 4th in New York City. The multi-instrumentalist/singer/producer will be making much-anticipated stops along the way to play three days at Austin’s SXSW Festival and will end the tour on April 18th with a Sunday night serenade at Coachella.

Mayer and crew will be performing tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live (Weds 1/27 on ABC 12:05|11:05c) doing his hits “Your Easy Lovin’ Ain’t Pleasin’ Nothin'” and “Just Ain’t Gonna Work Out”.

You surely became familiar with Mayer’s R&B soul style in 2009 with the release of his debut album, A Strange Arrangement on Stone’s Throw Records, which received the approval of critics from the likes of Rolling Stone, Billboard, The New York Times, NPR, O Magazine, Pitchfork, and Alarm, among others.

Supporting Mayer for the first leg of his tour is the songwriter and pianist for Nouveau Riche, Nikki Jean. The second leg of the tour will include Mayer opening for the popular electro-pop band Passion Pit.
