Mayor Hawthorne is kind of a big deal. Not only is he a singer, producer, songwriter, arranger, audio engineer, DJ, rapper and multi-instrumentalist (phew!), but he also made history by taking the title of Hard Rock Café’s first ever “Artist of the Month!”

Stopping by the Hard Rock Café in Hollywood, Florida last Tuesday, he put one of his performance outfits from the 2013 Hard Rock Calling musical festival on display for all to see and admire. A custom-made leather jacket – quite the rad jacket – and a pair of one-of-a-kind NIKE Air Max 1 iD shoes to go along with it will now and forever be a part of the Café’s famous memorabilia collection.

Along with all of this, throughout the month of August, Mayor’s latest music video “Her Favorite Song” will be on repeat all day, every day in over 138 locations – worldwide! How impressive is that?

This talented artist has been creating more and more buzz ever since he came on the scene in 2009 with his debut album A Strange Arrangement. While always carrying that “throwback sound” of ‘60s soul, his latest album Where Does This Door Go is definitely different from his signature sound. We can’t get enough!
