The Emmy®-nominated music series LIVE FROM THE ARTISTS DEN features a remarkable line-up of icons and emerging stars performing in unique and historic venues. The groundbreaking fifth season features Norah Jones (March 29), The Wallflowers (April 5), Rufus Wainwright (April 12) and Mayer Hawthorne (April 19).
"Mayer Hawthorne" - “This is a secret show, right?” said Mayer Hawthorne at the start of his performance at the opulent Grand Ballroom of the Park Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles. “Well, tonight, the secret word is fun.” He kept his word for the next 90 minutes, as he and his nimble band, The County, blazed through two dozen songs in his updated classic soul style, infused with everything from doo-wop to hip-hop.
Over the course of the evening, Hawthorne and his band thrilled an invitation-only crowd of 400 with a set featuring selections from Hawthorne’s acclaimed new album, "How Do You Do," plus such fan favorites as “Green Eyed Love.”
Hawthorne's full set list includes "Maybe So, Maybe No," "Gangsta Luv," "Make Her Mine," "Your Easy Loving'Ain't Pleasin' Nothin'," "The Walk," "Dreaming," "One Track Mind," "Stick Around," "Love In Motion," "No Strings," "Finally Falling," "Green Eyed Love," "Just Ain't Gonna Work Out," "Hooked" and "The Ills."
