About Mayer Hawthorne
Andrew Mayer Cohen, better known by the stage name Mayer Hawthorne, is an American singer, producer, songwriter, arranger, audio engineer, DJ, rapper and multi-instrumentalist based in Los Angeles, California. “Mayer Hawthorne and The County” is a name Cohen often uses when performing or recording as Mayer Hawthorne with other artists. In Cohen’s words, “The County” is basically anyone who plays an instrument or sings on his album. It is also his band when he performs live. Cohen also performs and records hip hop under the stage name Haircut, sometimes as part of the groups Now On and Athletic Mic League.


On July 15, 2011, Mayer Hawthorne was a guest, along with famed Memphis/Stax Records keyboardist Booker T. Jones, on Episode 43 of Daryl Hall’s Live From Daryl’s House webcast. Hawthorne, Hall, and Jones combined with Hall’s house band on “Strange Arrangement,” “Green Onions”, “No Strings,” “Just Ain’t Gonna Work Out,” and “Your Easy Lovin’ Ain’t Pleasin’ Nothin'” and Hall’s “You Make My Dreams” and “Private Eyes.” During Hall’s dinner for the group, Hawthorne stated that, when working as a hip hop DJ, he began recording his own Motown-style tracks to avoid paying fees for sampling other artists’ work. He also played all the instruments on each of those tracks, in addition to recording all his own vocals.

Mayer Hawthorne and The County were musical guests on the Conan TV show on October 17, 2011, and the Late Show with David Letterman on October 25, 2011. On both shows, the group performed “The Walk”, their first single from How Do You Do.

In 2012 Hawthorne released the six-track live EP, KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, as a part of Record Store Day’s Black Friday.

In late May 2013, Hawthorne released his latest single “Her Favorite Song” from his latest album Where Does This Door Go. It is noted that the album is a departure from his throwback style in his past 3 albums.

Hawthorne performed at the 2014 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic in Ann Arbor, MI in front of a crowd of more than 100,000 people.
