Mayer Hawthorne wears a lot of hats in the music business, including as a singer, songwriter,producer, arranger, audio engineer, DJ, rapper and multi-instrumentalist. When he’s on tour, though, he’s a soul and neo-soul singer with a strong liking for Sixties and Seventies-era R&B in the style of Holland-Dozier-Holland. Hawthorne has been on Conan and the Letterman show recently, as well as having a variety of guest spots on other TV shows, plus songs in various shows. He didn’t really set out to be an artist but was prevailed upon to try it out. Now he has four albums to his credit plus a long list of singles. His most recent, Where Does This Door Go, was released in July. He’ll appear at Headliners, along with Superhumanoids on September 19. Tickets are $18.
Ohio native and first season “X Factor USA” runner-up Josh Krajcik is another musician who has benefited from the power of television to launch a career. He first played around as a solo singer-songwriter before the “X Factor” gig, then went on to create the Josh Krajcik Band, which he will lead into Zanzabar in August 9, in support of the fourth album, 2013’s Blindly, Lonely, Lovely. Krajcik and the band can’t be dismissed as flukes because of the “X-Factor” win; he and his bandmates have toured consistently, including a set at Bonnaroo in 2006. They appeared on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! and NPR’s renowned World Café in 2007. It also should be noted that he got his “X Factor” slot with “At Last,” thereby proving he can sing. Tickets are $10adv/$15 Dos.
