Ann Arbor's Andrew Cohen, AKA Mayer Hawthorne to music fans worldwide, has seen his career take off since he left Michigan and moved to Los Angeles several years ago. He's got a record deal, his music is in fashion with fans of "Green Eyed Soul," and he's getting praises online from folks like Justin Timberlake and Snoop Dogg for the Motown influenced music he's making. But let's be real. He's a nobody... and I repeat nobody, until he gets his own Bobblehead.
Thankfully, Hawthorne's days of being a nobody have ended. For $15, you can now get yourself an official Mayer Hawthorne Bobblehead. There's no telling who's going to actually buy it but a company named Bobblethorne Industries recently created them and folks in home state should know they exist. Shoutouts to the folks at Stones Throw Records for the heads up.
