Comprándome Discos // Buying Me Records Todas las canciones en el álbum A Strange Arrangement no solo nos trasladan a otra época, si no también reflejan las raíces del cantante. “Me crié escuchando esta música… me crié cerca de Detroit escuchando la mejor música soul hecha en la historio,” dijo el soulman, “la estudie muchísimo.” Y la música está en su sangre. “Mi madre toca el piano y canta y baila; my padre tocaba el bajo, todavía lo toca en un grupo de Ann Arbor… me ensenó a tocar cuando tenía seis años”, dijo Hawthorne. All songs on Hawthorne’s A Strange Arrangement not only take its listeners back, but they also reflect his roots. “I grew up listening to this music… I grew up near Detroit listening to all the best soul music ever made,” he said, “I really studied it growing up.” And music is in his blood. “My mom plays piano and sings and dances; my father played bass guitar, still plays guitar in a band in Ann Arbor to this day… he taught me to play when I was six-years-old,” said Hawthorne.

Era inevitable que Hawthorne trabajara en música. “Antes de poder leer las etiquetas, ya estaban comprándome discos y tenía mi tocadiscos para niños,” dijo Hawthorne, “eso es lo único que hacia cuando era pequeño, escuchar discos todo el día… llevo siendo un DJ desde que era pequeño”. It was inevitable that Hawthorne would work in music. “Before I could read the labels, they were buying me records and I had my little, you know, children’s record player,” he said, “that’s all I used to do when I was little, I used to just play records all day… I’ve been DJing since I was a toddler.”
