Mayer Hawthorne, the successful neo-soul singer originally from Ann Arbor, continues to draw plenty of national buzz.

Hawthorne, who graduated from Huron High School and the University of MIchigan, has a new album out called "How Do You Do." And last night, he was the musical guest on Conan O'Brien's cable talk show, "Conan." Hawthorne played his new single, "Walk," and sounded terrific.
