Mason Reed has a story to tell. A story filled with broken hearts, bad luck, bloody concrete, rotten chances, ghosts, devils, witches, and women your mother warned you about. When you listen to his music, you can hear something special happening.
His unique, soul-filled, smoky voice, and unique approach to his music is evidence that the singer-songwriter genre still has a few tricks up its sleeve, and that real Americana music hasn’t been fluffed over with soft, computer-generated guitar sounds and auto-tuned pop punk vocals.
Instead, some of the genre’s underground heroes, like Reed, are conjuring music and sounds as raw and haunting as ever before.
Reed’s new recorded album titled, “Up To My Neck In It,” is scheduled to be released in April of 2013. It was produced by Stuart Mathis (The Wallflowers) and features guitar and vocal performances from John Oates (Hall & Oates). “It was an honor to get to work with all the players on the record,” Reed says “I’ve admired their music for years and now I get the honor of sharing some tape with some of the best talents on the planet.”
