Ray Mason - Nov 2010
We had the honor to meet Ray Mason tonight and hear him play from his extensive catalogue of original work. The first thing I noticed about the performance was his guitar. It was hand painted and had such a clear, unique sound. He told me later he bought it from Sears in Holyoke in 1965 and has played it in clubs throughout New England ever since.
He is quite a music historian, with his own themes, woven into the fabric of classic rock for decades. This man is open to all genres of music and integrates them into his performances, creating his own sound that never sells out.
His lyrics are real, empathic, wise and often funny, which give the listener immediate confidence in him. What will he have to say next?
