Matt Mason is an independent guitarist, singer/songwriter, bandleader, sideman, teacher, touring and recording musician living in Oklahoma.
He started playing parties, nightclubs and dances in Bartlesville OK in his mid teens. Throughout multiple recordings and nearly 2000 gigs in 14 states he has continued to be a student and a lover of music. The band Hurricane Mason has proven to be an exceptional vehicle to allow Matt to synthesize, create and perform his take on familiar styles..."progressive, alternative.. bluesrockandcountryroll from the heartland"
Along this musical life's journey, the path has been extremely trying at times. Yes.. there's been tragedy, shakeups and breakups and the band lineups have changed over the years, but Matt has been able to dodge most of the punches, keep making music and simply just keep moving forward. This was one of the many lessons instilled in him by his late bass player, mentor and spiritual guide ACE Eversole. His heavy presence continues to be felt nearly 3 years since he passed.
Eversole produced recorded and co-wrote with Mason and some of the results can be heard on what is referred to as the "lost studio album" titled "Be The Wolf" and a vintage performance from the first time the band played with English guitar legend Robin Trower at "Live at Cain's Ballroom" in 2009. Both recordings will be released and available on the night of 4/20/2019 when the band plays for now the third time with Trower in Tulsa...this time at the larger Brady Theater (soon to be renamed the Tulsa Theater).
Matt has enlisted a whole new band for the festivities and you can get a sneak peek when they play live on Tulsa's ABC affiliate KTUL morning show "Good Day Tulsa" Thurs Apr 18.
