MATT MASON

 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 around Bartlesville OK in his mid teens. Throughout multiple recordings and over 2500 gigs in 14 states he continues to be both a student and a lover of music. Familiar styles synthesize together to create... 

"progressive, alternative.. bluesrockandcountryroll from the heartland".

" Necessity is the mother of invention...

After the Alaska tour plans of 2020 were dashed by the worldwide pandemic, Matt realized he was going to have a lot of free time on his hands...more than ever since the start of his career.  So He decided to make use of the unexpected downtime by acquiring some new tech hardware and shoring up on some new recording skills at his home studio. It was a good time to take a breath and retool his whole work flow...towards the goal of becoming more independent and self sufficient.  He's been recording new material for the spring 2023 release of a collection of songs inspired by and about farming and agriculture called “Ya Dig?” as well as compiling rare tracks. demos and live cuts for 4 different extended plays drawing material from sessions going back to his early days.
