Willy Mason

Acclaimed nu-blues troubadour

Critics often greet new and promising artists with grandiose statements as to the merits of their work and potential, often to the detriment of the artist. Fortunately when the exceptional Willy Mason emerged, first with the5-track ‘G-Ma’s Basement EP’ and then with debut album ‘Where The Humans Eat’, he remained unfazed by the acclaim showered on him from every quarter, which included being hailed as the new Bob Dylan. Mason’s image as a troubadour touring through the American heartland does invoke the lineage of Dylan and Woody Guthrie, but the man is more concerned with his own talent than bootlegging the past.
