Music has certainly been a part of Jeff Mason's life for longer than he can remember. If you ask his family they will tell you he was singing before he could talk. When he was very young he took to instruments of all types but very quickly progressed on the piano since that was what he had in his Enfield NH home. He began writing songs on piano around the age of 10 years old but began showing more interest in his older brothers guitar. While living in Florida at the age of 13, his parents bought him an acoustic. Three days later in Kissimmee Jeff's band experience began with his friend Kent on drums (It’s probably best there are no recordings of that). Since then, he has never been without a guitar.
As soon as Jeff graduated high school he began making a living playing music. Since then and like most musicians, Jeff has played in a number of bands during his musical journey. Sometimes on Bass, other times on guitar. Most of these groups including, The Austin Winch Band, The Cast and Devout enjoyed mild success in the club circuit but all of these experiences helped develop his style. In the mid 90’s after a brief hiatus from live gigs, Jeff brought a group of musicians together to finish recording a number of his original songs.
This was the beginning of "Rock Mason" It was immediately clear that there was something special about this music and the band decided to take it to the road. Now known as The Jeff Mason Band this group of musicians and friends alike have the drive to make music their vehicle for success. As the songwriter, vocalist and guitarist for the band, Jeff finds new inspiration each time he plays with this great group of guys. There is a magic generated among these players that all musicians strive to feel. Many of the songs on the Jeff Mason Band's debut record, “Get Busy Living,” have something special that is felt immediately upon first listen. Check the JMB out Live at their next show.
