“Mason Roberts’ distinct tenor vocal on his latest single ‘Sink or Swim’ will take you on a journey into the mystical enjoyment of adult contemporary music. Taken from his full-length album ‘Under The Spell’, it will leave you not only wanting more, but anxious to partake of this singer-songwriter’s ability to addict you to his musical expertise.” – Tom Lambert, The Independent Music Show
Based in Kalamazoo, MI, Mason Roberts is an artist who loves nothing more than the moment onstage connecting with the audience. With vibrato that is reminiscent of Josh Groban and the vocal purity of Michael Buble and Jamie Cullum, Mason’s passionate tenor pierces emotions. His distinct voice is an innate gift that has been honed through more than 10 years of vocal training where he studied voice both privately and through Western Michigan University’s School of Music. He’s been charming listeners since he was a kid, seizing every chance to develop his skill. Mason achieves what few can by pulling together a broad spectrum of listeners.
Mason’s critically acclaimed debut CD EP, ‘Big City’ (2006), can be described as “smart-crafted pop songs”, a solid effort for the stunning vocalist. “Broken (in two)” and the title track from the album spent a combined 25 weeks at #1 on internet radio and garnered him a finalist slot in the 2006 Great Lakes Songwriting Contest. The ‘Naturally’ EP (2009), his second effort, featured a more contemporary sound, such as the title track and “Never To Lose You”. His crooning shines on songs like the emotionally charged “Take Me As I Am”, the album’s smokey opener. The Grand Rapids Press raved that. “Josh Groban would embrace this record.”
Mason’s first full-length CD release ‘Under The Spell’ will be released globally on October 15, 2013. This album highlights Mason’s vocal and songwriting ability as a true pop artist. However, it is Mason’s emotional vocal that takes center stage and place listeners in a trance, just as it should. In fact, that’s where you’ll find him at his finest – fronting a full band that lifts off and carries his voice across the audience with fire an passion!
The second single from ‘Under The Spell’ is “Walking Away” (a ballad), and will accompany an official music video as well. This single was just released to international radio and will be available for purchase at Amazon and iTunes on September 17, 2013. This date is also the date of the album pre-sale. A CD release party and other performances are currently being booked. Dates and venues will be announced soon.
Famed producer Joey Stuckey discusses the recording sessions, “Mason’s sense of melody is truly amazing! I so enjoyed bringing his songs to life, he is a true artist in every good sense of the word. He was always game to try my ideas and usually that is what we went with, but, he is so creative and has such a vision for what he wants with his music to evoke in the listener, he wasn’t afraid to tell me when he wanted his way and we went with that.”
In closing Mason imparts, “I am a passionate singer-songwriter that writes from all my experiences and are hopefully relatable. This album is about moving on and becoming stronger.”
