John-Alex Mason roots his music within a love of pre-War blues styles and his passionate shows weave poignant originals with interpretations of rare songs from America’s past. "Time Will Come" Mason's third album will be released in April 2004. The record features the playing of Bill Rich (Taj Mahal Trio) on Bass, Chris Stongal on Drums, Jim Waddell ( Chris Daniels and The Kings) on Sax & Organ, and Gerry Hundt on Harmonica. The album's 13 songs feature 11 new tunes by Mason and covers of Blind Willie Johnson and Charlie Patton. Mason will again tour New England Solo in the Spring on each side of a European tour in March 2004. In 2001 Mason won the esteemed Crossroads Acoustic Blues Competition at the Telluride Blues Festival and has been invited back each year since to perform and teach workshops. Recently fans of Jimmie Vaughn, John Mayall & Joan Osborne have enjoyed Mason’s tunes when he opened for those artists. Mason endorses John Pearse Strings & National Guitars.
