Singer/songwriter Mason Jennings [web site | Amazon.com] blends the personal insights of a poet, the political broadsides of a protest singer, and the broad musical eclecticism of a jazz musician with a rock & roller's passion. The result has made him one of the most talked-about artists on the acoustic music scene and earned him a loyal cult following.
Jennings was born in 1975 in Honolulu, Hawaii, but moved to Pittsburgh with his family shortly after. While Mason was still a young boy, his father moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota and sent his son a series of tapes featuring bands that were storming the then-fertile Twin City music scene. Inspired, Jennings picked up a guitar and starting writing songs by the age of 13. Three years later, Jennings decided to pursue a career in music and promptly dropped out of school, opting instead to move to Minneapolis and work on his songs full-time. At 19, he'd already attracted the attention of a major booking agency and begun receiving offers from record companies, but Jennings was more interested in a situation that would offer him creative freedom, not a fast influx of cash. Jennings soon retreated to his apartment and began working on his first album, which he recorded and scrapped four times before finally settling on a final track list.
Over his 12-year career, Mason has released an extensive and diverse collection of 10 albums. His catchy melodies, intimate lyrics, literary and historical themes, and distinctive voice have created a rabid and loyal fan base. His records have sold over 250k in the US alone. In a review of his most recent release, Always Been, All Music Guide praised Jennings' "knack for catchy, folk-oriented songs built around simple guitar structures and rhythmic lyrics... Jennings has crafted a deftly sophisticated album whose straightforward simplicity belies darker emotional truths."
