Town & Country engages the conversation between history and the present, between roots and the fruits, between the bit of town and the bit of country that is in all of us. John-Alex Mason explores these ideas with danceable grooves, masterful slide work and interpretations of rare songs from America’s past that compliment slow-core acoustic and rocking one-man band originals. Rooted by his love of Delta, Piedmont and Hill Country Blues, Mason delivers stunning solo performances on both his resonator guitar and his electrified one-man band rig. Deep, hypnotic vocals alongside sweet songwriting elevate and unite the 15 tracks, 7 of which are original compositions. This is the first nationally distributed title by Mason who was called by long-time Muddy Waters’ guitarist Bob Margolin, “One of the deepest young cats on the scene today.” Engineered with the listener in mind, Town & Country was mastered by multi-Grammy winner David Glasser and is an HDCD. Deep Country Blues Acoustic and Electrified!
