Nashville, TN, United States, 2006/12/31 - Nashville's hottest guitarist, Brent Mason, has just released a new album, a follow-up to 'Hot Wired' from the late 90's.
Brent Mason's first album Hot Wired marked the solo debut by one of Nashville's hottest studio guitarists. Like many such efforts by established hired pickers known for their versatility, Hot Wired successfully showed several of Mason's amazing gift for pouring himself into each song to create a great backing.
Often called one of the most recorded guitarists in history, Brent Mason (brentmason.com) regularly demonstrates his virtuosity on sessions with a number of country and pop stars, including George Strait, Brooks and Dunn, Alan Jackson, Wade Hayes, Toby Keith, Randy Travis, Neil Diamond…and a huge percentage of all the songs on top 40 country music stations today, top 40 pop stations, as well as many TV commercials.
Most recently, he has released a new solo cd with his equally talented brother, Randy Mason. The newest album is called "Smokin' Section" and was recorded using only 12 tracks...a true feat for anyone except these two brothers!
As Randy says, "No pro-tools or tricks, just straight from my shed, like when we were kids growing up in Grover Hill, Ohio."
Though you wouldn’t be able to tell that this is a home recording…the tones on this album are amazing…big, full, fat, full of life, and NOT compressed like you hear on the radio so often!
You can tell this is where their passion is too – Brent said this about the experience:
“My brother Randy and I have been jamming together since we were kids, so this is a special project that’s been long overdue.
We had a blast writing and playing this style of music that is dear to our hearts. We captured the essence by keeping it simple and spontaneous.”
Randy, the other half of this amazing duo elaborated on it a bit. “Last fall Brent said “Hey we should do an album together. Maybe we can do it ourselves on this digital recorder I bought.” I said, “Yea! What’ll we do on it?” Brent said, “We’ll write some stuff.”
I’ve always wanted to do an album with Brent. He is to me the very best brother, and musician in the world. Just listen for yourself!”.
