Willy Mason

Music / Folk, Singer-Songwriter / New York, United States of America

Willy Mason needed not much more than his voice, guitar and a drum kit when he recorded his debut album “Where The Humans Eat” in a remote studio in the Catskill Mountains near New York in the summer of 2004. A classic of contemporary folk that seemed to just flow out of him intuitively – at the tender age of 19. An oft-feted heir to the time-honoured US songwriting tradition, Mason has continued to live up to that image with his following albums. For example, taking the perspective of the lonely traveller on the poetic “If The Ocean Gets Rough” (2007), mirroring the decline of the world in naturalistic images. And on his latest album, “Already Dead” (2021), he once again takes a new route, integrating art rock and psychedelic tricks into his sound, yet still remaining true to his passion for telling musical stories. Now we finally get to listen to these stories at the Reeperbahn Festival.
