Tom Mason is a true renaissance man. Life is a department store and Tom Mason is running up and down the aisles filling his pockets. A fine guitarist, a sizzling slide player and multi-instrumentalist, a seasoned actor, and a passionate songwriter, Mason is above all an entertainer, eager to share his lust for life every time he straps on a guitar or hits the stage…
Since arriving in Nashville in 1993, Mason has not only established himself as a favorite in nightclubs and studios, he’s also become a sought after actor in theater and film. With his CD “Alchemy”, Tom Mason draws on all his talents to create a work filled with magic. The CD jacket says it all: “13 extraordinary tales of conjurors, healers, virtuosos, pirates, lovers, and sojourners, performed by the most amazing musicians in the world.”
In 2011 Mason released “The Blue Buccaneer-Songs Inspired by The Golden Age of Pirates”, and has been touring as Tom Mason and the Blue Buccaneers in support of the CD, a rollicking mix of piratical sing-alongs, rousing historical rave-ups, afro-cuban tinged ballads, and bluesy Irish jigs.
When Tom Mason isn’t touring with his own band or strutting the stage in a theatrical production, he tours as lead guitarist and dobro player for such artist as Phil Lee and Last Train Home. His dobro work is brought to the forefront on his instrumental CD “A Slide Guitar Christmas”, a perennial favorite.
