Willy Mason – Carry On (Universal Music Canada)

willy masonABuilt around simple drum patterns, electric guitar play and recalling the songwriting style of Ron Sexsmith and the legendary Paul Simon, the third record from American songwriter Willy Mason is indeed something to behold. Mason exudes maturity in his vocals and songs that extend well beyond his 28 years. On tracks like Show Me The Way To Go Home, there is a sadness that shines through while I Got Gold is pure exhilaration. With Carry On, Mason proves without a doubt that he is one of the more exciting voices to emerge from the world of singer-songwriters.
