"There are no chords to this song" ~ Ray Mason, the man and his Silvertone.
Pioneer Valley singer-songwriter Ray Mason of The Ray Mason Band and the Lonesome Brothers rolled out a wonderful tune this Spring that reflects the pure joy of listening to records and dreaming of starting a band.
Our favorite lyric of this new song?
"Listening to records in my room, while reading liner notes. Learning something different every time.
They're so fine!
Like a book off a shelf, or a train on its track, I'm on this trip and I'm never coming back!"

From his website
Ray Mason is often called the Godfather of the New England music
scene. Godfathers are usually that cool uncle or friend of your parents who
tells good stories and gives you advice on the things that matter. As the
Godfather of the scene, Ray tells stories in his songs and has given more sage
advice to young musicians than anyone can possibly imagine. Mentoring musicians
is just another feather in the cap of Mason, who continues to be an icon to
people who know music.
Ray and his road-worn 1965 Silvertone guitar have been
tirelessly touring since 1982.
Thoroughout the years Ray has opened shows for NRBQ, The
Band, Marshall Crenshaw, Bill Morrissey, Graham Parker, They Might Be Giants,
Nils Lofgren, Warren Zevon, Joan Osborne, Freedy Johnston, Joan Jett, Blue
Mountain and more.
Ray's tunes follow no trend while keeping an upward slide on
the songwriting scale. It's rock with the roll! Kick back and enjoy!!
Stay tuned for more coverage of Ray Mason, including interviews and news.
