Mason Jennings is an American folk-pop singer-songwriter. He is well known for his songwriting and distinctive voice.
Mason Jennings was born on the Island of Hawaii, but at an early age his family moved to the opposite of tropical, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. At 13, he started playing guitar and writing songs. Mason later dropped out of high school and decided to move to Minneapolis to pursue his musical career. Jennings made this decision after a friend of his father’s sent him cassette tapes of the Replacements, Jayhawks, and Prince. After non-stop listening he felt like it would be a great home for his music.

I’m a private person but feel the need to talk about a few things that have happened in my life recently.
I was struggling for many years in my personal life. I was struggling with severe anxiety and then developed agoraphobia which made it hard for me to leave the house let alone tour and play live.
I decided I wanted to heal and took a hard look at a lot of things in my life. I made some changes and got honest with myself. I got divorced. I started eating better and got more regular with my yoga practice. I recommitted to my sobriety.
Things got better. Like, way better. I am healing and recovering from agoraphobia. I reconnected with my spirituality and with the healing power of creativity. I started living more authentically in all areas of my life.
During this time I met an amazing, inspiring woman, Josie, who I feel like I’ve known forever. It’s a connection like I’ve never experienced. We fell deeply in love and recently got married.
I just wrote and recorded an album of new songs. The album was made in a barn studio in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. I got some help from my friends The Pines. It is called Songs From When We Met and will be released on May 11th. It’s a love record, a record about healing, and I hope it brings hope and joy to those who listen.
Thank you for your support.

The Bacon Brothers
Most people would agree that there’s nothing stronger, more durable and occasionally, even more volatile, than the bond between brothers. And when that bond includes the common goal of making music, the results often offer reason for an audience to sit up and take notice. There have been any number of examples in music’s modern era — the Everly Brothers, the Beach Boys, the Kinks and Oasis to name but a few. Not that it’s easy or even agreeable, but there is common cause, and that’s generally enough to ensure there’s passion and purpose in its creation.
Just as the Bacon Brothers. Fiercely devoted to making music, even from an early age, the two siblings share a singular body of work that’s found them spending more than 20 years of working the road and paying their dues, resulting in seven albums.
We are the “Alpha & Omega” of

Singer-songwriter Brett Dennen is a contemplative introvert by nature, an adventurer by soul, and the great communicator by effect. Much of his music stems inspiration from indulging in the natural environment around him – from camping trips along the Sierra Nevada mountain range to climbing Everest and Kilimanjaro. In the consistent succession of six previous albums, Dennen has fluidly motioned between worlds of self-reflection and discovery, and interacting with the environment outside of the self.

Cracker has been described as a lot of things over the years: alt-rock, Americana, insurgent-country, and have even had the terms punk and classic-rock thrown at them. But more than anything Cracker are survivors. Cofounders Lowery and Hickman have been at it for a quarter of a century — amassing ten studio albums, multiple gold records, thousands of live performances, hit songs that are still in current radio rotation around the globe (“Low,” “Euro-Trash Girl,” “Get Off This” and “Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out With Me” to name just a few), and a worldwide fan base — that despite the major sea-changes within the music industry — continues to grow each year.
