June 17, 2009East Bay Express! - Your Daily Lick: Andy Mason
There's something about the harmonica, especially in folk music, that slays the soul. Bob Dylan knew it, when he'd leave his words hanging for a harp solo, and so does East Bay singer-songwriter Andy Mason, whose pop sensibility and troubadour personality are bridged by infrequent but beautiful harmonica swells throughout this solid sophomore effort.
...
Martinez resident Andy Mason has just released “Stories Told,� his second CD, featuring, like his first, guitar, vocals and harmonica. His songs are based on what he sees in front of him, and where those sights take his mind.
...
Andy also approaches vocals and phrasing like early Bob, a choice that is risky, to say the least, because if you love Bob, you don’t want to invite comparisons to one of the unquestioned masters of the folk scare of the early 1960s.
...
But Andy does go down that road, and he does a fair job of handling the task of singing his tunes well enough. There is a raw approach he uses, a punctuation to the lyrics that is sometimes unexpected, and not unexpected. Andy, being local, also writes about local themes, like beavers, as well as issues like the Iraq war.

May 06, 2009"Andy Mason is here to stay. - Maverick Magazine, June 2009
Andy Mason - STORIES TOLD Last Stop Records LSR-142 ****1/2
With its peaceful groove and guitar picking that grabs you by the jugular from the off, this is an album certainly worth each and every penny Hailing from California and with all tracks written by him, this debut album by Andy Mason sure is something else. Any music fan knows that the Golden State has been home to some most excellent bands over the years and on the basis of STORIES TOLD I cannot see why he can’t join the realms of the true greats.
Beginning quite like Bob Dylan, with harmonica sounding as though being played whilst positioned on a holder, Mason’s vocals on Dark Eyed Junco may be a tad higher than what Dylan sounded like in his prime but Andy has a message to tell the world and does it with such style.
...
Beginning with harmonica once more, it seems Andy certainly likes to include a heck of a lot of harmonica in his tracks and who can blame him, the guitar picking is most gracious and indeed superb. Simple it may be, but certainly worthy of being regarded as highly laudable. With its summer sound, Grandfather’s Eyes recounts of past times with such ease and passion that you can see quite a lot of personal memory was used in order for Mason to write this track. Like many of us who have lost those who are dear to our hearts, Mason seems to have adapted his own life experiences in order to create a quite beautiful track which is deserved of being played to an attentive and appreciative audience.
Despite the album being only nine tracks in length, it crams an awful lot of material into this short space of time. Many artists who produce great debut albums often fade into the twilight and are no longer to be seen again; Andy Mason is no one-hit wonder and is here to stay. RH

April 24, 2009Stories Told - a review by Toxic Pete (UK)
'Stories Told' is the new album from Californian folk troubadour Andy Mason; featuring pretty-much stripped back to bare bones instrumentation, 'Stories Told' is a deep and meaningful work about life's trials and tribulations from one singer/songwriter's point of view. Maybe not quite 'protest' songs but getting close!
Andy Mason sings with infectious simplicity as he 'cries' out his lyrics against empathetically restrained guitars and harmonica. Bitter-sweet additional sentiment is occasionally added via dobro and keyboards but generally this is an album about one man and his songs. And, what a great job Mason does here; his style is pretty unique and it conjures up pictures of man and guitar sitting in rocking chair on the porch, guitar in hand, singing to the moon.
This is a very chilled work that errs on the country-blues side of acoustic folk. Mason's songs are delivered with a gritty honesty and surprising clarity allowing the listener to see inside the songs and feel the sentiment along with the artist. Nothing's rushed, there's no unnecessary clutter and nothing's over-stretched, 'Stories Told' is just about as real as it gets and benefits greatly from its laid bare and cleverly open production; Andy Mason tells it like it is and allows you to get in close and really feel his songs and live in them.
Listening to 'Stories Told' by Andy Mason is like listening to a modern-day Woody Guthrie; songs that are instrumentally spacious yet punctuative, lyrics that are poignant and meaningful and a delivery that's honest and heartfelt. 'Stories Told' by Andy Mason is a gloriously easy, timeless sounding album to sit and think about as you let it's subtle beauty waft around you and work its magic - stripped-back maybe but no less hard-hitting and tangible for all its realism - mean and damn dirty nu-folk with country undercurrents and blues nuances - really cool stuff this and one that I'll be re-visiting quite often if only to get myself a reality check!
...
This second album from San Francisco based folkie Mason is a low-key affair with nine songs that stand up well to repeated listens. The prominent sounds are Mason’s acoustic guitar and harmonica. On various songs he is joined by pedal steel, dobro, and keyboards, all done very tastefully.

March 25, 2009CD: Andy Mason - a review by AltCountry (Netherlands)
...
Last Stop Records from San Francisco brings Andy Mason's Stories spun to us. Mason is a politically engaged singer-songwriter which already a half dozen has cd on its name stand on which he reads on traditional folkblues shoed its songs for the voetlicht brings. Andy Mason has the same dragging, lijzige voice sound as fellow record label artist JJ Schultz.
...
Mason are appropriate years sixty San Francisco to old-fashioned tradition of beginning in a type, beatpoets and folksingers in coffee houses.
...
Mason is een politiek geëngageerde singer-songwriter die al een half dozijn cd’s op zijn naam heeft staan waarop hij op een traditionele folkblues geschoeide leest zijn liedjes voor het voetlicht brengt. Andy Mason heeft hetzelfde slepende, lijzige stemgeluid als labelgenoot JJ Schultz.
