i watched
my whole world crumble
as i dried my mother’s tears
and learned to never stumble
as i calmed my father’s fears
they say ive seen a lot
they say im wise beyond my years


from the beautiful massachusetts tiny island of martha’s vineyard, willy mason has literally been playing guitar since he was 12. incorporating levels of folk, country and blues, his whole approach to music making is very simple; he enjoys to play just the acoustic and prefers the genuine feeling of honest music story-telling. originally after conor oberst caught the beauty of willy performing one evening, he immediately signed him onto his label, team love records. now at the ripe age of 22, after releasing two cds, switching to the label astralwerks and performing before great main acts like my morning jacket, bright eyes and just recently hand-picked by radiohead, willy mason has slowly captured the hearts and minds of fans of all ages sharing a familiarity that proves he is truly mature beyond his years.

About The Author


“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle Maree, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
