Mason Rack originates from Southport on Queensland’s sunny Gold Coast. With his outstanding vocals, guitar and Weissenborn lap slide guitar, Mason delivers high impact performances to audiences everywhere he and his band appear. Mason is a local artist with incredible talent and passion for his music! Together with his band, Mason feels most comfortable playing blues, alt-rock, and roots originals.
Mason was born in the Southport Hospital, Queensland, and started performing at the tender age of 6 playing to charmed audiences with his dad. His father BILLY RACK was a multi-talented jazz musician, an awesome muso and all round legend. Mason said “he was the nicest man I ever knew, a lovely guy, I’ve always been around his music”. Mason was raised on jazz, rock and surfing. He looked set to have a career in surfing, but the lifestyle he was living had other ideas. After a visit to re-hab, music was the saving grace…
His influences include: Tom Waits, Tex Perkins, Jeff Buckley, Ben Harper, Violent Femmes, Dave Mathews, Rolling Stones, old blues masters, etc. Songwriter/performer Mason Rack is a natural entertainer, from a tapestry of slide guitar, deep broken glass vocals and story fuelled blues rock. In his own words “I just want to bring the best, meanest, horniest, rockin’, swampy, smokey music to my audiences” and “It is a show, more than just the music, it’s a visual experience too”.
