Mason Burns @ Lorenzo's Cafe

This 22-year-old of Penticton, British Columbia, grew up listening to Classic Rock:  Arlo Guthrie, Ten Years After, The Rolling Stones, Green Day, T. Rex and The Beatles are among the artists who have influenced his musical style. His all-time favourite  band is Led Zeppelin.  My music is “very 70’s sounding but with a fresh twist to it,” says Mason Burns.  These two songs, “Sunset Eyes” and “Electric Hunny”, are singles from his soon-to-be-released album, which was recorded entirely in analog at Ellis Avenue Analog Recording Studios in Summerland. Of the recording process, Mason says, “It’s like painting a picture and seeing it all come together before your eyes.” $10 cover.
