With three albums under his belt, Mason has now found his space on the musical landscape, conjuring the wistful wonderment of Elliott Smith, Grandaddy, Villagers and Matthew Jay.
Flowing gently by, amid a sea of hushed lilting vocals, whispering lyrical poeticism and subtle instrumentation, Mason reveals himself master of hook, harmony and heart. At times fragile, tender and touching, his songs are paradoxically permeated by an air of richness and comforting warmth, yet shrouded in melancholy, and draped in Mason’s intuitive song writing and storytelling abilities.
Conor’s latest album is 'On The Surface', out November 2, 2018 via Armellodie Records, was conceived, developed and rendered into life over eighteen months in his hometown of Derry, N. Ireland. In essence, it is an exploration living life with uncertainty; the highs and lows, curiosity and change, and significance, or insignificance, of humans in the universe - all told in his alluring, hushed lilting brogue. Understated and subtly refined, it is a record that doesn’t reveal all of its treasures at once, but with patience and repeated listens it will reveal itself to be beautiful, rich and assured album.
