MASON REED
YOU CANíT COME BACK FROM HEAVEN
SELF-RELEASED

Bridging a Grand Canyon sized gap between folk and outlaw country, Mason Reed surely has his work cut out for him on his latest five-track EP YOU CANíT COME BACK FROM HEAVEN. This self-professed dirty hippy (indignantly claiming to be the bastard child of Charles Manson), tackles the daunting task before him with a gritty gravel-throated delivery and a quirky style that finds a middle ground between ZZ Top, Waylon Jennings, Steve Earle, and Hank Williams Jr. Embracing modern alt-country moodiness without leaving two-step shuffling behind while waves of rich instrumentation boost the overall power from expositions of heartbreak and woe, Mason Reedís unorthodox and haggard style even finds itself traveling towards Van Morrison-like rhythm and blues rock Ďn roll, furthering this bluegrass and folk hybridís ability to do more than merely elicit a few tears in your beers.
