"John-Alex's new album knocks my socks off!" - John Hammond
"One of the deepest young cats on the scene today." - Steady Rollin' Bob Margolin, Muddy Waters' Longtime guitarist.
"Calling John Alex Mason a "one man band" is a little misleading, because it sounds like three different people in harmony. It's not the novelty that makes it great, it's the powerful effect of the percussion, vocals and the guitar coming from the same soul. It comes across relevant, tribal and a wide groove, good listening and toe tapping, hell, you can dance to it too!" - John Catt, President, Grand County Blues Society and director of the Blues from the Top Fest.
"Mason is one heck of a cool cat that brings his soul to every damn show: "rollin' this blanket out on stage". That deep voice callin' out an americana style is enticing to any audience young and old alike. He's nothin' short of a crowd pleaser." -Brad Mallen, Owner, TrouserMouse Bar.
"WOW! I have long admired the way that John-Alex Mason plays and sings, he is a real pro and it is clear that he "feels it"! His "one man band" show at the Trinidaddio Blues Fest "Pre-Fest" takes John-Alex up another rung (or two, or three!) on my ladder. Even though John-Alex was sponsored by our friends at the Colorado Blues Society, I usually stay away from having one person acts play for more than 30minutes or so. Really...even trios don't normally get that much more. John-Alex Mason played...all by his lonesome, for nearly two solid hours to a packed (500 tickets sold!) crowd that were waiting to hear Bernard Allison's guitar magic. Not only did the set please the "natives" who can become restless...they loved it...so did I! If I needed any convincing that John-Alex Mason is the "real deal" (I really didn't!)...I sure got it on that Friday nite in Trinidad! What a great guy and what a great act!" - Neil Sexton, Founder, Trinidaddio Blues Fest
