Josh Mason is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Wellington New Zealand. Drawing inspiration from an eclectic mix of acoustic pop, rock and new-age artists, his music typically emphasises acoustic guitar and piano, with common lyrical themes of introspection and romanticism.
Josh Mason first began producing and performing solo music in 2007 as part of a high school project. Prior to this he had been involved in a number of bands playing guitar, keyboards and drums. His first release was the 7 track EP, 'An Excerpt Of Lost Misinterpretations', released under the name 'The Zorath Megafield Project'. The EP was entirely self-produced, with all instruments being performed and recorded by Josh Mason. Stylistically the songs drew influences from heavy metal and acoustic music.
Josh Mason's next release was the full length debut album 'One Day', released around mid 2009. He described One Day as a conceptual album, using night and day as a metaphor for the combination of heavier and lighter music contained on the album. It also marks the transition in Josh Mason's style from heavy-metal to vocal orientated acoustic-rock..
The next release was a 4 track EP entitled 'Set Sail To A Light' in February 2012. This EP was released as a preview for the upcoming album 'Celestial'.
