The English singer-songwriter and guitarist from Worcester, first found fame with the rock band Traffic. Over his career, Mason has played, recorded and/or performed with many well known and notable musicians, including Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Michael Jackson, Steve Winwood, Fleetwood Mac, Leon Russell, Delaney Bramlett, Cass Elliot and, most recently, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, among others.
One of Mason’s most well known songs is “Feelin’ Alright”, recorded by Traffic in 1968 and later by many other performers, including Joe Cocker, who had a major hit with the song in 1969. Mason also wrote “Hole In My Shoe, for Traffic, which became a hit in its own right and he recorded “We Just Disagree”, his 1977 solo US hit written by Jim Krueger, which has become a US radio playlist classic.
In 2004, Mason was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a founding member of Traffic.
Renowned for such Traffic hits "Feelin' Alright" and "Hole In My Shoe" plus his solo signature tracks "We Just Disagree" and "Only You Know and I Know," MASON is excited to perform the music of Traffic. "I think that it is important to keep alive the legacy of four young men from the heartland of England and their contribution to contemporary music," says MASON. "And 'Traffic Jam'--aside from the obvious material--will hopefully grow into the basis for other artists to participate. Keep the spirit alive!"
The "Traffic Jam" concerts will feature hits and deep album cuts from 1967's Mr. Fantasy and 1968's Traffic albums and additional Traffic jams plus new material and a selection of classic DAVE MASON music.
