GUITAR / LEAD VOCALS / PERCUSSION
Mason Rack is a born entertainer – growing up playing percussion at the age of six with his musician father Billy Rack. Progressing to drums at age eight, Mason was able to play any style of music. For the next four years Mason developed a natural rhythm that is now part of his soul and way of life.
Mason picked up a guitar in his early years and mastered the genre of blues rock which is his true passion. His stage performance is an experience in itself. With more than 2500 shows performed including major music festivals throughout Australia, Canada, Germany, Netherlands and Italy – he shows no signs of slowing down.
The raspy vocals of lead front man Mason Rack have been described by fans as one on the “sexiest voices in the blues music scene” with flashes from Tom Waits and Led Zeppelin.
