Singer-songwriter Mason Jennings blends the personal insights of a poet, the political broadsides of a protest singer, and the musical eclecticism of a jazz musician with a rock & roller's passion. The result made him one of the most talked-about new artists on the acoustic music scene and has earned him a loyal cult following, as he moved over 100,000 copies of his first two albums and sold out shows around the country without the benefit of a major-label publicity department. He is well known for his simple yet catchy melodies, intimate lyrics, literary and historical themes, and distinct voice. He is currently working on his 8th studio album to be released in the Spring of 2011.
