Mason Reed has a story to tell. A story filled with broken hearts, bad luck, bloody concrete, rotten chances, ghosts, devils, witches, and women your mother warned you about. Reed?s five-song EP, ?You Can't Come Back From Heaven,? features his unique, soul-filled, smoky voice, and is evidence that the singer-songwriter genre still has a few tricks up its sleeve, and that real Americana music hasn?t been fluffed over with soft, computer-generated guitar sounds and auto-tuned pop punk vocals. Instead some of the genre's underground heroes, like Reed, are conjuring music and sounds as raw and haunting as ever before. In addition to his songwriting skills and musicianship, Reed is also known for his monster work ethic, Reed is currently booking a self-proclaimed ?never-ending tour? to support his new full- length CD. Recorded in Nashville the CD, which features appearances by both John Oates (Hall and Oates) and Stuart Mathis (Wallflowers), is due to be released in early September.
