2021

Singer/songwriter Willy Mason spent New Year’s Eve 2019 at Signal Corps Recording in Brooklyn. At 11:30 p.m., he, producer Noel Heroux, and sound engineer Rachel Alina completed mixing the songs that would become Mason’s new album, Already Dead. It was a good way to end one decade and usher in a new one.

Then the global pandemic hit.

Jemima James and her son Willy Mason shared the bill as the Martha’s Vineyard Museum kicked off its 2021 Music in the Courtyard series.

2019

Close to 100 Islanders of all ages, including entire families with children in pajamas, turned out for Willy Mason’s concert at the West Tisbury Public Library.

2015

Musical hero Willy Mason played to his roots on Martha’s Vineyard Saturday evening, headlining a free concert.

2013

Willy Mason is sitting on a barstool in a London pub, smoking a cigarette and considering the last decade. He takes a pull on his beer and thinks about what all the buzz — tours with Radiohead, collaborations with the Chemical Brothers and duets with KT Tunstall and Rosanne Cash — has really meant to the young bard now closing in on 30.

Willy

Few people embody the statement “still waters run deep” more than Island singer-songwriter Willy Mason, equal parts thoughtful and lighthearted as he considers his musical roots and his career.

He is half done with his next album, which should be released around January. In August and September, he will be playing festivals in the United Kingdom.
