It’s no wonder, though. Mason’s parents began unknowingly grooming him for a musical future by immersing him in it. “My whole family loved music, they loved having music on in the background, they loved family gatherings with music in the background. Any time the TV wasn’t on, there would be music,” he laughs. “My family was musical, but they didn’t play instruments. It was really all different types of music, too,” he adds, sounding abundantly grateful.
