WILLY Mason will be in Queen’s University Speakeasy on Wednesday, May 4.

Singer/songwriter Mason is still kicking and picking after everyone thought he was licked.

He’s that songwriter that sang the song about wanting to be better than oxygen and cooler than TV and then became a popular singer and sang the song about having to save himself and then did just that and went home to his momma.

All this of course didn’t change the fact that writing a song is his favourite thing to do and singing a song is the best way he knows how to get through to people.

Mason was born in New York, the son of Jemima James and Michael Mason, both folk singers.

In the summer months of 2004 Mason recorded his debut album, Where the Humans Eat. Mason released his second album, If the Ocean Gets Rough, in March 2007.
