Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame Inductee - World Renown Artist

"Feeling All Right" "Only You Know and I Know" "Dear Mister Fantasy" "We Just Disagree" "40,000 Headmen"  "Shouldn't Have Took More Than You Gave" "Sad and Deep As You"

At age 18, the Worcester England native teamed up with Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi, and Chris Wood, to form the legendary band, Traffic, whose profound influence over rock music, and generations of fans remains unquestioned even today.

At 19, Mason penned the song ‘Feelin' Alright’, which was first recorded by Traffic and has since become a global anthem; recorded by dozens of artists since, including Joe Cocker, who had a major international hit with the song in 1969. It is still a high point of his live show today.

After extensive touring throughout the UK and Europe, Mason departed Traffic after their second album and headed for the USA to pursue a solo career. From there, he struck international gold with his debut album, ‘Alone Together’, which is considered a seminal rock classic.

Followed by five highly successful albums, (CBS/Sony) including ‘Dave Mason’ and ‘Mariposa De Oro’, four of which received gold albums in the US, his next album ‘Let It Flow’, has sold millions of copies over the years and contained another major Mason classic, "We Just Disagree".

In addition to performing to sold-out audiences and being a permanent staple in record collections and hearts of fans around the world, Mason is known for his guitar work on a number of landmark albums such as The Rolling Stones' ‘Beggar’s Banquet’, George Harrison's ‘All Things Must Pass’, Paul McCartney's ‘Listen To What The Man Said’, and Jimi Hendrix's "Electric Ladyland". The rock standard ‘All Along the Watchtower’ features Dave playing acoustic guitar, and is a big favorite in Dave's live show.

His work and career remain linked with numerous other members of rock and roll elite, including Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Fleetwood Mac, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, Rita Coolidge, Delaney & Bonnie, Leon Russell, Ron Wood, Jim Capaldi, Mama Cass Elliot, and The Spencer Davis Group.

Dave Mason's career thrives and has spanned several important rock eras. His talents have included producing, performing and song writing, as well as being one of rock's most respected guitar players. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a founding member of Traffic, and is considered an important figure in rock music history.
