Willy Mason - Live Concert - 2013

by Carmel Holt
Laura Fedele

Willy Mason’s career has been an amazing series of important connections and relationships (or as he put it, “accidents”). It began with his initial discovery by a friend of Conor Oberst, which led to his subsequent tour with Bright Eyes and the release of his debut, Where Humans Eat, on Oberst’s Team Love Records. Since then Willy has earned the admiration and support of Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, collaborated with Lianne La Havas on her Mercury-prize nominated debut, and recorded a few of his parents’ songs with Brendan Benson in Nashville, which resulted in a Record Store Day release. Now he has been signed by Communion Records - the label of Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons - and his third album, Carry On, will be released in the U.S. in August. Willy shared material from Carry On and a couple of his parents’ songs during this intimate and engaging FUV Live performance at The Living Room.
