WIDE MOUTH MASON: AN INTRODUCTION
Wide Mouth Mason is a soul power trio comprised of Shaun Verreault (lead vocals/guitar), Safwan Javed (vocals/drums) and Gordie Johnson (vocals/bass).
Wide Mouth Mason's newest release is entitled NO BAD DAYS (July 12, 2011).
"We've called the record 'No Bad Days' because it perfectly describes the experience we had making it", says singer/ guitarist Shaun Verreault. "We worked on our 3rd record, 'STEW' with Gordie as producer [GOV'T MULE, NORTH MISSISSIPPI ALLSTARS]. When we decided to make a more organic "live off the floor" kind of record, we knew he was 'That Guy' and we couldn't be more excited about the results!"
This 'live off the floor' approach yielded stellar results on tracks like the break beat infused, "Shut Up & Kiss Me", and the CHRIS ROBINSON penned "Go Tell It To The Waterfall" which also features FACES keyboardist IAN MCLAGAN.
"The band's collective influences really came together on NO BAD DAYS", says producer/ bassist Gordie Johnson, "you can hear everything from THE ALLMAN BROTHERS to the ISLEY BROTHERS."
Check out the making of NO BAD DAYS... IT'S A MOVIE on YouTube for an inside look at their creative process. The guys even shot their own video for the song "Get A Hold Of You", highlighting the sense of humour and spontaneity that is part of every live show.
Wide Mouth Mason's unique approach to jamming has earned them two invitations to the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland (which resulted in the acclaimed 2009 DVD/CD release "Live! Montreux, Switzerland") and tours with AC/DC, ZZ Top and The Rolling Stones. They became one of the first North American rock bands to tour China in the 21st century. Previous albums have yielded such hit singles as "Midnight Rain", "My Old Self", "Why", "Smile" and "Change".
