West Monroe Brown Bag Lunch Concert Series: MASON GRANADE
The second concert will be held Wednesday September 8th featuring Mason Granade. Mason has been playing guitar and writing songs since he was 11 years old. Music has always been a big influence in his life, whether listening to the Beatles, Eagles and America, singing in the High School Choir or playing on the weekends in local rock bands. Mason has also traveled to the U.K. several times bringing classic rock to South Wales with the First West Band. His unique style and soft wide ranged voice allow Mason to cover many songs performed by some of the most well-known artists from the 60's 70's, 80's, 90's, and even current artists. Mason's music has even been in films such as "Flag of My Father" and "New Hope”, which featured collaboration with Naomi Holder for the title track, “New Hope Rising”. (link to Soundtrack) . He even had a cameo in “Flag of My Father”. Mason continues to grow and develop his musical and vocal talents to this day.
