Biography

There are two artists sharing the name Dave Mason:

Dave Mason of Traffic fame.

Dave Mason (born David Thomas Mason, May 10, 1944) is a musician, singer, songwriter, and guitarist from Worcester, England, who first found fame with the rock band Traffic. In his long career, Mason has played and recorded with many of the era’s most notable musicians, including Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Russ McLellan and Mama Cass Elliot. Mason’s best known song is “Feelin’ Alright”, recorded by Traffic in 1968 and covered by dozens of artists, including Joe Cocker, who had a major hit with the song in 1969. For Traffic, he also wrote “Hole in my Shoe”, a kind of psychedelic satire that became a classic in its own right. “We Just Disagree”, Mason’s own 1977 solo hit, has become a staple of Oldies and Adult Contemporary radio playlists.

Dave Mason of The Reels fame.

Dave Mason (born David Mason) is a musician, singer and songwriter from Australia, who first found fame with the rock/indie pop group The Reels, which formed in Dubbo, New South Wales in 1976 and initially disbanded in 1991, they eventually reformed in 2007. Their 1981 song, “Quasimodo’s Dream”, was voted one of the Top 10 Australian songs of all time by a 100-member panel from Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA) in 2001.

The Reels had top 10 Australian Kent Music Report Singles Chart success with covers of Herb Albert’s “This Guy’s in Love With You” (No. 7, 1982) and Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Bad Moon Rising” (No. 11, 1986).

Rock music historian, Ian McFarlane described them as “one of the most original and invigorating pop bands to emerge from the Australian new wave movement of the late 1970s”.

    I have to agree w/a previous post about mellow songs, but has some licks on guitar, kinda too popish for my taste.

    Traffic showed his chops, to the point where he was good enough to be considered to replace Mick Taylor in the Rolling Stones before Ron Wood got the job. His singing is a bit too mellow for my tastes, but his guitar playing cooks.
