Biography

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada (1995 – present)

Wide Mouth Mason is Shaun Verreault, Gordie Johnson, and Safwan Javed.

From the “Paris of the prairies” (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada) comes the the power trio known as Wide Mouth Mason (WMM). Currently, the lineup is comprised of Shaun Verreault, Gordie Johnson, and Safwan Javed.

The original line-up featured Shaun, Safwan, and Earl Pereira, who began playing together in 1993, and their first performances as Wide Mouth Mason coming approximately two years later. As Wide Mouth Mason, the three young men from Saskatoon began to build a fan base, the guys taking their band name from jars of the same name that they once used to drink from. In April 2010, Earl decided to pursue other musical opportunities with his band Mobadass. In February 2011, Gordie Johnson (Big Sugar, Grady) officially joined Wide Mouth Mason as bassist and vocals after helping Safwan and Shaun out in the same role on 2010 gigs.

From their beginnings performing in rural Alberta in 1995, Wide Mouth Mason has seen its fan base grow in Canada and extend to other areas of the world such as the United States and in Europe… as well as becoming one of the first North American bands to tour China in the 21st century. With each new fan gained often quick to share the discovery of Wide Mouth Mason’s music with others who have yet to hear the band’s music. While Wide Mouth Mason’s studio catalogue provide musical snapshots of a band’s journey and growth, it is the opportunity of hearing the guys perform live that is something not easily described or captured, only experienced.

    No Bad Days could very well be their best album to date.

    HAHAHAHA! The biography is the cheesiest, least-objective, pile of fan-written drivel I think I've ever seen on this site. Like the band though. At least the first two albums. Rained Out Parade was kind of a disappointment.

    wide mouth mason is my favorite band simply because of their bluesy rock sound, its amazing what they can produce as a three piece band and especially live. shaun verrault might be the best vocalist/guitarist i have ever seen let alone heard. if they went back to their early sounds they might still be big in canada doing bigger shows like they used to, still nothing but love for the band.

    Why do I never get around to seeing these guys play. I still really like their first 3 albums, and I'm sure their new stuff is better live... must see 'em next time around... just thinking out-loud here.

    I can't believe these guys are so unknown on Last.fm... they were really quite big in Canada a few years ago.
