“For me, it’s the only thing, it’s all I’ve ever wanted to do in life. Nothing else has ever really captured my passion in the same way as music.” Mason Watts
‘Recovery’ is the debut single from one of Australia’s most promising new artists, Mason Watts, co-written with Edd Holloway. What you see is what you get with this 20-year-old – passionate, talented and extremely driven – with a splash of cheeky confidence reflected in his combination of youth and experience.
Edd Holloway (whose worldwide success includes producing with Dean Lewis and Lewis Capaldi) says, “I first worked with Mason after hearing a demo he’d written back home in Australia and his voice immediately stuck out to me. There was some rawness in his performance that I loved”.
Mason’s self-taught musical ability resulted from countless hours at a young age pulling apart songs by artists he inspires, such as James Bay, Vance Joy and Matt Corby. “I very quickly became obsessed with song writing. The idea of being able to express the way I felt, through a song. Then being able to share that with people. Seeing them connect with something I created, that’s what really made me fall in love with making music”.
