In Mason Rack’s own words: “I just want to bring the best, meanest, horniest, rockin, swampy, smokey, blues music to my audiences….” and at Greenfest 2009 that’s what he did.
Having just finished photographing the Botanics at the red stage, in the distance I heard a bluesy slide guitar wah riff that rang out like a beacon of light, lighting the way to Mason Rack’s performance.

Jamming alongside artist like Phil Emmanuel, Tex Perkins, Lisa Hunt, Renee Geyer and Xavier Rudd, accepting accolades from politicians, signing a recording deal with local label Bloodstock Records, scoring in the Top5 for Blues at the MusicOz Awards, being dubbed “the best new blues/roots act ever seen” at the Toyota National Gympie Music Muster, playing at the Quicksilver Pro in Coolangatta and also being supported by ”CULT INDUSTIES” all the signs are there in bold that Mason Rack’s star is definitely on the rise.
