June 11, 2021 Mountain Fever Records releases the brand new single from rising star Mason Via, titled "Big City."
You might know Mason as the newest member of Old Crow Medicine show (who he recently made his Grand Ole Opry debut with.) You also may have seen him on this past season of American Idol, in which he made it into the Top 40 finalists. Mason also recently signed a record deal with Mountain Fever Records and has a new bluegrass album set to release later this year. On top of all of that, the legendary and highly acclaimed Del McCoury Band has recently recorded one of Mason's original songs to be released on their next album.
Mason Via (Nashville, TN) grew up going to fiddler’s conventions and music festivals around NC and VA, where he was steeped in the rich Appalachian culture that surrounds that area. Picking and singing from an early age, Mason combines soulful high lonesome singing with virtuosic instrumental prowess. Mason's lyrics are also considered by many to be the driving force behind his music, and his vocals back up the deep emotion that his lyrics possess. Catch Mason Via performing with Old Crow Medicine Show or with his own solo project.
In 2016 the talented young man completed a Virginia Folklife Songwriting apprenticeship with his father, award-winning songwriter David Via. Mason has placed in contests and picked up ribbons at several conventions and festivals throughout Appalachia. Mason Via was named the 2019 Floydfest OTR competition runner-up and is a 3-time winner of the Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival's band competition.
