Born and bred on the Gold Coast, Ma­son Rack was raised on jazz, rock and surf­ing.

The rocker started play­ing per­cus­sion at the age of six with his mu­si­cian fa­ther.

Pro­gress­ing to drums, Ma­son was able to play any style of mu­sic from a young age.

Not afraid to break all the mu­si­cal genre rules, his lat­est al­bum Lim­its of Grip com­bines a clas­sic mix of heavy rock, blues, jazz and roots.

“To be suc­cess­ful as an artist, you have to have grat­i­tude, hu­mil­ity and man­ners,’’ says Ma­son.

Joined by Aram An­son on drums and Michael “Blacky” Cole on bass, the trio of tal­ented mu­si­cians erupt in a high-en­ergy per­for­mance.

Hav­ing played thou­sands of live shows, Ma­son has done eight in­ter­na­tional tours. He has used mu­sic as a pass­port to travel to places such as Canada, Ger­many, Nether­lands, Ja­pan and Van­u­atu.

In­flu­enced by the likes of Tom Waits, Muddy Wa­ters and Ben Harper, Ma­son’s gui­tar chops and lively shows are recog­nised Aus­tralia-wide.

“I just want to bring the best, mean­est, rockin’, swampy, smoky mu­sic to my au­di­ence,’’ says Ma­son.

“It is a show, more than just the mu­sic, it’s a vis­ual ex­pe­ri­ence too.’’ Ma­son Rack Band play South­port Sharks to­mor­row night.
