We had the good fortune of connecting with Mason Adams and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Mason, can you share the most important lesson you’ve learned over the course of your career?
The most important lesson that being a musician has taught me is that everyone has the right to feel the way they want to about the music. Give the people their rights, and somewhere along the way you will find people that really feel your music on a different wavelength. Not everyone is always going to believe in you or support your vision along the way, and that’s OK, because that’s what makes your fans unique! We want to give something to everybody, while also knowing that it isn’t always for everybody.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Mason Adams Project formed 2 1/2 years ago and has been crushing the Dallas music scene while still working full-time jobs. Within our first 2 years as a band, we recorded our first Ep and played over 40 original shows in DFW and Austin. It is a challenge to manage band life, work life, and home life. Also, keeping 5 schedules is no easy task. Ultimately, the bands working dynamic and close bond is what sets us apart from other “weekend Warrior” acts. Goal setting has been a large part of our success and we have been able to accomplish so much in such a short time. Mason Adams Project takes the listener on a journey of life experiences, through story-telling and a dynamic musical approach.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
We want to shout out to our local Dallas music venues that have been such a strong stepping stone for the band. From starting out and barely having enough original material for a set, to now being able to perform multiple full-length sets of original music, Six Springs Tavern, Sundown at Granada, and Deep Ellum Art Co have been our biggest supporters and most played venues in DFW. We wouldn’t be anywhere without the support of these independent venues, their owners and staff! Thank you! Special shout out to our band photographer/videographer from day 1, Andrew Sherman @drewliophoto
