north east scotland's festival of new music

Major Matt Mason USA

Major Matt Mason USA has been making music since the late 80's. In the early 90's he moved to New York City where he runs Olive Juice Music: an independent record label/recording studio/online distribution store. He plays in the bands Schwervon! and Kansas State Flower as well as his solo project Major Matt Mason USA. Part of the now infamous East Village DIY Antifolk Community whose unorthodox world of misfit songwriters and lofi amateurs provided Matt with a chance to develop his voice and vent about subjects like the ever changing landscape of New York and the rapid deterioration of the relationship he just moved half way across the country for.

His influences range from Bob Dylan to Sonic Youth and so far he's recorded 5 Major Matt albums. The DIY spirit is a big part of Matt's art and lifestyle as he continues to carve out a niche for truly modern American Folk music.
