An Interview with Mason McNulty


A new single release from Mason McNulty gives off a wonderful breed of honesty and a sort of youthful cry out that a lot of us can certainly relate to and it's all in the form of a lush and warm Americana-touched acoustic pop single that boasts enough character for you to latch right onto and this is what keeps things addictive and interesting.


"Lessons of Love" is a gorgeous track that has a sort of cinematic feel to it and the instrumentation across this release is robust, but everything keeps to a subtle tonality that's never pushed too far but dynamically balanced so that the song hits all the sweet spots with a tasteful approach.


What I love about this track is its complete honesty and straightforwardness because Mason is in a way wearing his heart on his sleeves and talking about how the heartbreak that he's gone through are indeed lessons of love for him and this is something we can all relate to of course especially if we've had our heart broken.


What gets me about this track is the way he articulates it and does so with such beautiful honesty and with that he delivers a message that a lot of us understand but can't quite articulate the way artists like Mason do.


For Mason, this is probably quite cathartic but for the listener, it's something that we totally get and makes perfect sense to us to the point where this track can certainly serve as a part of the soundtrack to a certain chapter in our own lives which is an absolutely astounding connection and something we end up holding on to.


Songs like this have a bit of meaning to them and it will cause memories of your own to pop into your head at random.


The track features acoustic and electric guitar and it does have that little bit of southern-kissed undertone as well which adds to that character I mentioned earlier so, musically everything is so forward-moving and has such a wonderful flow to it but it's his vocals that reach out and grab you.


Again, this track does deliver a particular warmth and with all the instruments melting together in a way it creates a certain atmosphere for you to fall right into, and the track ends up being a little bit of an escape because it pulls you away from your surroundings and puts you into someone else's life for a few minutes.


I think the world needs more music like this because it's so relatable and the track is delivered with charisma, persona, warmth, and definitely plenty of heart so you know it all came from a genuine place and is completely authentic.


With the release of such a well-woven single, we wanted to have a sit down with Mason McNulty to find out where this actually came from and what might be coming up next for the artist.


Here's what happened.


Buzz Slayers: Okay, let's start with Lessons of Love! This release was emotionally driven and very personal! How did this come about?

 

It came about when I sat down and truly thought about my feelings and the things that I have been through these past few years. I was looking for ways to heal from my past relationships. And writing it out and then singing about it definitely helped. 

 

Buzz Slayers: How did this all start for you musically?

 

I have been taking singing lessons since I was very young. I got more serious about singing when I was up for a part on a major kids show. And then I got inspired to write a song after watching some of my friends who wrote their own songs. 

 

Buzz Slayers: What kind of things really inspire songs for you? 

 

What I find to be inspiring to me in my songs are my emotions. I feel that I can connect with those feelings and express the way I am feeling. I have found that when I am able to express my emotions and feelings I am able to heal my wounds. My hopes are that I can help someone who may be feeling the same way as I do. 

 

Buzz Slayers: This release has some great approaches to it! Can you give us some of your biggest influences musically?

 

Mostly I would say that my biggest influences musically are my friends who have a band. I love watching them perform and make new music. They inspire me to do better and put my heart out there. 

 

Buzz Slayers: What are you doing when you're NOT working on music? 

 

When I am not working on music, I am going to college, producing movies, auditioning or taking all my acting classes or music lessons. I keep a pretty busy schedule.

 


Buzz Slayers: Who's in your headphones right now?

 

There are several artists that are in my headphones now. I like to listen to a wide range of music such as country-pop, heavy metal and oldies. 

 

Buzz Slayers: Are you doing any live performances right now?

 

I am not doing any live performances as of right now. I can keep everyone posted when I do. 

 

Buzz Slayers: Do you record these at a big studio or do you have a home studio set-up?

 

I recorded my song at a studio. KThrash produced my song. Kevin is such a cool and chill guy to work with. I am looking forward to doing more with him. 

 

Buzz Slayers: What can your fans expect from you in the near future?

 

What my fans can expect from me is I plan on writing and putting out some more music. I also plan on auditioning and acting. As all of these things have become my passion.  

 

Buzz Slayers: Before we go, what would you like to say to fans of the music?

 

What I would like to say to the fans is, Thank You for all your support and dedication. It truly means a lot to me that you have all made me feel comfortable and cheering me on.
