Hey! Welcome to A Song for Steve Mason, the UK national final for FdlC 12 in Palermo.
The Scottish musician Steve Mason was originally known from the Beta Band, a cult band which existed between 1996 and 2004, playing a mix between rock, folk music and electronica. He later released some music under the names King Biscuit Time and Black Affair, but in 2010 he released his first solo album in his own name called Boys Outside.
The selected songs all appear on his second solo album Monkey Minds in the Devil’s Time from 2013. Musically it is a very varied album containing elements of both rock, pop and funk among other things, and many of the songs have a certain melancholic flavour. The topics include lonelyness, despair and political issues.
1. “A Lot of Love”
3. “Oh My Lord”
