mason hill

Rising Scottish stars Mason Hill have just signed a deal with Italian record label Frontiers Records which is predominantly known for producing classic rock and is also home to Night Ranger, Graham Bonnet, LA Guns and Mr Big plus many others.

Mason Hill recently played their first ever headline gig in their home city which was witnessed by our very own Johnny Main. You can see what happened right here.

The signing of the deal with Frontiers just solidifies the band's position as one of Britain's brightest young bands.

Mason Hill's blend of classic meets modern hard rock results in a batch of uncompromising riffs accompanied by anthemic sing along choruses and stadium friendly ballads. Their high energy live shows impress wherever they play and they display the swagger and confidence of a band that has being doing it for decades.

The band was originally formed in 2013 by two school friends, vocalist/guitarist Scott Taylor and lead guitarist James Bird, with drummer Craig McFetridge being the first to join their ranks. After a few personnel changes, bassist Matthew Ward settled into the role in 2015, with guitarist Marc Montgomery completing the current line-up in 2016 - allowing Taylor to concentrate solely on vocals.

Mason Hill spent the next few years learning their craft on stages up and down the UK touring circuit. This included some high profile shows supporting Graham Bonnet, Snakecharmer, Toseland and Marco Mendoza and in December 2015, they released their debut self-titled EP. Featuring four tracks, the EP highlighted exactly why this band are turning heads - outstanding songs that demonstrate a maturity far beyond their years.
