Leah Marie Mason is feeling nostalgic in her new song “Miss Us Then.”
Mason may have just broken out onto the scene this year with her viral TikTok that tugged at heartstrings, but she has the poise and skill of a seasoned artist. The Nashville-based singer, who recently caught the attention and approval of Dan + Shay for her Facebook cover of their song “From the Ground Up” is cementing herself as a true changemaker in the industry. Her “Far Boy” duet with Austin Burke debuted on Taste of Country and her latest collaboration with breakout star Kidd G on “Love Isn’t Real” was featured on numerous editorial playlists on release week, including the prestigious “Women of Country” Spotify playlist. Leah featured her single “I Wish” in a TikTok that has now gained over 1.4M likes. She recently joined the Song Suffragettes as one of their performers at The Listening Room.
Leah’s last single “Hannah” was released on 8/23/21 and was also featured on several highly esteemed playlists and even more editorial playlists. Her trajectory is growing at an immense rate, and Leah Marie Mason is one of 2021’s most established up-and-coming artists in country music.
Leah Marie Mason never tries to be perfect. Instead, the North Carolina-born and Nashville-based singer, songwriter, and artist allow her edges to frame an intimate and infectious brand of country that could resonate from a small town to the top of a big city. By doing so, she energizes the genre with universal pop appeal. By the age of eleven, Leah started performing in a classic rock band with her older brother, belting out Heart and Pat Benatar covers. After a year at Berklee College of Music, she transferred to Belmont University in Nashville. Inspired by everything from the classic songwriting of George Strait, bluegrass of The Steeldrivers, and 21st-century vibes of Billie Eilish and Dua Lipa, she spent countless hours writing and honed a sharp signature style, resulting in her debut single “Far Boy.” Taking the reins of her career, Leah watched YouTube tutorials about uploading media to Spotify, outsourced cover art, and finally decided to launch a TikTok page to promote “Far Boy.” The song played over a video captioned, “I called my ex to hang out so he could listen to this song I wrote about him,” and it organically exploded with 13 million views.
