Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’m LX Mason! I’m a singer-songwriter, originally from Florida, now based in Sydney, I love Taro milk tea and I’m anxiously counting down the days until Kingdom Hearts 3 comes out.
How did you get your start as a singer/songwriter?
I started writing MySpace poems in school and everyone made fun of me but I thought they were pretty good. So from there, I joined a band, then eventually started doing my own stuff. Along the way, I’ve had incredible music teachers and coaches who have helped me sharpen my craft.
How would you describe your musical style?
It’s a bit of everything blended into a pop smoothie. I grew up listening to pop, rnb, indie pop, rap, and rock. So I think you’ll find different elements of all of those influences in my songs.
What inspires you as a songwriter?
People inspire me. We’re so complex! All of my songs are me just processing different moments in life or putting a voice to a situation involving people important to me.
You released your debut single I Don’t in August, Tell us a little bit about that song.
Thanks for listening!
I Don’t was brought out of a frustration of living under some hypocritical social standards, opinions, social media (the list goes on). I noticed other people felt the same way and decided we all needed a “let’s punch this in the face” type song.
I Don’t has already received over 30,000 streams on Spotify. Did you ever expect it to have such early success?
Not at ALL! Haha honestly, I was just hoping it to get over the < 1000 point. It’s so rewarding after the hard work that went into it and a glimpse into what’s coming.
Do you have any plans for an EP or full-length album?
That’s the plan! A video is coming for I Don’t veryyyyy soon, along with some new music. Once I have a collection of songs I’m absolutely in love with, I want to get an EP out in 2019.
What advice would you have for aspiring singer/songwriters?
Don’t get so wrapped up in promoting yourself that you forget what you love; music. It’s easy to buy into the hype, compare yourself to other artists, and spend pointless hours on IG trying to make yourself look like them. Keep making music you love and that’s it.
What’s a day in your life like when you’re not in the studio?
Hanging out with my gorgeous wife, writing down new ideas for songs, and I’m also in school full time haha
