Wayne Mason is one of New Zealand's finest and most respected songwriters. “His songs explore the unloved, the unrequited romance, the tensions and the journey along the way...it's not all about happy endings”, but you sure can dance to it!

"Slashing through the undergrowth, laughing ourselves to sanity, diving head first into the future” are Wayne Mason - guitar, vocals, keyboards; Clinton Brown - bass; Richard Te One - drums; Greg Turner - guitar.

Wayne Mason has been described as a national icon and one of this country’s finest songwriters. In 1962 Wayne Mason - an Upper Hutt student - formed his first band the Southern Auroras. He’s become well known for the musical input he has brought to The Warratahs, Rockinghorse and The Fourmyula. His tune, Nature (recorded with The Fourmyula in 1969) was voted by APRA members in 2001 as New Zealand's best loved song for the past 75 years.

During his musical career he has opened for Billy Joel, Johnny & June Carter Cash, and has toured through Europe.

Sense Got Out (2008), his third "solo" album and first with his band The Fallen Angels, has some of his best work. Mason says these songs seek to understand the darker emotional side of human nature. The title song "Sense Got Out" was a finalist in the prestigious US-based International Song writing Competition (ISC) in 2006, judged by some of the world's top musicians.

The Fallen Angels are Mason’s touring band and damned fine musicians. “The first thing you have to consider when you’re in a band is that the musical direction of the band is a composite of all the members. With The Fallen Angels their input is immense, yet I have the freedom to control the creative process.”

Wayne Mason has become a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit, awarded for his services to the music industry.
