Mason Makes a Lively Entrance With Debut Album

Victoria, Texas native Mason Lively is making a big splash on his maiden voyage. His debut record has the Americana/alt-country singer flanked by big names like Lloyd Maines and Cody Braun, and a perfect mixture of country and rock sounds.

Lively has the look, the sound, and the passion for music to make something big of his blossoming career, which is now underway with the release of Stronger Ties. Matt Meinke interviewed the artist about his record, the subsequent touring, and his approach to a rapidly changing music business.
