Mason Jennings is an American singer/songwriter known to mix simple, effective songwriting with modern folk arrangements. By the age of 19, he'd bounced around the country, from Hawaii to Pennsylvania and Minnesota, all the while honing his acoustic guitar playing and knack for penning memorable melodies. His 1997 self-titled debut was full of a combination of fun, stripped-down rock songs and sparse, sensitive ballads, all bolstered by his unique and drawn-out vocal delivery. As his prominence has notched up over the years, Jennings has tweaked his style a touch by incorporating more involved production flourishes and trying his hand at political songwriting, but his simple effectiveness still lies at the core of his entire catalog.
