Mason Hill - www.facebook.com/masonhillofficial Glasgow's Mason Hill are hot property right now! From winning the Highway To Hell UK battle of the bands competition, appearing at Download festival's Board Takeover, Ramblin' Man Fair, supporting the likes of Airborne and GUN to signing a multi-album deal with Frontiers Records - this is a group very much in demand! The Scottish quintet's brand of Modern Hard Rock results in a batch of uncompromising riffs accompanied by anthemic sing along choruses and stadium friendly ballads. Their high energy live shows impress wherever they play, and they display the swagger and confidence of a band that has being doing it for twentysome years. In 2008 two school friends, vocalist/guitarist Scott Taylor and lead guitarist James Bird, acted upon some musical commonality and hooked up to write songs together. The duo found almost instantaneous success, pipping some 12,000 artists to win the Scottish section of the European battle of the bands Surface Festival competition. This led to them performing at the O2 in London, but more importantly, planting seeds in their minds of what the future may hold. With their appetites well and truly whetted from this modicum of success, Taylor and Bird formed Mason Hill in 2013 with drummer Craig McFetridge being the first to join the ranks. After a few personnel changes, bassist Matthew Ward settled into the role in 2015, with guitarist Marc Montgomery completing the current line-up in 2016 - allowing Taylor to concentrate solely on vocals.
