About Mason Jennings
This year marks a significant anniversary for Mason Jennings, his first and self-titled release is in its 25th year of circulation throughout the Twin Cities and beyond, while Jennings himself sits on the verge of releasing his 14th full-length studio album, “Real Heart.” Jennings says “Real Heart” is a departure from his earlier work, speaking to the evolution of his sound as a product of getting older. “I think the perspective shifts a little bit. It’s all pretty personal. I think the big difference on this record is it’s not as many straightforward romantic love songs — a little more like a personal reflection record.” He added, “It doesn’t feel the same to me as my earliest stuff; it seems a little more unabashedly folk — there’s a little more sophistication to the harmonic stuff, too.” Jennings said the record, produced by Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard and Regan Hagar for the pair’s Seattle label Loosegroove Records, was four years in the making. It started as a conglomeration of songs written mostly on guitar and piano from his home, comparing the final product to something you might have heard from Cat Stevens or Nick Drake. “I started kind of collecting songs together and, I was like, well, maybe I’ll send him [Gossard] 20 songs,” Jennings said. “And then I was thinking maybe he would take the guitar off and we would maybe make an electronic album or something like that. So I sent him these songs, and he’s like, ‘No, I think it should be really acoustic; the guitar playing is really central to these.’ So we ended up making a real acoustic sort of record.”
