Barbara Mason

Ask anyone, and they’ll tell you that Barbara Mason has one of the sultriest voices every recorded. Ask Barbara herself, and she’ll tell you that she is a “song stylist”, attributing her remarkable talent to a God-given gift; one she takes no responsibility for. Whatever the case may be, one thing is certain. There is only one Barbara Mason. Originally pursuing a career as a songwriter while in her teens, Barbara entered the recording studio and quickly found her niche. Her first major hit, “Yes, I’m Ready”, broke in 1965 and found its way to the top of the charts. She reached the top 40 again, later in the year, with “Sad, Sad Girl.” Known for pushing the envelope for female soul singers, Barbara’s songwriting tackled adult subject matter. Love, relationships and betrayal were at the heart of her songs and audiences everywhere related to her. To this day, Barbara’s voice commands our attention. She was recently inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and was honored by the Rhythm and Blues Foundation. For more information, visit Barbara's website.
