Dave Mason is an English singer-songwriter and guitarist and one of the founding members of the classic rock band Traffic. Mason and three other talented artists founded Traffic in 1967; however, his tenure with the band was disjointed after the release of their first album, Dear Mr. Fantasy later that year. Mason continually returned to work with Traffic, contributing songs to their albums such as his 1968 "Feelin' Alright?," which went on to become one of his personal signature songs. In 1971 Mason and Traffic split ways for good, and the musician continued to pursue music as a solo artist. Just a few years later Traffic disbanded and the remaining bandmates went on to pursue their own solo projects, though they did reunite in 1994 for a one time tour alongside the Grateful Dead. Since leaving Traffic, Mason has worked with a variety of artists including Fleetwood Mac, Michael Jackson, and Jimi Hendrix. As a solo artist Mason was meet with success, releasing several albums and touring across the world. During this time he has released several live albums from his tours. In 2014 Mason released his thirteenth studio album Future's Past, on which Mason rerecorded several tracks that were originally written and performed by Traffic. In 2015 he embarked upon his Dave Mason's Traffic Jam Tour, which serves as a career retrospective and allows the musician to revisit a collection of his music that spans his more than 40 years as a recording artist. Mason has commented that "I think that it is important to keep alive the legacy of four young men from the heartland of England and their contribution to contemporary music," regarding his decision to include cuts from his tenure with Traffic.
