The term “Caprock” may not initially spark ideas of a music genre, but Mason and the Gin Line are working to change that. Their new EP “Caprock Composition” released in December 2020 is rising on the charts and being picked up by regional radio stations. Simultaneously, their upbeat and strong rock and roll/country sounds are striking a chord with many. Their love of Lubbock and Buddy Holly can also be heard in the song “The King” on the EP through the nostalgic guitar riffs throughout.
Mason and the Gin Line was created by lead vocalist Mason Server and his childhood pal bass player Blaze Butler. Whether the two musicians knew it or not, starting a band was always in their future as they have been playing and writing music together since high school. With the addition of Lubbock drummer Russ Jones and James Urias on guitar, this up and coming group is one to watch.
Mason and the Gin Line’s first produced single called “Loose Tonight” was recorded by Eric Harrison, a Lubbock native and owner of the Austin-based recording studio, Studio 601. After reaching out to the guys inviting them to work with him to record “Loose Tonight”, the song received local and regional radio air time which encouraged the band to record more.
