We’re delighted to welcome the one and only Steve Mason to Ramsgate on December 8th!
Founding member of The Beta Band and a remarkable artist in his own right, Steve is a national treasure and a true RMH favourite. This one is deeply special for us. Roll on December!
“Capable of moving and energising its audience in equal measure, Mason has refined his art to a remarkable extent” – CLASH
Scottish singer, songwriter, and producer Steve Mason rose to widespread critical acclaim in the late ’90s as a member of indie darlings the Beta Band. With their creative songscrap approach and maverick attitude, the Beta Band earned a somewhat notorious reputation among fans and the U.K. press during the post-Brit-pop era, thanks to releases like 1998’s The Three EP’s and 2001’s Hot Shots II. During the Beta Band‘s heyday and following their 2004 breakup, Mason also recorded as King Biscuit Time and later set out on a proper solo career with albums like 2013’s Monkey Minds in the Devil’s Time and 2019’s About the Light.
“Like his psychedelic forebear, Mason’s music is evocative enough of his former glories to draw those fans in, but compelling enough on its own to keep them there” – Pop Matters
“Mason is going from strength to strength” – CLASH
“Well-conceived, vibrant, and executed with attitude and aplomb… a career standout for Mason” – All Music
